People Close to LeBron James 'Confident' Dwyane Wade Will Join Cavs

People Close to LeBron James 'Confident' Dwyane Wade Will Join Cavs

Wade's kids attended school in Chicago a year ago.

This comes at the heels of a report from ESPN's Nick Friedell suggesting Wade could push for a buyout from the team and that there is a "widespread belief within the organization... a deal that would allow Wade to play elsewhere will eventually get worked out at some point during the season". "The young players on the Bulls really can't stand Dwyane", adding, "it's no secret they have had enough".

If Wade signs with the Cavs, it's unlikely they would still have Irving on the roster. Also, as documented on his Snapchat, Wade was recently in Miami teaching his kid how to drive (in a flippin' Ferrari, by the way).

Friedell says those players didn't appreciate Wade questioning their desire to win when Wade himself was not walking his talk, particularly as he sat out practices.

The prospect of Dwyane Wade playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers has only been speculation, considering he's still under contract with the rebuilding Chicago Bulls.

"People close to James are fairly confident that, at some point this year, Dwyane Wade is going to end up on the Cavs", Vardon told co-host Chris Fedor .

While the possibility of Wade joining LeBron in Cleveland is on the table, the timing and Wade's current contract certainly matter. Wade is set to earn $23.8 million this season, and Chicago doesn't want to pay that to Wade just so that he doesn't play for them.

Barcelona start with victory on emotional night
There was a first start for Nelson Semedo at right back, with Paco Alcacer and Gerard Deulofeu partnering Lionel Messi in attack. Barcelona had been given permission to make the changes to their home shirt from the Royal Spanish Football Federation.

His Team USA connections and upper echelon standing among National Basketball Association circles would give Denver more clout among the rest of the league with Wade's services and give Denver a chance at landing bigger free agents next summer. Chances are, he'll end up with a big portion of what he's owed. He is a season removed from making the Eastern Conference All-Star team and, in the 2014-15 season, averaged 21.5 points and 4.8 assists per game.

As it turns out, however, Wade might not be getting all of that amount, and he might not even spend that much time with the Bulls this upcoming season.

If he were to rejoin the Heat, it's unclear what kind of role it would be in. They could start all three of them. In late April, Wade said he'd keep an open mind about coming off the bench.

That could open the door for Cleveland.

Wade now projects as the starting shooting guard for the regular-season opener, but he may be relegated to coming off the bench when Zach LaVine - the centerpiece of the Jimmy Butler trade - is deemed healthy enough to return from his ACL rehab.

We'll have to wait and see what happens with Wade.

Michael Malone, the coach Wade took a liking to after his free-agent meeting with the Nuggets in 2016, is still drawing up the X's and O's. The Heat and the Cavaliers make sense as eventual landing spots, but other teams may emerge as well.
