Report: Miami, Los Angeles also appealing destinations for Dwyane Wade
While many are already anticipating the buyout talks between shooting guard Dwyane Wade and the Chicago Bulls to start at any moment, they have yet to take place this offseason.
ESPN reported that LeBron James’ camp has the expectation that his former teammate would “wound up in Cleveland at some point this season” — but an associate of Wade has told people that Miami and Los Angeles are also appealing landing spots for the 12-time All-Star, according to Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald.
While Jackson hasn’t jumped the gun in any of these comments, he mentioned that this associate of Wade’s was the first to come to him with news that talks of a re-up between him and the Miami Heat weren’t going well, which ultimately turned into Wade parting ways with the organization and signing a two-year deal with the Bulls.
No one really knows where Wade’s head at when it comes to his destination other than those close to him, but if one thing is sure is that the 35-year-old isn’t keen on staying with a rebuilding organization after losing two of his key teammates in Jimmy Butler in a trade and Rajon Rondo after he was waived.
Wade left the door open on a possible return to the Heat before the day he retires, but could opt to land in another top-notch destination like Los Angeles in hopes of adding to his ring collection.
