According to the Chicago Tribune, the Bulls and Wade have reached an agreement on a buyout of his $23.8 million option for the 2017-18 season, resulting in Wade becoming a free agent.
INDEPENDENCE - Point guard Isaiah Thomas could be back by January and shooting guard Dwyane Wade's next stop could be Cleveland. D-Wade's efficiency has dropped too.
After the Carmelo Anthony trade, the Oklahoma City Thunder have been thrust into the upper echelon of Western Conference teams, with a big three consisting of Russell Westbrook, Paul George, and Anthony himself. Last offseason, James recruited Wade to join Cleveland but the Cavs front office was strapped with salary-cap issues. His 45 3-pointers last season in Chicago were his most since 2010-11, but Wade shot just 31.0 percent on those attempts.More news: Chance Warmack seems headed for Philadelphia Eagles' lineup on Sunday

It's believed Wade walked away from his hometown team with a cool $16 million.
"The thing is, I did an MRI on Friday, and the doctor said they were really happy with the MRI", Parker told Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated. After years of being underpaid with the Miami Heat (he was never their highest-paid player), he found a front office that was willing to give him a massive golden parachute deal and buy him out.
It makes sense why the latest Lakers rumors involve Dwayne Wade; because he would be a great addition to the Lakers. However, the Lakers may not be Wade's priority list but the organization might be able to convince him to play alongside rookie Lonzo Ball. Wade is also receiving interest from Miami, a place he played 13 of his 14 National Basketball Association seasons at. The Heat have made it clear by expressing interest in Wade only if he takes a backup role to their depth of guards already there. The now-Thunder star will try to bring Wade down to his new city with him. While the team does have Luol Deng and Brook Lopez, Wade has won three NBA Finals, he has seen so much throughout the league and he really could help turn both guys into something special.
