At 35-years-old the former perennial All-Star, Dwyane Wade is on the decline. He has shown interest for an opportunity to compete for the championship. After 13 wonderful years in Miami, Wade decided to join his hometown team the Chicago Bulls last summer.
The Bulls made the playoffs last year as the eight-seed, but ultimately fell short to the Boston Celtics within six contests. The Chicago organization decided to move into a rebuilding direction by trading away their former franchise centerpiece, Jimmy Butler. Unfortunately for Chicago, the trade return was not as good as many predicted.

Due to the scarce amount of moves by the Bulls, Wade is hopeful for a buyout which will grant him the opportunity to sign wherever he pleases. It is widely-believed that the Cleveland Cavaliers, Los Angeles Lakers, and even Wade’s former team, the Miami Heat, will all emerge as main contenders to land Wade.

The Miami Heat have interest in their former champion, but only if he agrees to come off the bench, and sign for Miami’s exception of $4.3 million dollars. Miami already has a team that will likely make the Playoffs in the mediocre Eastern Conference. The acquisition of the former Marquette product would be a good idea for both parties involved.
