Dwyane Wade and LeBron James became one of the finest duos the NBA league has ever seen. The former Miami Heat teammates showed the world the kind of energy and results they can offer together. Alas, the pair had to go separate ways: James going back to Cleveland, while Wade opted to stay.

Later on, Dwyane Wade went to Chicago after a turmoil involving him and the Heat’s front office. The rest was history. Now, the latest reports about Wade suggest that he already filed the necessary paperwork to be with the Bulls for another season. However, there is a possibility that he and James will team up in the Cavaliers.

Wade signed because of Jimmy Butler

According to FOX Sports, there are two reasons why the superstar signed with the Bulls: one is because of the money and two because of Jimmy Butler. However, everyone knows that Butler had been traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves just recently. The second reason is definitely out of the topic anymore. This even goes without saying that the management also plans to buy out Rajon Rondo.

Sure, the intentions of Chicago’s front office is very clear: they want to rebuild the team. But with Butler gone, how can they really expect Dwyane Wade to carry them. This guy is past his prime and although he can still put out decent numbers, he himself knows that he needs the skills of Butler and Rondo.

With him being left out in the dark, there is no reason to believe he will not leave.

Off to Cleveland he goes

Dwyane Wade always have the option to ask the Chicago Bulls to buy him out, though the front office can still make an appeal. If things go south and Wade wants out, there is no other place for him but Cleveland. Sure, the talks about the Cavaliers being deep in the salary-cap issue are true; however, it cannot be denied that they are also in need for a significant upgrade.

The Cavs’ loss to the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals is proof to that.

To make way for Dwyane Wade, the plausible trade option the Cavs have is none other than Kevin Love. There are even reports about Cleveland trying to acquire Paul George out of Love, but the Pacers did not vouch. They believe there is more to George out in the market.

If the Cavs decide to keep Love, they can resort to letting J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert go. However, this tricky trade will not be possible if Wade does not let himself go into market. But if he does, Cleveland is the most fitting team he can choose. Together with James, he can once again try a championship run and make his retirement sweet.
