The NBA season is right around the corner as it is set to begin on October 17 later this year. The offseason made a mark in the NBA with new rules and schedules, but no bigger mark could be made as big as the Kyrie Irving yesterday. That now only leaves Carmelo Anthony to be the only all-star expected to be traded before training camp begins. Here are a few more updates on the NBA free agency scene:

Milwaukee wanted Giannis and Irving combo

Numerous NBA teams were interested in Kyrie Irving this offseason, from the San Antonio Spurs, Minnesota Timberwolves, New York Knicks, and many other teams.

One team in particular who almost closed in the deal was the Milwaukee Bucks, as they offered Khris Middleton, Malcolm Brogdon, and a first round NBA draft pick for Kyrie Irving as reported by John Gambadoro on 98.7 Phoenix. This was in the hope of pairing up Giannis and Kyrie Irving together next season.

Khris Middleton had a great year last season in the NBA as he shot a career high from the three point line, he averaged 14.7 points, 0.2 blocks, 1.4 steals, 3.4 assists, and 4.2 rebounds while shooting 45 percent from the field, 43.3 percent from the three point line, and 88 percent from the charity stripe. Malcolm Brogdon could have also been a great addition as he impressed everyone last season in his rookie year, this offseason he concentrates on improving and keeping that momentum up for next season.

Wade and LeBron could be teammates again

Everyone can remember the amazing run Dwayne Wade and LeBron James made when they were in Miami along with Chris Bosh; they won two NBA titles together. A reunion of Wade and LeBron could be possible as reported by Joe Vardon by CBS Sports. As reported a few weeks ago this offseason it has been said that the Chicago Bulls and Dwayne Wade are likely to agree on a buyout deal as the Bulls are now shifting to rebuild mode for next season.

Vardon said in a podcast that people close to LeBron James are confident that Wade will end up in Cleveland, especially now that Cleveland saved around 21 million in luxury tax after the Kyrie Irving trade yesterday.

Last season Wade averaged 18.3 points, 0.7 blocks, 1.4 steals, 3.8 assists, and 4.5 rebounds while shooting 43.4 percent from the field while playing a career low of 29.9 minutes. Wade will enter his 15th season in the NBA next season, reuniting with LeBron in Cleveland this offseason could be an amazing story for Wade, LeBron, and the Cleveland franchise.
