It remains uncertain whether Dwyane Wade will continue wearing the Chicago Bulls jersey this coming season. The 12-time All-Star remains hopeful that he and the Bulls management could finally sit down and talk about the direction of the team.

For now, since he already opted in on the second year of his contract with the Bulls, he plans to honor his word. “The only thing I'll say is right now my plan is to be in training camp,” Wade told the Chicago Tribune in an interview.

Rebuilding the Chicago Bulls

The three-time NBA champion was reportedly unhappy following the surprise trade of Jimmy Butler to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

According to sources close to the situation, Wade agreed to opt into his second year with the Chicago Bulls with the assumption that he and Butler will lead a competitive Chicago Bulls team next season.

But Wade was misled -- Butler got traded along with the Bulls’ No. 16 pick (Justin Patton) to Minnesota for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the No. 7 overall pick (Lauri Markkanen). A week later, Rajon Rondo was waived. With this swift move, Wade becomes the only Bulls player in the 30s.

Ready for the training camp

Like any other NBA veterans, Dwyane Wade has been rumored to be looking for another NBA title. The 35-years old former NBA Finals MVP (2006) downplayed any speculations about his intention suggesting that everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

Still, did not directly deny such rumors. What is clear is that the three-time NBA champion is looking forward to attending the Bulls training camp.

This only proves the emotion may have already subsided. Also, Dwyane Wade had shown his openness to dialogue with the Chicago Bulls organization. “Hopefully, we get an opportunity to sit down and talk about the direction and go from there.

I'm 35 years old. I'm a grown man. I can sit across the room from you and listen to your truth and hopefully (you) hear mine,” Wade said in an interview with Turner Sports’ David Aldridge.

Buyout imminent

Many game experts and analysts still believe that Wade won’t finish his career with the Bulls, much less end the season in Chicago.

The current Bulls 2-guard will turn 36 by January and if the Bulls are really into rebuilding the team, retaining Wade doesn’t seem fit.

Some believe the breakup between the Chicago Bulls and Dwyane Wade might happen even before training camp or at the very latest, the buyout deadline in February. One thing many believe is certain -- Wade will be wearing a different jersey other than the Bulls by the end of the 2017-18 NBA season.
