This NBA season has been very exciting and many teams have surprised their fans, in both positive and negative ways. One of the rather disappointing teams this season is Cleveland who just can't get things going the right way. The Cavaliers have struggled this season and at the moment, they are only a single game ahead of the fifth-seeded Washington Wizards.

Considering that the Cavaliers want to win a championship, anything less than a ring will be considered a failure. It was obvious that something had to be done in terms of a roster change, but no one could have predicted that the Cavaliers would make multiple big trades just a few hours before the deadline.

In a surprising turn of events, Cleveland traded Dwyane Wade, LeBron James' best friend, to the Miami Heat.

D-Wade is back!

Back in 2016, many Miami Heat fans were heartbroken when Dwyane Wade decided to leave the team. Wade didn't agree to a new deal with the Heat, and it seemed there were some problems between him and the front office, which is why he decided to join his hometown team, the Chicago Bulls.

After barely making the playoffs in Chicago, Wade was eliminated in the first round by the Boston Celtics, despite having a 2-0 lead in the series. It was obvious that the situation in Chicago wasn't good, so the Bulls decided to buy Wade's contract out, making him a free agent and allowing him to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

As it turned out, Dwyane Wade had to change another team as he was traded back to the Heat on February 8, just a few hours before the trade deadline. In return for the veteran shooting guard, the Cavaliers received a heavily protected 2024 second-round draft pick. At the end of the day, the Heat lost nothing, yet they got the best player in the franchise history back.

Not a bad trade for Miami!

Wade's message

Last night, the Miami Heat shooting guard posted a video on his Twitter account, thanking the Heat for bringing him back, as well as saying a few words about his former team, the Cleveland Cavaliers. Dwyane Wade seems excited to be back to Miami and to continue his career in the same city where his rise to the stardom began.

The Miami Heat will play their next game at home on February 9. They will be matched up against the Milwaukee Bucks, and there is a good chance that Wade plays in this game. It's still unknown what his role on the team will be, but it won't be surprising if the Heat decide to keep him on the bench.
