Dwyane Wade's Chicago homecoming may already be ending only a year after it started.
Wade, who grew up in Chicago, moved to the Bulls in free agency of last year after contract negotiations fell through between him and the Heat, a team he had led for the past 13 seasons. Wade joined forces with Jimmy Butler and Rajon Rondo in Chi-Town and managed to secure the eighth seed, falling to the Boston Celtics in the first round of the playoffs.
Now, with Butler traded to the Timberwolves, and Rondo moving on to New Orleans, Wade is the only star that remains on the Bulls' roster, and with the front office planning on a full rebuild, Wade has decided he wants no part in it.
News of Wade's buyout spread pretty quickly, and a former teammate of Wade's threw in his two cents.
It's plain as day to see Whiteside wouldn't mind seeing a Wade return to Miami, and who wouldn't?
The Heat were on the verge of making the playoffs last season after a dreadful start, losing in a tie-breaker to Wade's Bulls. With an improved roster consisting of Dion Waiters, James Johnson and Hassan himself, adding Wade back into the mix would definitely thrust Miami into the playoff picture.
The only question is, would Waiters be willing to give up his 'alpha dog' status he worked so hard for last season? Time will tell when Wade is most likely bought out in a few months and becomes a free agent.
