The chatter that Dwyane Wade would be leaving his hometown team Chicago Bulls to rejoin with his former Miami Heat co-star LeBron James was yet another unexpected twist in the upcoming NBA season. Wade will be joining the team for a 1-year deal so far, and Twitter is going absolutely nuts over the news.
Twelve-time NBA All-Star guard Dwyane Wade plans to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers once he clears waivers on Wednesday, league sources told ESPN.
Wade, who agreed to a contract buyout with the Chicago Bulls on Sunday, will be an unrestricted free agent and sign a one-year, $2.3 million veterans minimum deal to reunite with LeBron James, league sources said.
Wade’s relationship with James, cemented over four seasons and two NBA titles together with the Miami Heat, pushed the Cavaliers past the Oklahoma City Thunder, San Antonio Spurs and Miami in pursuit of Wade.
With newly-dealt guard Isiah Thomas dealing with an injury that will have him sidelined until January, it appears that Wade would be manning the point guard position in the role. We checked out some of the reaction on Twitter and it’s been glorious so far. Check out some of the tweets below and on the following pages.
