Dwyane Wade, Bulls agree to buyout after one season

Chicago IL USA- The Chicago Bulls' Dwyane Wade during the final seconds of his team's 119-114 loss to the Atlanta Hawks at the United Center in Chicago on Wednesday Jan. 25 2017

According to multiple reports Sunday, Dwyane Wade has reached an agreement with the Bulls to buy out his contract.

Cleveland appears to be the front-runner of the four.

Wade, a 12-time All-Star with career averages of 23.3 points and 5.7 assists, averaged 18.3 points and 3.8 assists in 60 games playing in Chicago's backcourt last season.

In the decline phase of his career, Wade has struggled with efficiency. Wade can still play, and it is possible that the Cavaliers offer him a starting position, one of the only things they can offer him, being extremely tied up in money. For one, Wade in Cleveland would mark a reunion with his former Heat teammate LeBron James.

"I'm going to take tonight and some of tomorrow and speak to the teams or players that are on my list and go from there", Wade said. Though Wade remained a force with the Bulls, the superstart wants to get another championship before he retires. Like the Cavaliers, the Heat have a Wade-like player in new shooting guard Dion Waiters. In basketball terms, it probably makes the least sense.

Get a massive 7/2 on Manchester City to thrash Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace have no new injuries and could hand a start to defender Mamadou Sakho after he impressed in midweek. David Silva has scored four goals in six Premier League games for Manchester City against Crystal Palace .

The four million dollar question is what Wade's role in Miami would be.

Oklahoma City, which just acquired Wade's friend Carmelo Anthony in a trade, could also have interest, sources told Wojnarowski.

Derrick Rose and J.R. Smith will likely start the season in the backcourt, and there's no doubt about it, Jae Crowder will be seeing a lot of minutes too. The Spurs' ball movement has the best chance of maximizing Wade's ability as a cutter and would highlight his passing and decision-making in ways we haven't seen since the Big Three at its peak.

OKC is an interesting option on the court, if their ownership group is willing to eat a little more tax to make it happen (the Thunder would pay about $24 million, based on their current payroll).
