Dwyane Wade Reportedly Expected To Join LeBron In Cleveland

Rumors have speculated that Dwyane Wade will soon be a member of the already stacked Cleveland Cavaliers.

Even though Wade was the second-leading scorer for the Bulls last season, the team is undergoing a youth movement and Chicago's roster is deep with shooting guard talent. The possibility was discussed on the Cleveland Plain Dealer's "Wine and Gold Talk Podcast", with Joe Vardon of the Plain Dealer saying that people close to James were confident that at some point Wade would be a Cavalier.

There's an terrible lot at play here, beginning with Wade's decision earlier this summer to opt into the final year of his contract that will pay him $23.8 million.

Either way, it looks as thought Dwyane Wade's days in his hometown of Chicago are over. That would be a concern coming into a crowded rotation in Denver but Wade's skill off the ball, which is becoming a prerequisite to play in the Nuggets' offense, would help him thrive next to Jokic.

And given the fact that Wade's contract will be expiring after the 2017-18 season, he could make for a quality piece to use in trades down the line. Miami is set in the backcourt, with Goran Dragic and Dion Waiters developing a chemistry last season that never materialized between Dragic and Wade.

Eclipse-watching? You may see clouds instead
Through the end of the week, rain chances will increase as another cool front swings in from the Great Plains by mid-week. Thursday and Friday we'll see temperatures in the lower 80's with overnight lows just ten degrees above freezing.

Perhaps the biggest trade of the National Basketball Association season - if not one of the tops of the last decade - didn't go unnoitced by the leader of the Chicago Bulls. Wade possesses all of those qualities.

If Wade comes to Denver, it will largely be because of the relationship he established with the organization during last summer's recruitment period.

However, it's likely that Wade would weigh his options. A closing lineup of Wade, Harris, Chandler, Millsap, and Jokic is experienced, versatile, and solid defensively.

Wherever he lands, it will mark the end of a homecoming that neither Wade nor the Bulls expected to end this way.

Wade will ultimately have to decide what type of role he wants if he's bought out in Chicago, but Denver, with their history of engagement with Wade, could be a logical landing spot.
