In a historic NBA Free Agency move, the face of the Miami Heat franchise has left for the Chicago Bulls. Dwyane Wade has reportedly agreed to a 2-year, $47 million deal with his hometown Bulls.
Wade’s Heat resume includes 12 All-Star appearances, 3 NBA Championships, an NBA scoring title and a Finals MVP. Stay tuned for more on this deal. This move will make the Bulls perimeter as scary as it’s ever been, with Wade and Rondo in the backcourt and Jimmy Butler moving to the small forward spot. Via Yahoo Sports:
After 13 historic seasons and three NBA championships with the Miami Heat, Dwyane Wade has informed the Chicago Bulls he plans to sign a deal with them, league sources told The Vertical.
Wade plans to return to his childhood home, where he idolized Bulls icon Michael Jordan as a young boy and moved on to become an All-American at Marquette and a 12-time NBA All-Star with Miami.
Wade joins a reshaped Bulls lineup that will include Rajon Rondo at point guard and necessitate the move of All-Star shooting guard Jimmy Butler to small forward.
