In a stunning announcement, LeBron James returned home to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday.
Like King James, Chris Bosh, a Dallas native, might be heading to his home state too, if he accepts the Houston Rockets max four-year, $88 million offer.
That would leave Dwyane Wade as the final member the Big Three in Miami. But now that too is in jeopardy.
According to a report, once James’s announcement became official, the Chicago Bulls began to gauge interest in Wade, a Chi-town native.
The move would make sense, considering Wade opted out of the final two years and $41.8 million owed to him with the Heat. A move to Chicago would not only allow him to play for his home city, but team with Derrick Rose who is also from the Chi.
In addition, if Miami can’t hold on to Bosh, the way it couldn’t keep James, then Wade perhaps would be more prone to leave too.
Despite disappearing in key moments during the 2014 NBA Finals, D. Wade was pretty solid during the regular season. The three-time NBA champion posted averages of 19.4 points, 4.7 assists, and 4.5 rebounds per game.
That said, Wade can provide scoring for the Bulls, who were dead last in points per game (93.7) this past season. In addition, they have money to spend and Wade is probably looking to recoup some of the cash he lost out on in Miami.
This could actually work.
