Bulls chairman Jerry Reinsdorf believes Dwyane Wade will be an invaluable addition to the team.
"It's a tremendous addition," Reinsdorf said. "Not only as a player but to our culture. Right off the bat, he wanted to know what he could do in the community. He has his own plans. So does Rajon [Rondo]. These guys are going to be a real plus." We still think it will take some time for the kinks to be worked out between Wade, Rondo and Jimmy Butler, but there's no question Chicago will be a fascinating team to watch. Sep 10 - 2:38 PM

Dwyane Wade said his decision to leave Miami wasn't just about money.

"Last year I wanted more money — just to be real; I got more money," Wade said. "This year, the direction and the focus for that organization in Miami — which I have nothing but love and respect for — was a little different than it has been in years past." Wade added that playing in Chicago has always been a dream of his, but he was noncommittal about whether Chicago would be his final NBA stop -- he has a player option for the second year of his deal. Wade's usage rate and minutes will likely drop in his age-34 season.

Dwyane Wade said the Bulls are "Jimmy Butler's team."

"This wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for Jimmy Butler," Wade said. He said he's just going to play his game, so it doesn't sound like he'll be adding many 3-pointers to his arsenal. Wade ranked in the top five for usage rate among qualifiers in the last two years, so it'll be interesting to see how the shots are distributed in the Chicago offense. Wade will be a risky mid-round pick.

Dwyane Wade recently expressed appreciation for his tenure in Miami.

"There’s a lot of things that’s going to be said, that has been said, but at the end of the day I’m just thankful," Wade said. "I’m thankful for the love, the opportunity that I’ve had in this city for 13 years to just create some unbelievable magic. That goes nowhere. That will be something that we will all have in common for many, many years down the line." While Wade also dismissed the notion that there was tension between he and Pat Riley, it's hard to believe it's all love after the way business went down.

Pat Riley said Dwyane Wade's departure to the Bulls makes this a tough offseason for the Heat.

While there are reports that Riley didn't call Wade during the free agency process, the Heat president expressed sadness in seeing D-Wade leave for the Bulls. "Ten years ago," Riley wrote in a text to Dan LeBetard of the Miami Herald. "Ten years older. Ten years wiser. Ten years changed. All of us. Dwyane had a choice, and he made it. He went home. Bad, bad summer for us." While the 34-year-old still has something left in the tank, he's bound to see his usage rate (and fantasy value) drop in Chicago.
Jul 7 - 10:20 AM

Dwyane Wade has agreed to a two-year, $47.5 million deal with the Chicago Bulls.

Wade's stunning decision to return to his home town of Chicago, spurning the franchise he spent 13 years with while winning three championships, reportedly stemmed from acrimonious free agent negotiations with Pat Riley and the Heat. The Bucks and Nuggets were also pursuing him but he wasn't able to secure a guaranteed third season in any scenario, so he opted for a two-year deal with a player option in the second year. Chicago's rebuilt lineup will presumably start Rajon Rondo, Wade, Jimmy Butler, Taj Gibson and Robin Lopez, but they'll need to fill out the bench after trading Mike Dunleavy and Jose Calderon to clear salary cap space. Wade's gaudy usage rate is sure to fall in Chicago, bumping him down a round or two for fantasy purposes.
Jul 6 - 10:16 PM

Dwyane Wade has reportedly agreed to sign with the Bulls, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Chicago has been shopping Jose Calderon and Mike Dunleavy to shed salaries, but they could also waive Calderon and use the 'stretch provision' to clear significant cap space. The Bulls' interest in Wade is two-fold, according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, as they hope to be more competitive this season while also luring max-level free agents in 2017. Wade is from Chicago and it sounds like he's heading home after spending 13 seasons with the Heat, the only franchise he's played for since entering the NBA in 2003.
Jul 6 - 9:22 PM

Dwyane Wade is reportedly "pushing for a resolution on his future" by Wednesday evening.

The Heat, Bulls and Nuggets are in the mix for Wade, who is scheduled to co-host "Live with Kelly" on Thursday morning. Pat Riley is also reportedly eager for Wade to choose a team on Wednesday, so we shouldn't have to wait long for his decision. If he opts to sign with Chicago, the Bulls will likely have to shed a few contracts to take on his anticipated salary.
Jul 6 - 8:57 PM

The Bulls have been calling teams in an effort to unload contracts and clear cap space for Dwyane Wade, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Mike Dunleavy and Jose Calderon are likely suspects to be unloaded, according to Woj. The Heat are also reportedly hoping to deal Josh McRoberts, but they'd need to sweeten the deal with draft picks or young talent, and the Nuggets are currently the only team with enough cap space to meet Wade's expected salary demands. Miami has long been seen as the inevitable victor in the D-Wade sweepstakes, but things are getting very interesting.
Jul 6 - 7:19 PM

The Bulls remain "significantly involved" in a Dwyane Wade pursuit, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

The Bulls had to cancel their meeting with Wade due to flight issues, but Woj adds that had "no bearing" on their status. Additionally, C.F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel adds the Bucks are not expected to get Wade. He was expected to make his decision tonight, but the Bulls being serious suggests we might not hear a decision until tomorrow.
Jul 6 - 5:29 PM

Dwyane Wade's meeting with Heat owner Micky Arison has ended.

Presumably, it went well. There is still no reported deal on Wade, who is meeting with the Bucks and Nuggets today. He was expected to meet with the Bulls, but flight complications caused a cancellation. The 12-time All-Star is expected to make a decision today, but it might not happen if he's seriously interested in the Bulls. He's looking for a two-year, $50 million deal.
Jul 6 - 4:43 PM

The Bulls canceled their meeting with Dwyane Wade due to Wade's flight getting pushed back.

The Bulls could wind up traveling to meet wit him on Thursday. Wade is expected to make his decision today, but this new development may change it. If he is seriously considering the Bulls, we might not get word until tomorrow. It would be a very weird fit with the Bulls looking to rebuild.
Jul 6 - 2:42 PM

Dwyane Wade's free agent decision could come as soon as Wednesday night, sources told Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

Wade is meeting with three rival teams (Denver, Chicago, Milwaukee) as well as the Heatl. The non-Miami teams are putting on the full court press in their recruitment of the shooting guard, but it's still to be determined if it will all be for nothing. The good news is we should have our answer soon.
Jul 6 - 12:31 PM

Dwyane Wade has multiple free agent meetings set for Wednesday in New York.

CF Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Wade's meeting with the Bucks is back on, while Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical previously reported that Denver will come armed with a two-year, $52 million contract and the Bulls are now also expected to meet with the shooting guard. Per Woj, "the possibility of a guaranteed third-year on [Wade's] contract has emerged as a priority," and sources told Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders that Miami will get a meeting with Wade, as well. According to Wojnarowski, the "closest" Wade has to a three-year deal is Chicago's offer of a partial guarantee in Year 3 with the Nuggets, Bucks & Heat all offering two years with no mention of the Cavs. And per beat writer Ira Winderman, Miami's offer includes a player option after Year 1. Although it still seems like Wade is angling for leverage in Miami, it also feels as if there is a possibility for the franchise face to move on.
Jul 6 - 9:23 AM

Dwyane Wade will meet with the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday.

This comes on the heels of a report from ESPN's Marc Stein that the Nuggets are offering Wade a two-year deal north of $50 million. The Heat are still the favorites to re-sign Wade, but it's worth noting that they're only offering a two-year deal worth around $40 million.
