HoopsHype Dwyane Wade rumors

July 23, 2014 Updates

LeBron adviser Maverick Carter, via Real Talk with Jason Whitlock: LeBron and D-Wade are totally fine, speak almost daily or every other day. They’re totally fine. They’ll be friends for life. Their friendship goes beyond basketball and is bigger than basketball, so they’ll be friends for life. NBCSports.com

Dwyane Wade & Brandon Marshall Sports Academy & Cheerleading Skills Camp is a thing that exists. Who knew? Anyway, Wade and Marshall gave a sort of press conference at their sports academy and Wade took the opportunity to tell a story about a kid at once of his basketball camps. Apparently, in front of a large group of campers, the child asked Wade why he flops. Wade laughed as he told the story, but deep down I bet he feels bad about every time an NBA player flops because it is such a bad example for the kids. That’s how this kind of thing happens.

Sources say it's possible Wade's looming deal with the Heat might not be finalized until next week while negotiations with Deng continue. But Miami's current aim is assembling a core that features Wade and Bosh with newcomer Josh McRoberts and Deng if they can complete a deal with the former Chicago Bulls All-Star. ESPN.com

Dwyane Wade: "As a friend and a teammate, I am sad to see my brother LeBron leave to begin a new journey. In 2010, we decided to come together all for one goal - to win championships and we succeeded. We were friends when we first joined the league and created an unbreakable bond the past four years. Our collaboration will always be very special to me both personally and professionally. We shared something unique and he will always be part of my family. LeBron made the right decision for himself and his family because home is where your heart is. I know this was not an easy decision to make and I support him in returning to his roots. As an organization, a community, and as individuals we achieved the goals we set when we first signed on together. We are champions." Hot Hot Hoops

The Rockets, sources say, also pursued free agent Luol Deng but appear to have fallen out of contention for the former All-Star, with Miami said to be making progress in its recruitment of Deng after losing LeBron James on Friday. ESPN.com

The Chicago Bulls are one of the teams that reached out to the veteran guard, but Stephen A. Smith of ESPN has said that there is another team gauging interest in D-Wade. According to Smith on Friday night’s SportsCenter, the Dallas Mavericks have reached out to Wade. FanSided
