HoopsHype Dwyane Wade rumors

July 11, 2014 Updates

The Chicago Bulls are interested in discussing a deal with free-agent guard Dwyane Wade, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The crumbling of the Miami Heat's Big Three on Friday leaves Wade facing a future without LeBron James and Chris Bosh in Miami, and a Heat franchise facing a rebuilding situation again. Yahoo! Sports

A source confirmed that Wade also accompanied James on the flight back to Miami on Thursday night. James and his agent, Rich Paul, met with Heat officials for more than an hour Wednesday afternoon in Las Vegas, sources told ESPN.com. The Heat were represented by team president Pat Riley and general manager Andy Elisburg. ESPN.com

Tim Reynolds: Filed to AP: LeBron James and Dwyane Wade worked out in Vegas today, before James took meetings in an upscale hotel. Twitter @ByTimReynolds

Joe Kotoch: Riley wants Wade in Vegas & in the meeting w/ LeBron but potential to backfire too. He knows Wade can't stay healthy & will still carry him. For all those dismissing possibility of LeBron leaving remember he said he didn't need to meet w/ Heat before making a decision. Twitter @Probballdraft

If Miami was going this over-the-cap route all along, it could have asked LeBron, Wade, and Bosh to simply opt into their contracts, saving us the drama of tracking Dan Gilbert’s private plane and Savannah Brinson’s Instagram account. But it asked for the opt-outs anyway, and it did so to save money. Here’s why: The new CBA includes an “apron” that is slotted $4 million above the tax line, which is projected at about $77 million for next season. Grantland
