Dwyane Wade is going home, according to a report by Yahoo! Sports’ The Vertical.
According to the report, the now-former Miami Heat star has told the Chicago Bulls he plans to sign a contract with them. Wade was reportedly seeking a two-year deal worth $50 million contract.
In order to sign the three-time NBA champion, the Bulls need to clear some cap space. They’ll be doing that by moving two veteran players.
According to multiple reports, Chicago has trade partners for Mike Dunleavy and Jose Calderon.
