The Cavs Have Reportedly Traded For Bulls' Veteran Mike Dunleavy

The Cavs are benefitting from Dwyane Wade's decision to leave the Miami Heat for the Chicago Bulls. 

In order for Chicago to sign the three-time NBA champion, two veteran players with sizable contracts - Mike Dunleavy and Jose Calderon - need to be traded to make room for Wade's contract. He was reportedly seeking a deal worth $50 million.

According to multiple reports, Cleveland has a deal in place to trade for Dunleavy.

LeBron James has long been a fan of Dunleavy's game. 

The former Duke star was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2002 NBA Draft and has played for four different teams. He's been with Chicago since 2013, averaging 7 points and shooting 39 percent from the 3-point line for the Bulls last season. 

James attempted to recruit Dunleavy to the Cavs last offseason.
