Bulls Reach Buyout Agreement with Dwyane Wade

The Chicago Bulls and veteran guard Dwyane Wade have reportedly come to an agreement on a buyout, setting the stage for Wade to sign with another team in free agency. 

Since moving on from Rajon Rondo and Jimmy Butler during the summer, this has always been a likelihood. Chicago is going with the youth movement, and the 35-year-old Wade simply didn't fit into the equation. 

Despite his advanced age, Wade is coming off a 2016-17 campaign that saw him average 18.3 points, 4.5 rebound, 3.8 assist and shoot at a 46 percent eFG. 

As of right now, indications are that the Cleveland Cavaliers are front runners for Wade's services. Again, that's not much of a surprise. Him and LeBron James earned two titles as teammates with the Miami Heat. Cleveland is also looking for backcourt reinforcements after trading Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics for a package including Isaiah Thomas. 

This is a story to watch as training camps get going around the NBA this week. It will also have wide-ranging fantasy implications moving forward.
