Fantasy Slant: Dwyane Wade Nearing Deal with the Cavaliers

Bought out by the Chicago Bulls over the weekend, impending free agent Dwyane Wade is reportedly nearing a deal to reunited with LeBron James in Cleveland. Once Wade clears waivers on Wednesday, the expectation here is that he will sign with the Cavaliers. 

In no way should this be considered a surprise. Cleveland was always going to be the front runner for Wade's services if the Bulls did decide to buy him out. 

And while teams such as the San Antonio Spurs, Oklahoma City Thunder and Golden State Warriors put calls in, Wade is a perfect fit in Cleveland. 

He will likely start at the two-guard next to the recently acquired Isaiah Thomas, forming a stellar backcourt for the three-time defending Eastern Conference champs. 

Wade, 35, averaged 18.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists for the Bulls last season. His addition will obviously limit minutes for Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith, one of which could potentially be traded between now and the start of the regular season. That's only magnified with another wing in Jae Crowder being added to the mix in the Thomas, Kyrie Irving trade.
