Dwyane Wade To Sign With The Bulls
It looks like D. Wade may be taking a page out of LeBron James‘ book by becoming a hometown hero.
“He’s home,” one source close to Wade said of the Chicago native.
The Bulls had been gaining momentum on landing Wade and believed they had a trade partner willing to take on Jose Calderon to clear salary-cap space, sources told ESPN.com.
Wade, a Chicago area native, and the Bulls entered serious negotiations late Wednesday after he held free agent meetings during the day with several teams, sources said.
The Bulls ramped up efforts to clear needed space to give Wade the multiyear deal he has been seeking.
The Brooklyn Nets emerged as a potential trade destination for Calderon, sources said.
The Miami Heat have a two-year, $40 million offer on the table for Wade. But there has been extreme acrimony building between the sides over the last week. Wade met with Heat owner Micky Arison in New York Monday.
