Young Bulls players fed up with Dwyane Wade; buyout 'inevitable'


According to ESPN's Nick Friedell, younger players on the Bulls' roster "can't stand" Wade. Wade's kids attended school in Chicago a year ago. Wade chose his hometown Bulls over the Nuggets in 2016 but Denver's brass "really sold Wade" on their vision for the organization. For starters, Wade has always kept a house in Miami, and it's quite possible his sons simply missed the area where they were raised.

With a parting of the ways between the sides viewed as a foregone conclusion by many in the league sooner or later, Wade would like $20 million of his owed $23.8 million for 2017-'18 in a buyout, the Sun-Times' Joe Cowley reported Tuesday afternoon. He played 13 seasons for the Miami Heat, winning three NBA Final titles.

Before Wade rejoins the Heat or his buddy LeBron, however, he first needs to get bought out by the Bulls. Likewise, Wade shouldn't be expected to give up and cash to facilitate a buyout. That would be a concern coming into a crowded rotation in Denver but Wade's skill off the ball, which is becoming a prerequisite to play in the Nuggets' offense, would help him thrive next to Jokic.


As it turns out, however, Wade might not be getting all of that amount, and he might not even spend that much time with the Bulls this upcoming season.

Wade's a premier baseline cutter, something Harris, who was the first player in Denver to realize how to capitalize off of Jokic's vision and basketball IQ, developed into last season. Wade may consider coming off the bench in a Manu Ginobili-type role, but that seems like a longshot. LeBron, after all, is the de facto ball handler.

We'll have to wait and see what happens with Wade. While there have been rumors of his potential return to the Miami Heat after leaving the door open earlier this summer, talking to former longtime teammate Udonis Haslem and even switching his kids from a Chicago school to one in South Florida, his return is impeded by many factors.
