After Signing Wade, Just Call them the Cavaliers All-Star
Dwyane Wade has reached agreement to a one-year, $2.3M deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers (via The Vertical).
Dwyane Wade joining his buddy in Cleveland Cavaliers is nothing but expected, but why does it feel like it's still a surprise? Maybe because we were somewhat hoping that he would follow Carmelo and continue the streak of OKC in signing superstars lately, either way, the news would still make a splash and put a dent in the NBA Universe.
Dwyane Wade at 36 years old is still considered as a top caliber basketball player.
Last year, he averaged 18 points on 43% shooting and have been a scorer all of his years in the NBA.
Recently, he made it clear that if Bulls will buy out his contract, he will only sign with the team that can compete for the Championship as well as be a significant part of the rotation, he did not, however, explain that the team should consist of a LeBron James so that other teams would have not wasted time in convincing him for nothing.
Dwyane Wade accepted a discounted payment of only 2.3 million, same way as other veterans chasing for a ring who recently joined the team in the past and recently, one example of that is Derrick Rose.
Both players have spent some time together when LeBron James joined Dwyane Wade in Miami and now Dwyane is joining LeBron in Cleveland.
The inclusion of Wade added another all-star guard into an already stacked lineup that includes JR Smith, Kyle Korver, and Iman Shumpert.
