Dwyane Wade agrees to one-year deal with Cavaliers

Well, that was fast. Less than 72 hours after agreeing to a buyout with the Chicago Bulls, guard Dwyane Wade has reportedly agreed to a one-year, $2.3 million contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The deal will serve to reunite Wade, 35, with former teammate and long-time friend LeBron James, a player who was said to be instrumental in the deal. Wade reportedly received interest from the San Antonio Spurs, Miami Heat, and Oklahoma City Thunder, but agreed to take the veteran’s minimum in Cleveland. It is expected the team will part with either forward Richard Jefferson or guard Jose Calderon to make room for Wade in the event a trade cannot be made to open the necessary roster space.

“I’m all for having more players, more depth, more dogs – guys that want to prove themselves,” said Tristan Thompson following Tuesday’s practice. “Definitely welcome him with open arms and if does show up I’ll tell him he was late for Media Day and give him some shit about it.”

Wade averaged 18 points per game for the Bulls last season, averaging 23.3 points, 5.7 assists and 4.8 rebounds per game over his career.

    And here I was thinking that all of the old Ohioans moved to Florida, not vice-versa.

    See – 12 months off, but we were right!

    Part of the deal was unlimited use of Gilbert’s private jet to fly into Cleveland in time for the shoot-around, and directly to Miami (Or Vegas, or the Bahamas…) immediately following the final buzzer.

    Wade can definitely play some really good NBA minutes. We don’t need him to be the player he was a decade ago.

    With LBJ, Love, Oompa Loompa, etc on the team he won’t have to be.
    Same goes for Rose.

    Don’t see how this can be anything but a positive. He knows exactly how to work with LeBron on the floor, knows how to make a pressure play, and he still has the cajones to pull one off even if he can no longer take over a game. I’d rather they ditch Calderon than Jefferson (not a Calderon fan) but regardless, this team is all about taking another shot at a title. Even an old Wade can help a lot in June.

    Meh. Saint Griffin woulda got Wade earlier if he was still in place!

    In all seriousness now, can we safely say our collective freak out over the Cavs was entirely overblown? Even if we cannot bring ourselves to admit that, I hope we can look at how nicely the roster is shaping up, particularly our bench. We are positioned as well as could be hoped.

    I think the Cavs off-season was a tale of two halves. The first half was “Omg we’re in trouble!” The second half was “Oh wait we have LeBron still and made solid moves.”
