Cavs rumors: Belief is Dwyane Wade will sign with Cleveland

On Sunday night, the 12-time All-Star agreed to a buyout with the Chicago Bulls, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Brian Windhorst. Already, numerous league's best teams have been mentioned as possible destinations, with ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Brian Windhorst reporting that the Cleveland Cavaliers are front-runners to sign Wade, with the Miami Heat, Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs also possible options. KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reported about the agreement on the buyout.

Wade averaged 18.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists in 60 games with the Bulls last season. The now-Thunder star will try to bring Wade down to his new city with him. With Rose injury-prone and Isaiah Thomas out for a while, the Cavaliers could lure Wade with an enticing role to lead the championship-caliber team. Though Wade remained a force with the Bulls, the superstart wants to get another championship before he retires. However, the Lakers may not be Wade's priority list but the organization might be able to convince him to play alongside rookie Lonzo Ball.

But there's a bigger problem with the idea of Wade going to Cleveland: He's a bad fit, not only for their team's roster but also in a direct matchup with the Cavs' biggest obstacle to a championship.

Sigmar Gabriel calls for 'pressure and dialogue' to deal with North Korea
Germany's foreign minister is calling for direct talks with North Korea in the standoff over its nuclear and missile programs. South Korea suspended humanitarian aid to North Korea after the country conducted its fourth nuclear test in January 2016.

After trading two players for Anthony, Oklahoma City has a roster spot open. Wade recently worked out with James, his former teammate with the Miami Heat. Miami Heat? Cleveland Cavaliers?

The reason it seems unlikely to happen, though, are the draws of playing with either Paul or James in similarly needy situations with Houston or Cleveland.

Dwyane Wade is the last household name standing in the Bulls' locker room, but it sounds like he will be gone from Chicago before the regular season tips off.
