Report: Miami, Los Angeles appealing destinations for Bulls' Dwyane Wade

It seems to be a matter of when, not if, Dwyane Wade will be bought out by the Chicago Bulls.

The 33-year-old isn't a part of the Bulls' rebuilding process, and he seems more likely to want to play for a contender in the tail end of his Hall of Fame career.

When that initial report came out that the Bulls were considering buying him out, Hassan Whiteside said the Heat would love to have him back.

Someone in LeBron James' camp reportedly said they expect Wade to become a member of the Cavaliers at some point in the season, which makes sense because of what James and Wade accomplished in Miami.

Well, add another potential destination to the list: Los Angeles.

Miami Herald's Barry Jackson is reporting that Los Angeles is appealing to Wade, for obvious reasons given Wade's affinity to continue pushing and improving his own brand.

Jackson does not specify whether it'd be the Lakers or Clippers that Wade is interested in joining. James has been linked to the Lakers for quite some time and is a free agent next offseason. The Clippers have moved on from Chris Paul but still figure to make noise in the Western Conference this season.

While he doesn't seem long for Chicago, Wade is going to have his fair share of suitors awaiting him once he clears waivers.
