There could be a big name hitting the NBA free agent market, as a new report from ESPN has the Bulls looking to part ways with 12-time All-Star Dwyane Wade.
Dwyane Wade isn't expected to be long for the organization's future, as nobody would be surprised if he decided not to stick around for a season in the tank and instead chooses to reach a buyout agreement at some point in the next few months.
Bulls GM Gar Forman said at the Las Vegas Summer League that he hasn't had any discussions with Wade's representatives about a potential buyout, but the widespread belief within the organization is that a deal that would allow Wade to play elsewhere will eventually get worked out at some point during the season.
Wade signed with his hometown Bulls last summer and he opted in for $23.8 million this upcoming season. But as Chicago goes through a rebuild, it might best for both sides to move on. Wade is 35 and only has so much time left in the NBA. Does he really want to take his lumps on one of the worst teams in the league?
If he is cut loose, Wade would be an intriguing option for contenders with some money to spend.
