Dwyane Wade on why he exercised his player option: ’24 million reasons’
Dwyane Wade said he wanted to see the Bulls’ direction – winning now with Jimmy Butler or rebuilding? – before deciding on his $23.8 million player option for next season.
David Aldridge of NBA.com:
Asked Dwyane Wade tonight why he opted in with Chicago for 2017-18: "24 million reasons."— David Aldridge (@davidaldridgedc) June 21, 2017
This is most real answer answer you’ll ever see. Props to Wade for his directness.
This also speaks to the unlikelihood of him accepting a buyout, no matter how poorly he fits with the rebuilding Bulls now – though maybe he’d accept a small pay cut to choose another team.
