Dwyane Wade is heading home. The future Hall of Famer has been traded back to the Miami Heat by the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to a report by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

This continues a complete makeover of the Cavaliers' roster. All on Thursday they traded Wade, Derrick Rose, Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye, Jae Crowder, Iman Shumpert and their 2018 first round pick. In multiple deals, the Cavs have brought in Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance, Jr., George Hill and Rodney Hood.
Wade is the biggest name of all, but just one of many getting shipped out of Cleveland. He now returns to Miami where he played the first 13 years of his career and won three championships.
The Cavs trading Wade at this point is surprising, but cleary they felt a major shakeup was required. By getting Clarkson, Hill and Hood, they should be set at shooting guard and with much younger options than Wade.
What a fascinating day of NBA trade deadline deals.
