Dwyane Wade Headed to the Chicago Bulls

Shockwaves were sent through the NBA last night when free agent Dwyane Wade chose to sign with the Chicago Bulls instead of re-signing with the Miami Heat, a team he spent 13 seasons with while also winning three NBA championships.

The Heat wanted to re-sign Wade and offered a two-year $40 million deal, but Wade wanted a two-year $50 million deal; his new contract with the Bulls is a two-year, $47.5 million deal.

Wade said, back in May, that the contract he would sign this summer would have to be one he is comfortable with.

For the Bulls, they gain a player who can add offense to a team that ranked near the bottom half of the league last season in points per game and field goal percentage.

For the Heat, they lose one of the franchise’s all-time best players and are left with a big void.
