LeBron James is gone. Chris Bosh is about to follow him out the door. At least the Miami Heat aren’t losing the most beloved player in franchise history, too, right?
Oops, hold on …
With two-thirds of the so-called “Big Three” departing, Dwyane Wade might be looking for a new home as well. The Chicago Bulls already are “gauging interest” in bringing the free-agent guard home, Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski reported Friday, citing league sources.
Wade, Bosh and James all opted out of their contracts with the Heat this summer, making them unrestricted free agents. James announced his intentions to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers, followed shortly by Bosh reportedly getting close to signing with the Houston Rockets.
Wade, the only member of the star-studded trio to be drafted by the Heat, was born in Chicago and attended high school in nearby Oak Lawn, Ill. He’s also one of just two players (along with Udonis Haslem) to win three NBA championships with Miami, having led the Heat to the 2006 title before James and Bosh’s arrival.
