This comes just two days after the Miami Heat, his team of 13 years, offered him a two-year, $40 million contract. After meeting with Heat owner Micky Arison on Monday in New York, Wade has decided to follow in his best friend LeBron James' footsteps in going home. Arison took to Twitter to thank Wade for his time with the team.
The talks with the Bulls heated up late Wednesday night, as the team was reportedly looking to trade players to make cap room for the deal. They did send Jose Calderon to the Lakers and Mike Dunleavy to the Cavaliers in the process. Sources say that Jimmy Butler also helped out by calling and recruiting the veteran.
The largest offer for Wade came from the Denver Nuggets, who offered $52 million over two years. Wade also considered the Bucks, Cavaliers, and even returning to Miami. But those close to Wade have said that if he were to leave Miami, it would only be for his hometown Bulls.
