Cleveland Cavaliers send Dwyane Wade back to Miami Heat

  • LeBron James and Dwayne Wade

The #Cleveland Cavaliers just blew up their entire roster, trading nearly all their backcourt players and bringing in fresh talent to help them make a push to the NBA Finals. Wade, who came to Cleveland to win a championship, might not envision that happening. In the end, they sent out a bevy of players that included Isaiah Thomas, Iman Shumpert, Channing Frye, Derrick Rose and Jae Crowder.

Cleveland has been intent in acquiring as many young assets, as they have been by far the oldest team in the league.

Basically: Wade wanted this.

The return of Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade to the team where he spent the first 13 years of his career became official on Thursday, when the Cleveland Cavaliers sent the veteran to Miami in exchange for a protected second-round pick. Shelburne reported on Thursday that Cavs GM Koby Altman consulted with James before the trade, making sure he understood why they were doing the deal.

DC mayor's office says Trump must foot bill for military parade
Funds for a parade could drain resources that could have otherwise been allocated for the military's other needs. Bush held a military parade in Washington on June 8, 1991, to mark victory in the Persian Gulf War.

The Cavs coaching staff was considering reducing Dwyane Wade's playing time and he's been agitating for a return "home" to Miami in the future, sources said.

After a tumultuous offseason in 2016 in which James spurned Miami for Cleveland, Wade also left the Heat to sign with his hometown Chicago Bulls.

Welcome back, Dwyane Wade. However, Wade played well in wine and gold after a rocky start, eventually settling into his role coming off the bench and acting as a primary ball handler in second units.

Isaiah Thomas went from a team expected to compete for the National Basketball Association title to a team that is 22-31 and has little chance of competing at all this season.
