Cleveland Cavaliers trade Wade to Miami, LeBron says goodbye on Instagram

Cleveland Cavaliers trade Wade to Miami, LeBron says goodbye on Instagram

The Cleveland Cavaliers have absolutely no chill. Jordan Clarkson, George Hill and Rodney Hood. It remains to be seen how much he'll play for head coach Erik Spoelstra, but the absence of Dion Waiters, who recently underwent season-ending surgery, could allow Wade to play a role in Miami vaguely similar to the one he did in Cleveland. In the end, they sent out a bevy of players that included Isaiah Thomas, Iman Shumpert, Channing Frye, Derrick Rose and Jae Crowder. Much like he did with the Chicago Bulls, Wade wanted to help lead a team back to the NBA Finals again. In order to get younger, the Cavaliers made a huge move by sending LeBron James' close friend and former championship teammate #Dwyane Wade back to the #Miami Heat.

"You're kidding me! He's a Heat Lifer", Dragic said.

LeBron James endorsed the trade on Instagram on Thursday, saying he was happy for Wade.

Wade, who turned 36 on January 17, acknowledged last week that he would be lying if he said he had not thought about closing out his career in a Heat jersey.




Welcome back, Dwyane Wade.

The NBA trade deadline is 3 p.m. Thursday. Still it seems clear there will be room for Wade to contribute to the team as they push for the playoffs this season.

Cleveland sits in third place in the East at 31-22. He ultimately chose to reunite with LeBron James on a one-year deal with Cleveland, but has been part of a Cavs team that has struggled to find consistency this season. Consumed by by a feeling of disappointment and under-appreciation, Wade closed out his 13-year chapter with the organization that had drafted him fifth overall in the 2003 NBA Draft.
