HEAT Acquire Dwyane Wade

NBA trade deadline Cavaliers trade Dwyane Wade back to Heat report says

The experiment that was"Peanut Butter and Jelly 2017-18 has come to an end as Dwyane Wade reportedly is on his way back

"For me, I'm at the point where you get this high up in years played in the National Basketball Association, you kind of take the summer to think about what you want as a player and go from there".

The team acquired George Hill from the Kings, Rodney Hood from the Jazz and Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance, Jr. from the Lakers. Going out of Cleveland are players like Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye, Jae Crowder, Derrick Rose and Dwyane Wade.

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

Wojnarowski said the Heat will send a heavily protected second-round pick to Cleveland in exchange.

The trade comes hours before the NBA's 3 p.m. trade deadline.


A person with direct knowledge of the trades says the Cleveland Cavaliers have overhauled their roster with three deals, including one that sends Dwyane Wade back to Miami. Wade, his representative and LeBron James were reportedly consulted. 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.

Then, on Thursday, things came full circle when the Cavs traded him back to Miami. All of us embrace it in the manner that we want to win and that's why we brought Dwyane back home.

Cleveland sits in third place in the East at 31-22.

With six-year veteran shooting guard Dion Waiters out for the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery to fix a lingering ankle injury, Wade will nearly immediately bring life back to the Miami Heat, whose light has dimmed out after a hot start to the season.
