Dwyane Wade Sends Emotional Farewell Message to Tyler Johnson and Wayne Ellington

1 Min Read

Tyler Johnson and Wayne Ellington said farewell to South Florida on Wednesday when the Miami Heat traded them away prior to Thursday’s trade deadline.

While the NBA is undoubtedly a business first, Dwyane Wade took to Twitter to remind his former teammates that there’s a lot of heart in the league as well.

He first took to Twitter to wish Johnson good luck going forward.

Moment later, when it was announced that Ellington had also been traded, he tweeted to let Ellington know that he can always depend on him.

It’s sad to say goodbye to both Johnson and Ellington, but it may be for the best. The Heat are currently loaded at the backcourt positions, and a new scenery will give both players opportunities to carve out increased roles in their new home.

For the Heat, parting ways with both players has freed up some much-needed cap space and could help them make free-agent signings in the future.

Whatever happens, it seems clear that Wade will always be there for them if they need to consult their legendary former teammate.
