Following rumors that the Chicago Bulls intend to buy out the contract of shooting guard and three-time NBA champion Dwyane Wade, a return to the Miami Heat for the three-time champion has surfaced as a realistic option.
For Heat fans who are anticipating a Wade reunion in Miami, a positive sign increased the likelihood of that event occurring in the near future when WINZ radio host Andy Slater tweeted a surprising bit of news on Monday night.
I can officially confirm that Dwyane Wade's kids are back at school in S. Florida, no longer in Chicago.

This does not necessarily confirm Wade for a potential 14th season in a Heat uniform, but it wouldn’t make much sense for him to transfer his kids to a South Florida school and not play for the Heat.
Wade still owns a multi-million dollar mansion in Miami, a property that he chose not to sell despite his move to play for the Bulls.
Last season in Chicago, Wade averaged 18.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.4 steals per game in 60 regular season contests.
