Report: NBA Insider Reveals Why Dwyane Wade Choosing Cavs Over Heat
- Updated: September 26, 2017
On Tuesday morning, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Dwyane Wade is nearing a commitment to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers. While the Miami Heat had been considered a favorite to sign Wade, Wojnarowski wrote that Wade saw Cleveland as a more attractive destination for one specific reason.
Wojnarowski explained why Wade is expected to choose Cleveland over his former team:
“Wade had considered the Oklahoma City Thunder, San Antonio Spurs and Heat, league sources said. Wade hasn’t ruled out the idea of a future return to Miami, but his desire to join a contender overtook the sentiment of a Heat reunion, league sources said. Wade has reconciled his Miami relationships after a difficult free agent parting in 2016, sources said.”
It is promising to hear that Wade and the Heat have been able to reconcile their differences, but it seems like it might be too late to convince Wade to choose Miami over Cleveland.
It’s hard to deny that Cleveland is in a better position than the Heat to contend for a championship this season. Still, it would have been special to see Wade help the Heat reach the playoffs this season as opposed to an Eastern Conference rival.
