Dwayne Wade has signed a $2.3 million 1-year contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers after reaching a buyout from the Chicago Bulls. Wade is set to clear waivers today and join the Cavs for training camp.
The Cavs already have a 20 man roster and will have to cut a non-guarenteed training camp invitee.
Wade who is 35 years old now, averaged 18.3 ppg with the bulls last year, the lowest of his career. He is a three-time NBA champion, 12-time All-Star and eight-time member of an All-NBA team.
Wade joins a team that is noticeably different from the team that made a good play off run before losing 4-1 in the finals to the Golden State Warriors. Some of the changes include the trade that sent Kyrie Irving to the Celtics in exchange for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder and other pieces.
