Cavaliers are frontrunners, but where will Dwyane Wade land?

The Chicago Bulls and guard/forward Dwyane Wade have agreed to a buyout, per K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune. The San Antonio Spurs could also be a possible destination given the organization's championship pedigree. That is why the latest Lakers rumors are making a connection between Wade and Los Angeles.

With Kyrie Irving in Boston and Isaiah Thomas likely to miss an extended period of time due to his hip injury, the Cavaliers could use a shot creator to facilitate the offense when James is on the bench, a time they've struggled in the past.

According to National Basketball Association writer Alex Kennedy, the Cleveland Cavaliers have made it clear to Wade that he would start if he once again joins forces with his longtime friend LeBron James.

Having the prospects of Dwayne Wade on your team is salivating, even if it is not the same Wade from ten years ago. In fact, Parker made it clear he won't be suiting up for the team's opener on October 18 against the Minnesota Timberwolves as the Spurs, under coach Gregg Popovich, typically take an ultra-conservative approach in bringing players back from injury. Wade's been the better of the two players, and is more comfortable playing off the ball, but something would have to give if the Cavaliers signed Wade to go with Rose. Once he clears waivers, he can listen to offers from other teams. If either needs to miss any time, the Rockets won't have much of an option to take over. For one, Wade in Cleveland would mark a reunion with his former Heat teammate LeBron James.

Although the Heat can pay him more, money won't be the only thing the 12-time All-Star will consider in his decision. Combine that with the fact that the Thunder already will be giving heavy minutes to two below average three-point shooters in Westbrook and Andre Roberson, and the idea of adding Wade into the mix further compromises an already hard spacing situation in Oklahoma City. Everyone wants to play for Gregg Popovich (except LaMarcus Aldridge). James and Wade shared four seasons together thriving in South Beach and many offseason with each other's families.
