Is Dwyane Wade set to leave the Miami Heat? The veteran Heat star is meeting with rival teams in New York to hear free agent proposals.
The Chicago Bulls have postponed their face-to-face meeting with Dwyane Wade, according to league sources. The Heat star met with the Denver Nuggets and the Milwaukee Bucks to negotiate a deal on Wednesday.
The Bulls’ couldn’t meet Wade due to flight delay issues but remain significantly involved in a conversation with the veteran star despite not having met the Chicago native formally, as reported by the Vertical.
Wade and fellow free agent Chris Bosh were also linked in a free agency speculation with Chicago in 2010 summer. The Bulls’ front-office hinted that they haven’t called off the possibilities of signing Dwyane Wade this summer.
The franchise will be monitoring Wade to see what he decides. Few Bulls’ officials believe that Wade is using Chicago as a free-agency leverage to get a better offer from Miami. The Bulls have entered this free-agency with a different game-plan. After shipping former MVP Derrick Rose to the New York Knicks, Chicago general manager Gar Forman pointed out that his team is eyeing to get more “younger” and “athletic” this summer, as reported by the ESPN.
Chicago has already signed veteran point guard Rajon Rondo on Sunday and may not show much interest in acquiring Wade.
Moreover, the Bulls need to trade Mike Dunleavy and Jose Calderon to make room for Wade’s salary.
Denver Nuggets have offered a two-year, $52 million contract to Wade, as revealed by a league source. Heat has offered him a two-year, $40 million deal. But Wade is eyeing a three-year contract from Miami.
