Dwyane Wade will return to the Chicago Bulls, according to reports. The 35-year-old Wade has decided to exercise his player option for next season. Wade will make 23.8 million dollars in the 2017-18 season.
When asked by NBA.COM’s David Aldridge why he decided to opt in, Wade said: “24 million reasons.”
With Wade coming back to the Bulls, does that mean Jimmy Butler will stay in Chicago? According to ESPN, the 27-year-old Butler wants to stay in Chicago. Butler’s name had reportedly been mentioned in trade talks with the Celtics, 76ers, and Cavaliers over the past week. At one point, it seemed Cleveland was the favorite, but Butler was not willing to commit long-term to the Cavaliers, according to ESPN.
