CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Veteran Dwyane Wade was part of the Cleveland Cavaliers' roster overhaul Thursday afternoon, traded back to the Miami Heat for a protected second-round pick in 2024 during what Wade called an "eventful day." "We're definitely happy to be home," Wade said in a video posted to his Twitter account early Friday morning. "Thank you to the Cleveland Cavaliers fan base, thank you to the organization and the players that accepted me with open arms." A few months ago, Wade received a buyout from the Chicago Bulls, choosing to reunite with his best friend and former teammate LeBron James, as the two tried to rekindle the magic from their Miami days. There were some moments, as the duo known as "peanut butter and jelly" flashed that unique on-court chemistry. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
