Dwayne Wade leaning heavily toward Cavaliers
CLEVELAND -- Dwyane Wade is leaning heavily toward the Cavaliers as his new team once he clears waivers and may have already decided on a reunion with LeBron James, league sources with knowledge of Wade's thinking told cleveland.com.
Wade, 35, a 12-time All-Star and close friend to LeBron James, is expected to clear waivers Wednesday, when he is free to sign with any team. He accepted an approximately $16 million buyout of his $23.8 million contract from the Chicago Bulls on Sunday night.
Wade has given no indication publicly what he will do, and at least three teams -- the Oklahoma City Thunder, San Antonio Spurs, and his old team the Miami Heat -- are interested in him. His agent is taking calls from those teams and others, and Wade told the Associated Press he would do his due diligence as well.
But a prominent league source outside of James' circle with knowledge of Wade's thinking told cleveland.com that Wade "has no intention of going anywhere else." Sources close to James have long believed he would come to Cleveland in the event of a buyout. - CLICK HERE to read full story.

Gilbert, a billionaire who owns Quicken Loans and several real estate and development companies in Detroit, is to appear Tuesday with Ivanka Trump at an event celebrating $200 million in federal grants for technical education and training.
He also appeared at the White House over the summer with President Donald Trump, and Quicken Loans contributed $750,000 to Trump's inauguration. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
