Dwyane Wade has reunited with his former Miami Heat teammate LeBron James and signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Bought out of his contract with the Chicago Bulls on Sunday, Wade was quickly linked to James and the Cavaliers, and by Tuesday, reports surfaced that a deal was imminent. On Wednesday, the Cavaliers finalized Wade’s contract.
“In the hopes of pursuing a fourth championship, I’ve reached a deal with the Chicago Bulls and I am excited to share that I will be joining the Cleveland Cavaliers this season,” Wade said in a statement announcing his signing.
“There’s no better place to be right now to continue to play and compete at the highest level. Cleveland believes in my talents and what I can bring to a championship contender, both as a player and leader. I look forward to reuniting and playing alongside my brother LeBron. We’ve already won two championships together and I hope we win a third.”
