Three months after trading Jimmy Butler and waiving Rajon Rondo, the Bulls reached agreement on a buyout with Dwyane Wade on Sunday night, the eve of training camp. The Thunder, who acquired Carmelo Anthony in a blockbuster trade over the weekend, would only be able to offer the minimum salary. Chicago will now tank and has ridded its roster of most every veteran as the Bulls look to swipe the top pick in the draft to begin the rebuilding process.
With the Chicago Bulls committed to being one of the worst teams in the National Basketball Association this season and Dwyane Wade set to turn 36 in January during his 15th year in the league, it never made sense for him to spend a second season in the Windy City.

Trump hits back at 'madman' Kim with new economic sanctions
North Korea's recent missile launches over Japan especially drew stern rebukes from Tokyo and the global community. All six of North Korea's nuclear tests thus far, dating to 2006, have been conducted in underground tunnels.
The obvious connection, and something that has been discussed all offseason is the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The reason it seems unlikely to happen, though, are the draws of playing with either Paul or James in similarly needy situations with Houston or Cleveland. As Haberstroh explored during the 2013 NBA Finals, James and the Heat were often more effective with Wade on the bench.
James posted on Instagram after working out with Wade: "To say we had a great week of work would be an understatement".
