I would love to, because I feel I can add to something a team that’s in that position.
During an interview with K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune on Thursday at the Basketball Hall of Fame where Wade was receiving the Manny Jackson Human Spirit Award, Wade kept it simple and said that he will in fact be at training camp when the Bulls are scheduled to report on September 25.
Wade, a Chicago native, had dreams of playing professional ball growing up in the Windy City, and he was able to fulfill those dreams when he landed with the team in 2016.
Wade’s comments suggest that Cleveland might have an edge over Miami if Wade gets a Bulls buyout. The Bulls have partnered with announcements at home games. That is one thing I would love to do. “That’s why as soon as I was able to make it in the National Basketball Association, I set up a foundation”.
It makes sense that, if Wade were to come back, he’d have to come off the bench. “Anytime you are recognized in the community for all you do to help it’s special”. I was excited to come out and spend time with Dwyane and support him. Maybe other people want to get behind (my Wade’s World foundation) and support it. “It’s a well deserved award”.
Chicago Bulls shooting guard Dwyane Wade may still be under contract to play for the Bulls this season, but there have have been multiple reports saying that the team is expected to buy out the 35-year-old at some point this year.
According to Wade, per Hoops Hype’s Alex Kennedy, the player was given the impression by the front office that the Bulls were looking to keep the core team together, which included three-time NBA All-Star Jimmy Butler. Still, there are a number of players who are facing uncertain futures this year, and we have updates on the situations surrounding Dwyane Wade and Iman Shumpert.
They won the first couple of playoff games against the Celtics on the road. So he’s talking enthusiastically about helping lead our young group of players and helping them get off on the right foot. With (Lauri) Markkanen, a rookie, (Zach) LaVine, having averaged 20 points and helping him along in his progression to where he can be a leader and a go to guy at some point in his career.
“When the time is right for me and the Chicago Bulls organization to sit down and talk about the future, we will do that”.
