LeBron James ‘would love’ to have Dwyane Wade in Cleveland
LeBron James said he would love Dwyane Wade to join the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Wade and the Chicago Bulls have reached a buyout agreement and Cleveland is among his potential destinations. James and Wade won a couple of NBA titles together with the Miami Heat and are close friends.
“I would love D-Wade to be a part of this team. I think he brings another championship DNA, a championship pedigree, brings another playmaker to the team who can get guys involved and can make plays and also just has a great basketball mind and I think it would be great to have him here,” said James.
The 32-year-old James, who is entering his 15th NBA season, said Monday at the Cavaliers media day that he has spoken to Wade, and plans to again.
“I think it will be great to have him here and obviously our front office has done some great things throughout this summer so honestly, obviously, I’ve talked to D-Wade all summer and I probably will reach out to him as well, but it’s really not up to me, it’s kinda up to D-Wade,” James said. “If he can clear waivers then it’s up to our front office but I hope that we can bring him here. I would love to have him.
The two played four seasons together and had as many finals appearances with the Heat.
