Earlier this week, a crazy rumor surfaced out of Chicago about Dwyane Wade possibly being on the trading block – with the implication being that the Heat and Bulls were discussing a deal involving the former Finals MVP.
“The trade rumors circulating are simply rumors,” Wade said in a statement released by his publicist.
“My focus this summer has been to rehab and train for the Olympics and the upcoming season,” said Wade. “Coach Riley and I spoke earlier this week to address the media reports and we are on the same page — rebuilding this team to once again become contenders.”
Sorry, Bulls fans. Looks like your team is going to miss out on a superstar shooting guard for the second consecutive year. Better make good on that top draft pick.
