Bulls, Dwyane Wade agree to contract buyout

The Cavs also emerged as one of the favorites - if not the favorite - to land the 35-year-old Wade after the three-time National Basketball Association champion reached a buyout agreement with the Chicago Bulls.

Cleveland appears to be the front-runner of the four.

Wade and the Chicago Bulls reached a buyout agreement Sunday, a person familiar with the negotiations told USA TODAY Sports.

Wade averaged 18 points through 60 games previous year. D-Wade's efficiency has dropped too.

So while the idea of adding a player of Wade's talent would obviously be appealing, as well as another feather in the Thunder's cap as it tries to take down Golden State, it's a more awkward fit than one would initially think.

Spain sends more police to Catalonia to block referendum
Catalonia represents a fifth of Spain's 1.1-trillion-euro ($1.32 trillion) economy and enjoys wide self-government. They would join the roughly 5,000 state police normally stationed in Catalonia and around 17,000 Mossos officers.

James said he tried "to do whatever I could to help the kid", but said his advice would stop now that Irving plays for another team.

As Heat fans remember, Wade left for Chicago over a year ago during free agency when he and Riley were not on speaking terms.

After the Carmelo Anthony trade, the Oklahoma City Thunder have been thrust into the upper echelon of Western Conference teams, with a big three consisting of Russell Westbrook, Paul George, and Anthony himself. The Heat have solidified its starting backcourt with Goran Dragic and Dion Waiters, the latter of whom just signed a lucrative four-year deal to remain in Miami. Wade is considering several options, including a potential return to Miami or a reunion with longtime friend LeBron James in Cleveland, according to the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the buyout has not been formally announced.

Although the Heat can pay him more, money won't be the only thing the 12-time All-Star will consider in his decision. San Antonio will be without Tony Parker to start the season and could use some backcourt scoring.

And the chance to play for Gregg Popovich and the Spurs has its merits. And a homecoming to Miami, a city that unconditionally loves him, certainly makes more sense than Cleveland.
