Wade agreed to a contract with the Bulls on Wednesday that's expected to be worth $47 million over two years, Adrian Wojnarwoski of Yahoo! Sports reports. Another very surprising development during this year's NBA free agency, Wade becomes just the latest player to leave a team he's been with for his entire career. Wade will pair with newly acquired Rajon Rondo in the Bulls' backcourt, however, there's now questions regarding how the Bulls will space the floor with Wade coming off a 2015-16 campaign where he shot a miserable 16 percent from the three-point line. At 34 years old, Wade participated in 74 games this past year, making it one of his healthiest seasons in recent memory, but with Jimmy Butler and Rajon Rondo alongside him, to go along with the expected floor spacing issues, Wade's fantasy value may have taken a hit in his move to Chicago.
Wade scored 16 points (6-13 FG, 2-4 FT, 2-4 3Pt) to go along with four rebounds and three assists in 34 minutes during Sunday's Game 7 loss to the Raptors. Wade was surprisingly quiet in Sunday's decisive game, setting his low mark for the series in both field-goal attempts and scoring as the Heat's offensive struggles carried over. He still had many strong contributions throughout the series, finishing with averages of 23.9 pints, 5.9 rebounds and 3.6 assists over the seven contests, and he will now become an unrestricted free agent in what could be a summer of change for the club.
Wade scored 22 points (8-21 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT) while adding six rebounds, five assists, three blocks and two steals in 37 minutes during Friday's Game 6 win over the Raptors. He wasn't able to really get rolling offensively thanks to some tight defense from DeMarre Carroll, as Wade's 38.1 percent shooting from the floor was his worst of the series, but he still made contributions all over the court as he helped the Heat force a Game 7. Expect the future Hall of Famer to embrace the pressure Sunday in Toronto and come through, at the very least, with his fifth straight 20-plus point performance.
Wade went for 20 points (6-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 7-10 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, and one block across 34 minutes during the Heat's 99-91 loss to the Raptors in Wednesday's Game 5. Wade didn't overshoot the ball, and he was fairly efficient as a scorer. However, he posted a game-low plus/minus -19. As has been the case in most of Miami's playoff losses, the team struggled to put the ball in the basket, and they will probably need to produce more points in order to stay alive Friday and force Game 7. Wade has been relied on heavily during the playoffs, and that seems rather unlikely to change going forward. Furthermore, he has made nine threes (on 60 percent) this postseason after not sinking one since December, so Wade is clearly pulling out all the stops.
Wade led all scorers with 30 points (13-22 FG, 4-5 FT, 0-2 3Pt) to which he added four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 39 minutes during Monday's overtime win over the Raptors. Wade has been in attack mode over the last two games, as he has attempted 49 total shots and managed to convert at a 53% clip. He has scored over a third of Miami's points during that span, and he should continue to carry an even heavier load with Hassan Whiteside (knee) ailing.
