Both Wade and LeBron James have openly said they would like to play together, but the fork in the road toward a parternship, according to sources, has been James' reluctance to join Wade in Miami.
Sources say Wade has deeply pondered the infrastructure of young talent the Bulls can surround him with, as opposed to the completely destroyed blueprint in Miami.
Bulls management would like a commitment from Wade before the team's meeting with James on Saturday.
If Wade and James cannot connect with a team outside of Miami, there is a good chance both players re-sign with Miami and Cleveland, respectively.
However, Wade and Bosh are also close friends. And sources have said Wade is considering a partnership with Chris Bosh in Chicago as well. The Bulls have $29.9 million in cap space, so the team can offer two players five-year, $87.7 million deals.
Sources have also said the Bulls are shopping Luol Deng for a "center" to free up even more cap space. And if Chicago can also move James Johnson, the team would have even more room to work.
Yes, the bench would be hard to fill with little money. But if you have Wade, Bosh, and James on one team, Chicago citizens could fill the bench.
The Bulls will have to make a strong pitch to James tomorrow, with James seemingly enjoying the New Jersey Nets meeting moreso than his New York Knicks rendezvous. But with Wade throwing the ball, the pitch may be nice and easy.
It's as if Wade was with the NWO black and white in Miami and now he's not only joined the Wolfpack, but is recruiting for them as well.
Anyone else waiting for Wade to rip off his Heat uniform to reveal a Bulls jersey? Any old wrestling fans out there?
Regardless, Miami Heat president Pat Riley is probably looking to hit someone with a chair.
