After Arron Afflalo agrees to 2-year, $25 million deal with the Kings, New York Knicks have a free SG position.
They have 22 M in the salary cap and they can use for Dwyane Wade immediately.
"As the Miami Heat focus on a Sunday meeting with Kevin Durant, free agent Dwyane Wade is intensifying talks with other teams, including the New York Knicks and Milwaukee Bucks, sources told ESPN," the report disclosed.
After Miami signed Hassan Whiteside, they are now focused more on Kevin Durant and they will try to find a space to offer him a max contract.
On the other side, Dwyane Wade is a legend and he didn't deserve this, but to be honest - it's all about business. Pat Riley is one of the best presidents in the league and he knows that Kevin Durant is more valuable than Dwyane Wade. But, do you remember how Lakers showed respect when they signed a contract with Kobe Bryant, a few years ago?
Like I said... the NBA is business, and Wade knows that... But, just listen...
In New York,
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There's nothin' you can't do
Now you're in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let's hear it for New York, New York, New York
With Carmelo Anthony, Derrick Rose and Kristaps Porzingis they could create a Big 4, like Los Angeles Clippers (if they sign Kevin Durant, of course).
Dwyane Wade is the best shooting guard after Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant. He could have an opportunity to win a title with Phil Jackson. Jordan won six and Kobe won five NBA Championships. It could be great if Wade also wins a title with Phil Jackson.
Also, he knows about The Brotherhood: Can dreams come true?
Hm... I think that he is now a step closer than he was yesterday. Veteran guard Joe Johnson has agreed to a two-year, $22 million contract with the Utah Jazz.
Also, a free agent Luol Deng has agreed to a four-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers that is worth $72 million, a source confirmed to ESPN's Chris Broussard on Saturday.
Miami Heat could not win a title only with Hassan Whiteside, Chris Bosh (questionable) and Dwyane Wade.
I'm 99% sure he will sign with the New York Knicks. Remember this article. He will sign with New York Knicks.
It will be great to watch the NBA next season, Cleveland Cavaliers with LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love against New York Knicks with Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade and Derrick Rose.
Who would you pick?
New York Knicks are waiting 43 years for the NBA Championship and this is the best opportunity for them. D-Wade won three titles with Miami Heat, now he could win with the Knicks, too.
Now, we are waiting for D-Wade' decision. It will be tough one... and what if LeBron calls him to Cleveland Cavaliers?
