OFFICIAL: Dwyane Wade Will Sign With Chicago Bulls

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Dwyane Wade will sign with the Chicago Bulls this offseason! After a long and stressful free agency period, which resulted in many failed negotiations and deals, Wade has finally brought his decision -- to sign with his hometown Chicago and play for the Bulls.

The decision must have not been easy for Wade as he had drawn interested from many NBA teams, and some of them were ready to offer him more than the Heat. For Miami, the problem was cap space as they couldn't have given Wade as much money as he wanted, as it would create problems with signing rest of the roster and it would also cost them a lot in the long run. The best example is the contract the Los Angeles Lakers gave to Kobe Bryant a few years ago. The contract rewarded Bryant's loyalty to the franchise, but it also made the Lakers irrelevant for a couple of years.

Wade was drafted by the Heat in 2003 and he led the team to their first-ever championship in 2006. He also helped them recruit the top free agents in 2010, when LeBron James and Chris Bosh joined him in Miami, to win two championship rings in four years. Without any doubt, he's had the biggest impact on the franchise and is its best player in the history of the team.

He will continue his career in the city where he grew up and will team up with Jimmy Butler in one of the most popular NBA franchises of all time. 

Good luck in Chicago, Dwyane Wade!
