    No he won't, but I would be down to swoop in with a Beverley for Dragic deal to free them up cap to re-sign Wade and Durant.

    Beverley and Beasley for Dragic and McBob? Clears like over 15 million for them.

    I agree, but that wouldn't be the type of trade to dump him in lol.

    Why would you want Dragic? He will pout if he had to come off the bench. Harden won't let him handle the ball as much.

    TJones is easy to get rid of.

    Just don't submit the QO.

    Love how Wade isn't letting Riles off the hook.

    40M available for Whiteside, Wade, Deng, J. Johnson, T. Johnson.

    Your move, Riles.

    Two of the teams Wade's camp contacted to let know that he was fielding offers were the Spurs and Mavericks via Windhorst on Ethan Skolnick's radio show just now.

    So he will be treated as a ring chaser? I don't see it.

    Wonder who 'rival execs' are? Or just any execs.

    Wade to San Antonio would be something strange.

    Can someone who has multiple rings (and was an integral part of all 3 rings) even be considered a ring chaser?

    Cleveland doesn't have cap space and Wade isn't thinking about leaving Miami because he wants another ring, he wants to chase dollars.

    Wade and Dirk on the same team? Man, if this was 10 years ago...

    Not 1, not 2, not 3...

    Of course. He would go to another team for less money in order to get one more ring.
    If he joined Cleveland for 60M/4y, would you not call him a ring chaser? Because he can get more if he stays in Miami, but getting a ring is more likely in Cleveland.
