In an unforeseen but positive turn of events, Dwyane Wade is returning to the Miami Heat as a result of a deal done an hour before the NBA’s trade deadline which was at 3 p.m.
The Heat have traded a protected second-round draft pick to the Cavaliers in exchange for the point guard who is arguably one the greatest players in NBA history.
Wade’s wife, Gabrielle Union, confirmed the news on social media.
Huge thank you to the fans in Cleveland for treating our family like family! Always love and gratitude ❤❤
