Dwyane Wade could flee to the Bulls, according to report

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

If Dwyane Wade is ready to leave Miami, the Bulls could be a destination.

The Chicago Bulls are interested in free agent shooting guard Dwyane Wade if the Chicago native decides to leave the Miami Heatreports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. LeBron James' decision to depart from South Beach and return home to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers is rippling through free agency.

The "Big Three" era in Miami has ended, and Wade remains as the lone member with an uncertain future after he opted out of a significant amount of money to allow the Heat more financial flexibility to create a revamped roster for the trio. Chris Bosh will likely sign with the Houston Rockets on a maximum contract after James' announcement.

The Bulls are still waiting for Carmelo Anthony to make a decision on his future and could start exploring their alternative options. Wade was expected to take a significant pay cut to remain with the Heat, but it's unclear if he will consider his own options without Bosh and James returning.

Wade met with the Bulls during free agency in 2010 but re-signed with Miami. James and Bosh are both preparing for returns to their home states, and Wade may have the option of doing the same for himself.
