Three-time NBA champion expected to be a free agent in the "next few months"

What's next is anyone's guess.

Dwyane Wade opted into the final year of his two-year contract with the Chicago Bulls earlier this offseason, a $23 million one-year deal. But he apparently won't finish the year with the Bulls according to ESPN's Nick Friedell:

"Dwyane Wade isn't long for the organization's future and is expected to reach a buyout agreement at some point in the next few months."

The move comes after the Bulls traded Jimmy Butler to the Minnesota Timberwolves, fully committing to a rebuild.

Where Wade lands is anyone's guess. He could opt to play one season with LeBron James in Cleveland. Maybe he heads to Los Angeles. We should know in the coming months, but what is a certainty is that he can still play in this league.

Wade is a 12-time All-Star, 2005-06 Finals MVP, eight-time All-NBA player and former three-time All-Defensive player.
