The Chicago Bulls thought that they had a scent chance of making a run at some top free agents back in 2010, but everyone seemed to bolt to Miami. The Bulls had discussions with Dwyane wade about returning home to Chicago but he elected to stay with the Heat and recruit Chris Bosh and LeBron James — a move that resulted in two straight championships making it three more for Wade than the Bulls have had since Michael Jordan left in 1998.
But the Bulls are going to have some cap space to play with this summer and may make a run at Wade that convinces him to come to Chicago and compete with Derrick Rose and the Bulls. Sam Amico from FOX Sports states that Wade may get significantly less than LeBron James and Chris Bosh this summer and Chicago overpaying for him may be too good to pass up.
It’s frankly hard to see either the Bulls overpaying for Wade or Wade deciding to leave Miami knowing that both LeBron and Bosh are coming back. Miami is Wade’s team and it will always be that way, and if he refused to bail once then he likely won’t revisit that idea this summer.
