    Wade's $64m move to Bulls a homecoming


    DWYANE Wade is leaving the Miami Heat for the Chicago Bulls, returning to the city of his birth, multiple media outlets reported on Wednesday.

    The 12-time NBA All-Star guard had agreed to a US$47.5 million (S$64 million) two-year deal with the Bulls, the Miami Herald reported.

    Wade's move brings down the curtain on 13 seasons with the Heat, where he was an integral part of three championship-winning teams, two of them with LeBron James as his team-mate.

    Wade reportedly felt under-appreciated by the Heat after taking a pay cut in 2010 to allow the team to come in under the salary cap.

    He has averaged 23.7 points and 5.8 rebounds during his NBA career.

    Wade is the second big name in the NBA to move this week, following Kevin Durant's switch from Oklahoma City to the Golden State Warriors.
