Bulls, Dwyane Wade expected to reach buyout

The Chicago Bulls and guard Dwyane Wade are expected to reach a buyout agreement in the next few months.

What It Means:

Coach Fred Hoiberg previously said that he doesn't expect Wade to be bought out during the summer, but that doesn't prevent the two sides from reaching an agreement early on this season. It would make sense given the Bulls' move toward a rebuild.

In 2016-17, Wade's -0.7 nERD ranked 8th on the team despite averaging 18.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game for Chicago.
