Los Angeles an ‘appealing destination’ for Dwyane Wade if bought out by Bulls

Los Angeles is one of three destinations on Wade’s radar.


Yes, no, maybe??? ... thoughts, comments.

If it came to fruition I'm sure the coaches will figure it out based on what's best for the team.

Clarkson becomes the backup PG or gets traded.

Never been a fan of signing over the hill stars. They just refuse to accept they aren't as good as they think they are anymore.

Wonder if this forum ever did a best 'Over the Hill' Laker lineup.

If Wade were to join the Lakers he could be part of this 'Over the Hill' all star group:

Mitch Richmond
Joe Smith
Jim Jackson
Vlade Divac - Part II

Regardless Wade would potentially be our best player if he signed here.

We don't bring Wade to entice LeBron or having a better campaign next year.

But, if we're going for a championship team next season, with 2 max, and Wade takes a small payment (Room Exception), he can be a good 2nd unit leader and a viable option for closing some games.

Signing D-Wade for the room exception or vet min. would be too sweet of a deal to pass on.
He brings not only his skill-set but he adds championship pedigree, experience and leadership to the team.

Plus I think the banana boat would look pretty cool cruising in the South Bay.

LeBron left Wade in Miami. There's no way wade would be the reason he signs with LA.

Wade and Butler was bad for Chicago's youth. Rondo had to stand up for the young guys. Wade is not the guy we want for the style we're trying to play. Plus we're paying KCP 18 mill we need to give him a real opportunities to show if he's worth keeping going forward. Wade isn't gonna play back seat on this team. The only way I would want wade here if he was coming as cap space from a trade. Other than that he's useless. We need to showcase our guys and let free agents know they can get 35+ wins without them. Wade doesn't help with that because we're not gonna keep him past the season.

Agreed plus he will take KCP minutes and replace it with his lack of ball movement and defense.

KCP is a one year rental, we don't have the money to keep a player like him.

He is here to make it easier for Ball and will try to increase his market value in the process.

Lopez and Randle are in similar situation, but we at least have their bird rights, the same doesn't applies to KCP.

Wade can help us developing Ingram and Ball, he is a battle tested veteran. The main question in my mind is if he is willing to take the back sit and accept a small role.

post-prime wade is still better than any version of kcp or clarkson and is easily the best player on this team. we would be lucky to have him, but i don't see it happening.

I'd rather have the flexibility to keep Wade's Early Bird rights by trading something like JC/Brewer for him. Wade could sop up the backup guard minutes, even running the "PG" at times and bringing the ball up.

2 Max Scenarios:

-JC out for $0/Deng stretched = 57.6m in 2018 cap space
-Same as above and Jules renounced/traded for $0 = 69.9m in 2018 cap space

2 of 4 of these players will be Lakers in 2018 (LBJ/PG13/WB/Boogie)

Why would Wade sign with the Lakers?

If he wants to chase a ring with James, why wouldn't he simply take a vet minimum in Cleveland this year? Then look for the next move next summer. If bought out even MIA makes more sense then the Lakers this season.

I'm much more interested in seeing what the current roster can do then wasting money on a declining 35/36 yr old for the name recognition.

I prefer watching a youth movement over the geriatric ward the next few years. Lebron, Wade,...why not Melo? Might as well bring in Frye and Korver too.

B/c if you trade for Wade, he's not walking away from millions in a buyout. I would suspect he would have to walk away from 6-8m (out of a 24m salary).

JC is not likely part of the future, and KCP is likely a rental. So what exactly is Wade doing to hurt the team long-term?

Thread and my comment is not about a trade . It is about signing him after a buyout. Two entirely different scenarios.

On the trade scenario, I am still not thrilled with it. I continue to resist the schemes to shed salary this year. I would prefer seeing what kind of fit KCP and Clarkson have with this team before moving them for future fantasy purposes. Also include Randle in this line of thinking.

We got fined for tampering with PG13.

We traded out a talented and young prospect in DLO to start the 2 max slot movement.

We signed KCP to a 1 year deal (when we could have given him 4 years).

We traded specifically for an expiring player in Brook.

I understand your angst, but how long can folks scream at the sun? The Lakers are unequivocally carving out 2 max slots next summer. Either signing Wade as a buyout or trading him does not hamper that ultimate goal.

Appreciate your enthusiasm. I just do not feel like arguing this topic again. There is 100+ page thread to do so. I'm not there.

As I said, I'm more interested in this season, this roster and development of players and Walton's system. I'll worry about 2018 free agency next summer.

Concerning this topic. Wade makes no sense with the Lakers after a buyout. He has better opportunities on other teams. Mainly MIA or CLE.
