Wade returning to Heat from Cavs

The Miami Heat got a future Hall of Famer when they selected Dwyane Wade with the fifth overall pick in 2003

The NBA's 2018 trade deadline has been dominated by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

That the Cavs reshaped their roster so dramatically seemed to imply that they're committed to trying to help James get back to the Finals this year and perhaps convincing him to stay in Cleveland this offseason. The second, a massive three-team deal, netted them Rodney Hood and George Hill. The first sent Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye and a pick to the Lakers for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.

In their third major trade of the day, the Cavaliers are sending Dwyane Wade, LeBron James' best friend, to the place where they played together for four seasons - Miami. Here's reportedly why that happened. He's getting traded back "home" to Miami, where he played for most of his career. He proved that he can transition to the bench and contribute even at 36. On the floor, losing Wade won't move the needle much for Cleveland. Wade didn't really play into that.

Miami Heat shooting guard Wayne Ellington (shoulder) was able to get up shots at Thursday's practice, but he is now without an official timetable to return.

The Cavs coaching staff was considering reducing Dwyane Wade's playing time and he's been agitating for a return "home" to Miami in the future, sources said. The Cavaliers get a heavily protected second-round pick in the deal.

Miami Heat fans won't have to wait long to see Dwyane Wade on the floor at AmericanAirlines Arena. Derrick Rose, who nearly retired last November, went to a Utah Jazz team that is two games below.500 and two spots out of playoff contention.
