Dwyane Wade nearing commitment to sign with Cavaliers

They'll be grinding together on a daily basis now.

Dwyane Wade plans to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers as soon as Wednesday when he clears waivers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

From the start, it was expected that once Wade and Chicago reached a buyout agreement on his $23.8 million contract for this season - he still gets almost $16 million of it - Cleveland was likely where he landed. And I'm extremely excited. "I had so many different emotions go through my head". Several teams were linked to Wade upon him becoming a free agent including the Heat, Oklahoma City Thunder, and San Antonio Spurs.

In the meantime, Wade will get to play with James, Kevin Love, JR Smith, and Tristan Thompson.

"Been a fan of him for a long time, and I never thought in my wildest dreams that I'd be a teammate of his".

"That's the only thing I'm upset about really", he said. If you know me, I've always handled it in the most businesslike way. I don't know. I don't know what the right answer is.

Irving gave an awkward interview with "First Take" last week in which he said there was no reason to give James up a heads-up on the trade that now puts them on opposite ends of Eastern Conference's top two teams.

"Come on, man, this is like one of my best friends", James said after the first of Cleveland's two practices on the day - the second one set to be Wade's first with the Cavs. "It's going to be a good class'".

Dwyane Wade and LeBron James won two National Basketball Association titles together while members of the Miami Heat.

The Cavs say new point guard, Isaiah Thomas, won't be back from his hip injury until January but he's optimistic after a mini camp with Cavs players in Santa Barbara.

Wade has talked to coach Tyronn Lue about his role and seems assured that he'll be in the mix for a starting job. I started thinking about what it would be like to raise my family in my hometown.

"Cleveland believes in my talents and what I can bring to a championship contender both as a player and leader. But you also want to be in the best position for what you think is for you at that time".
