As the Miami Heat get closer to a third straight NBA title speculation about the "Big Three", who can all opt-out of their contracts, will ramp up. While LeBron James and Chris Bosh are not near the end of their careers, Dwyane Wade is a different case as injuries have limited him throughout this season.
Assuming he doesn't decide to retire after the NBA Finals, here are five potential landing spots for Wade this summer.
A potential duo of Wade and Kobe Bryant would have looked better five years ago, but the Lakers have the salary cap space to pay Wade more than most other teams.
The Suns were the most surprising team in the league this season, with 48 wins that put them in contention for a playoff spot right to the end of the regular season. A veteran presence like Wade could be the piece that allows them to take the next step.
The Cavaliers could use a veteran guard to help Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters reach their full potential, and anything Wade offers on the court would be a nice bonus.
Going back to the Heat is a strong possibility, even if Wade opts out of his contract. Simply put, Wade would look strange in another uniform as his career comes to an end.
Wade was born in Chicago, and he may want to finish his career there if he doesn't stay in Miami. The Bulls could use Wade's scoring ability, even in short bursts and in a possible bench role.
