Wade: Joining Bulls “Surreal”; Free Agents Free to Sign
MIAMI (AP) — Dwyane Wade says his decision to leave Miami to sign with the Chicago Bulls felt "surreal".
The 12-time All-Star guard made the comment while co-hosting 'Live with Kelly" a day after coming to a free agent agreement with the Bulls.
He spent his entire 13 year NBA career with the Heat, helping them to three NBA title and winning the league's MVP award in 2006.
Wade was co-hosting the morning talk show to fulfill a commitment he made several weeks ago. He spent a few minutes at the start of the opening segment talking about the decision and thanking Heat fans.
Wade told The Associated Press he is planning to do something on-camera when his playing career ends, and accepted the chance to guest-host in part because it would provide him with at least a small taste of what television work would be like.
Free agents free to sign
UNDATED (AP) — The window is open for the NBA free agents to sign the deals they've agreed to.
Kevin Durant will be introduced by his new team, the Golden State Warriors at a news conference later today. The big catch of the free agent period agreed to join the Western Conference champs with a two-year, $54 million deal, leaving Oklahoma City behind.
Dallas wasted no time avoiding a repeat of last year's fiasco when they thought they had an agreement with DeAndre Jordan, only to have him decide to stay with the Clippers. Owner Mark Cuban tweeted a picture of Harrison Barnes playfully handcuffed to president of basketball operations Donnie Walsh. The former Golden State forward signed a four-year, $94 million deal as soon as the rules allowed, shortly after midnight.
