Huge Signing?

We start off in the NBA, where Dwyane Wade could be on his way out of Miami. Wade has been at the Heat for his entire carer, but according to a report from Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated, there is a real mutual interest between the two parties.

Wade has the right to opt out of his current deal with the Heat and is reportedly open to leaving Miami if the two sides can't agree on a new contract. He is due to make $16.1 million next season and while it is a lot, the Lakers certainly have the cap space to afford the 11-time All-Star.

The 33-year old Wade has spent his entire 12-year career in Miami after being drafted with the 5th pick out of Marquette. The shooting guard averaged 21.5 points, 4.8 assists and 3.5 rebounds in 62 games this season.

If Wade was to join the Lakers he would be teaming up with Kobe Bryant, which would be incredible to watch.
