Dwyane Wade's return to Chicago after so many years away from home was one of the stories of the summer.
The shooting guard ended his 13-year relationship with the Miami Heat to join the new-look Chicago Bulls and finally head back to the city where he grew up.
Nobody really expected the three-time champion to leave the Heat but the franchise's decision to prioritise Hassan Whiteside opened the door for a Chi-Town move.
As the season approaches, the guard has admitted he entertained the idea of a reunion with former teammate LeBron James but felt he did not need to chase any more titles after his trio in the Sunshine State.
He said: “For me, it’s as simple as, I got a deal in Miami for $41 million, I got a deal in Chicago for $47 million. It didn’t come down to the money.
"I thought about Cleveland, but I didn’t fit there. You don’t just do something because, Oh, I could win the ring there. I have three rings. I don’t need to chase the ring.
"This is what I wanted to do. I couldn’t fight it. If you fight it, you’re gonna always be like, You shoulda, or, What could’ve—I don’t like to live my life like that.”
