MIAMI (Reuters) - Dwyane Wade is leaving the Miami Heat for the Chicago Bulls, returning to the city of his birth, multiple media outlets reported on Wednesday (July 7).
The 12-time NBA All-Star guard had agreed to a $47.5 million two-year deal with the Bulls, the Miami Herald reported.
Wade's move brings down the curtain on 13 seasons with the Heat, where he was an integral part of three championship-winning teams, two of them with LeBron James as his team-mate.
The 34-year-old is a Chicago native, though he has played his entire NBA career in south Florida.
Wade reportedly felt underappreciated by the Heat, after taking a pay cut in 2010 to allow the team come in under the salary cap.
He has averaged 23.7 points and 5.8 rebounds during his NBA career.
