Wade gets Miami homecoming as Cavs clean house

Just when you thought the Cleveland Cavaliers were done. The second, a massive three-team deal, netted them Rodney Hood and George Hill. "For me, knowing him and being as close as I am to him and knowing how that situation unfolded in Miami at first, to see that both parties put that to the side and now he could go back and kinda figure his future out in the place, that's Wade county down there".

The Cavs started by sending Channing Frye and unhappy Isaiah Thomas to the Lakers for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.

The Cavs have made the trade deadline their show, orchestrating several blockbuster deals.

The Cleveland Cavaliers traded guard Dwyane Wade to the Miami Heat on Thursday for a "heavily" protected second-round pick, according to ESPN.

LeBron James endorsed the trade on Instagram on Thursday, saying he was happy for Wade. All of us embrace it in the manner that we want to win and that's why we brought Dwyane back home. James apparently did, and the Cavs went forth with it. With a backcourt suddenly stacked with young and athletic players, Dwyane Wade likely would have been squeezed for minutes. Still it seems clear there will be room for Wade to contribute to the team as they push for the playoffs this season.

But the Bulldogs did enough to earn the No. 1-ranked recruiting class, according to 247sports.com, among others. And there is a lot of prime talent available, including four five-star prospects.

Isaiah Thomas went from a team expected to compete for the National Basketball Association title to a team that is 22-31 and has little chance of competing at all this season.

The 36-year-old would find himself back in South Beach after only a season-and-a-half since he chose not to take president Pat Riley's offseason offer and bolted for his hometown Bulls on a two-year, $48 million contract, one which he was bought out of during the offseason.

"D-Waaaaaaaaaaade! I definitely got more lobs when D-Wade was around".

The Heat have yet to officially comment on the trade and whether Wade will be in uniform for Friday's home game vs. Milwaukee.
