Wade says he wants to play for championship contender before career ends

Wade says he wants to play for championship contender before career ends”

If bought out, several sources believe that the Cleveland Cavaliers have the best shot at signing the three-time National Basketball Association champion.

No buyout talks have transpired since the Butler trade, which came two days after Wade exercised his $23.8 million player option.

The 35-year-old future Hall of Famer wants to compete for an National Basketball Association title in the twilight of his career.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reported on Friday that the Heat are interested in bringing back Wade if he agrees to a bench role and is willing to play for the team's $4.3 million room exception.

Reports of the expectation of Wade to land in Cleveland at some point this season, or make his way back to Miami before the end of his career, and most recently consider L.A.as a potential destination were all momentarily put to rest by the hometown star.

"Obviously, when you get an award like this you sit back and reflect on your childhood and where you were", said Wade. "It's no secret. We would all love to compete for a championship at the end of my career". "The only thing I'll say is right now my is to be in training camp". So If I never go to another one, I can't complain. I would love to, because I feel I can add to something a team that's in that position. "The time hasn't been right obviously to this point", Wade responded. "My whole focus in life was I wanted to be better".

Well, that would explain why Butler's trainer, Travelle Gaines, criticized the Bulls by saying that the organization has the "worst culture in the league".

During an interview with K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune on Thursday at the Basketball Hall of Fame where Wade was receiving the Manny Jackson Human Spirit Award, Wade kept it simple and said that he will in fact be at training camp when the Bulls are scheduled to report on September 25. Beyond that, Wade as sixth man could come into play given the rebuilding situation - another reason why speculation on an eventual buyout reigns.

"But in moments like this, a lot of people come together". Which, at 35 years old, is going to be sooner rather than later. I'm under contract with the Bulls right now, and that's what I'm preparing for.
