Dwyane Wade's stint with the Chicago Bulls may be coming to an end. The Bulls have considered a buy out of Wade's contract, and the Miami Heat are interested in bringing him back on a $4.3 million exception, according to report this week by Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

The Chicago native joined the Bulls as a free agent in July 2016 after 13 seasons with the Heat. He has one year remaining on his contract at $23.8 million.

Wade, a 12-time All-Star, discussed his Bulls future with David Aldridge of NBA TV, explaining that he would "love to compete for a championship" to end his career.

"When the time is right for me and the Chicago Bulls to sit down and talk about the future, we will do that," said Wade. "The time hasn't been right obviously to this point. But I will be in Chicago soon enough and hopefully we get an opportunity to sit down and talk about the future and the direction and go from there. I'm 35 years old. I'm a grown man. I can definitely sit across the room from you and listen to your truth and hopefully hear mine and go from there."

It's possible Wade would consider moving on after questioning younger teammates' determination in late January and after the front office decided to part ways with veterans. In June, the Bulls traded star swingman Jimmy Butler, who, like Wade, attended Marquette University. The Bulls also waived veteran point guard Rajon Rondo. 

Along with the Heat, the Cleveland Cavaliers also reportedly have interest in signing Wade. LeBron James is in the final year of his contract with the Cavs and he remains good friends with Wade after the pair spent four seasons together in Miami.

ESPN's Nick Friedell said in August that he expects Wade's contract to get bought out and that joining the Cavs on a one-year deal makes the most sense. Friedell also referenced Miami and Los Angeles as possible destinations.

Wade averaged 18.3 points per game in 2016-17. He played in 60 games and suffered a sprain and a small fracture in his right elbow.
