Weighing options after agreeing to Bulls' buyout — Wade to AP

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted that the Chicago Bulls reached a buyout agreement with Wade on Sunday and that Miami, Cleveland, Oklahoma City and San Antonio are all possibilities for Wade.

Wade gave up $8 million of his $23.8 million to help facilitate the buyout in time for the start of training camp this week. The Cavs, Thunder, Spurs and Heat are also all in consideration.

With Kyrie Irving in Boston and Isaiah Thomas likely to miss an extended period of time due to his hip injury, the Cavaliers could use a shot creator to facilitate the offense when James is on the bench, a time they've struggled in the past. The Heat have solidified its starting backcourt with Goran Dragic and Dion Waiters, the latter of whom just signed a lucrative four-year deal to remain in Miami.

The Flipkart sale will see the debut of Honor 6X and Honor 8 Pro , smartphones that were available only on Amazon India so far. The company is also offering No Cost EMI options from Rs 6,500 a month and other EMIs starting from Rs 1,333 per month.

Clearly, there are still some hurdles that need to be cleared for Wade to reunite with the Heat. With media day on Monday, an announcement could come quick. Carmelo Anthony and Paul George have both been recruiting the 12-time All-Star as well.

And the chance to play for Gregg Popovich and the Spurs has its merits. "I'll make the one that fits me best at this point in my career and with what I feel I have to offer a team that needs what I have to offer". Those are the exact two areas where Wade is a huge liability in at this point in his career. The pair worked out recently, with Wade posting on Instagram: "To say we had a great week of work would be an understatement". Dwayne Wade gets a place where he can be a teacher for one season and then make a run for the NBA Finals next season. James and Wade shared four seasons together thriving in South Beach and many offseason with each other's families. In basketball terms, it probably makes the least sense.

Unless Wade decides he can't take a second straight season of Midwestern winters, he should sign with the Cavaliers sometime in the next few weeks.
