Cleveland Cavaliers trade Dwyane Wade to Miami Heat at National Basketball Association trade deadline

The news didn't exactly catch him by surprise, but it definitely made the 36-year-old veteran and Heat legend happy.

How did you feel when you heard Dwyane Wade was coming back to the Heat, Miami? "For me, it's always been a hope".

Wade spent his first 13 NBA seasons with the Heat after being the fifth overall pick in the 2003 NBA Draft, and recently said that his goal was still to retire as a member of the team. "I don't know what we traded for him but come on back D-Wade". I can't wait to put on that No. 3 in that Miami Heat jersey. But with Miami in the midst of a five-game skid, this team needed a shot in the arm. His work ethic and commitment to the game of basketball with such an illustrious career was greatly respected by his Cavs teammates and everyone in our front office. However, Dwyane Wade went back home to the Miami Heat, who are sitting at 29-26 and look to repeat their late-season success from a year ago to compete in the National Basketball Association playoffs once again. They're all excited he's back with the franchise he helped lead to three National Basketball Association titles and where he earned 12 All-Star appearances. Maybe there's even a chance to like LeBron a little bit again if that's true, but only after the hoped-for opportunity to boo him and cheer Wade at equally ridiculous decibel levels in the crucible of the postseason. "That's it. That's all we both needed".

Welcome back, Dwyane Wade. Their guard rotation is crowded with solid players like Goran Dragic, Tyler Johnson, Josh Richardson and Wayne Ellington.

"There's something about Dwyane at the end of games that is unique and special", Riley said. "Love you my guy!" he wrote.

At the deadline, the Cavaliers went through a massive overhaul to try and make the team younger, more equipped for the future, and also able to win now with James still in town. "We figured it would probably be next year".
