Just when it seemed there would only be one free agent, future Hall of Fame superstar leaving the one team he has played for his entire career this summer, we potentially have another. Two days after Kevin Durant decided to join the Golden State Warriors, Adrian Wojnarowski of the Vertical is reporting that Dwyane Wade intends to sign a two-year deal with his hometown Chicago Bulls.

Wade spent the first 13 seasons of his NBA career with the Miami Heat and in that span has made 12 straight All-Star teams, scored 20,221 points and won three championships.
Thought to be a "one-franchise" player, Wade was miffed by the Heat's offer of a two-year, $40 million contract after years of making salary concessions so the team could sign players like LeBron James and Chris Bosh.
What's Pat Riley to do now? Looks like the Internet is already having fun at his expense.
