Dwyane Wade to pick up his option and return to Bulls next season


Dwyane Wade will be back with the Bulls next season.

According to CSN's Vincent Goodwill, the 35-year-old guard will pick up his player option and return to the Bulls for a second season after signing with his hometown team last offseason.

Wade will make $23.8 million by picking up the option.

Last season, his first after 13 years with the Miami Heat, Wade averaged 18.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game. He shot 43.4 percent from the field and hit 45 3-pointers, the fourth most in a single season in his career.

That career has been an illustrious one, featuring 12 appearances on the Eastern Conference All-Star team, a trio of NBA titles and one Olympic gold medal.

Wade picking up his option will have serious implications on the Bulls' roster this offseason. The team is reportedly shopping Jimmy Butler and currently holds the No. 16 pick in Thursday's NBA Draft.
