Dwyane Wade is headed back to Miami.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Thursday the Cleveland Cavaliers worked out a deal that sends Wade to the Miami Heat in exchange for “a heavily protected” second-round pick.
After spending first 13 years of his 15-year NBA career in Miami, Wade played in 46 games with the Cavaliers this season, averaging 11.2 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.5 assists and shooting 45.5 percent from the field and 32.9 percent from the 3-point line.
Wade’s trade is one of several moves the Cavaliers made Thursday afternoon before the 3 p.m. trade deadline including trading point guard Isaiah Thomas and forward Channing Frye to the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for guard Jordan Clarkson and forward Larry Nance, Jr.
The Cavalier also traded Jae Crowder and Derrick Rose to the Utah Jazz for Sacramento Kings’ George Hill and Jazz’s Rodney Hood as part of a three-way trade.
