Wade leaving Miami Heat for Chicago Bulls

Dwyane Wade is going home, making what he called "an extremely emotional and tough decision" on Wednesday night to leave the Miami Heat after 13 seasons and sign with the Chicago Bulls.

Wade, 34, a Chicago native, will sign a two-year deal with the Bulls, one that will pay him about $47 million. Miami offered $40 million over two years for Wade to stay in the uniform that he's worn his entire career, the one in which he was an All-Star 12 times, a champion three times and the NBA Finals MVP in 2006 when his rise to superstardom was just truly beginning.

The Bulls were on the verge of offloading the contracts of Jose Calderon and Mike Dunleavy to have enough money to sign Wade in free agency, league sources told the Chicago Tribune. Dunleavy reportedly is headed to Cleveland.
