Dwyane Wade‘s time in Chicago did not necessarily go according to plan. The future Hall of Fame shooting guard played well at times but ended up negotiating a buyout and, prior to that, had a high-profile blow-up with Jimmy Butler in which the duo criticized teammates and the squad as a whole.
With that said, it isn’t as if Wade burned bridges on the way out of town and, in fact, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune brings word that young players from the Bulls were positively impacted by the veteran’s presence.
Former first round pick Bobby Portis indicated that Wade was a “great leader” during his time in Chicago.
