The first day of NBA free agency didn’t have as many fireworks as NBA Twitter would have liked, but that didn’t prevent people from closely following the announcements all day long. Conspicuously absent from the day’s proceedings were LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. Both were spotted at Atlantis in the Bahamas having a good time together with their wives.
Does this mean Dwyane Wade is taking his talents to the shores of Lake Erie? No, Dan Gilbert just turned his pockets inside out to pay Kevin Love, and Tristan Thompson’s new deal is around the corner, so the Cavs have already dispensed a lot of money without adding Wade’s eight-figure number to the mix.
This looks to be just a couples’ getaway for LeBron and Wade, but Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul could be joining them for the tropical R&R as well, since Wade, ‘Melo and Chris Paul are LeBron’s only three “very good friends.”
LeBron and Wade are still free agents, but there’s no indication either will be leaving their respective teams.
They’re just two friends enjoying the benefits of the offseason, trying to relax while the frenzy of free agency twirls around them.
