LeBron James only consulted on Dwyane Wade trade, not others

This was more of Altman doing Wade a favor than the Cleveland Cavaliers actually gaining any return for Wade.

That trade also sends Joe Johnson from Utah to Sacramento. The second, a massive three-team deal, netted them Rodney Hood and George Hill.

The Miami Heat got a future Hall of Famer when they selected Dwyane Wade with the fifth overall pick in 2003.

When asked about Wade's imminent return, Haslem sounded as if he was willing to grant his old teammate a share of his city once again, although it's not entirely clear whether he's 100 percent cool with it.

The blockbuster moves come the day after the Cavaliers overtime win against the Timberwolves, which James won at the buzzer. It's how it's suppose to be. You can find me quicker than anybody.

Prior to their brief reunion with the Cavs this season, James and Wade had played together for four seasons with the Heat from 2010-14. "For real? I thought he was joking".

Cleveland dealt away six players.

"I think at this point, it's all about his family, being around his family, being in a situation where he's comfortable". "This trade really puts some wind in our sails". The Cavs will keep the other first-round pick in the trade that sent Kyrie Irving to Boston last summer for Thomas.

Thomas seemed to sense his odd stay in Cleveland was over.

James has reacted on Instagram to the move.

"I'm exhausted of being traded", he said.

He's a symbol of so many good things for Miami, and that predates The Big Three phenomenon. "It hasn't been as planned, but I definitely want to be here".

In his one season in Cleveland, Wade is averaging 11.2 per game coming off the bench. "Cavs felt it was important to make sure James understood, since Wade is his best friend", Shelburne reports.

"It's not something I wanted to do", Altman said.

The trade comes hours before the NBA's 3 p.m. trade deadline.

While Thomas struggled on the floor, he didn't help himself with some peculiar off-the-court comments.

Still, it took some time for head coach Tyronn Lue to find Wade's ideal fit.
