Is Dwyane Wade Signing With The Cleveland Cavaliers?

It might be the biggest question left in the NBA's free agency. Will Dwyane Wade leave the Miami Heat and head up north?

A pair of clues Tuesday suggest it could happen.

Earlier in the day, the Cleveland Cavaliers Twitter (NYSE: TWTR) account @Cavs followed Wade and his wife, Gabrielle Union. Later in the day, @Fathead Tweeted out a photo of Wade in a Cavs uniform, with the caption, "RT if you wanna see the @cavs make this happen."


Fathead is part of Rock Ventures LLC, an umbrella entity created to provide operational coordination, guidance, and integration for Dan Gilbert's portfolio of companies and investments. Gilbert is the owner of the Cavaliers franchise.

This could all just be some social media fun by these two organizations, but it certainly doesn't help quell any rumors.

"The idea of Wade spurning the Heat and taking a huge discount to go reunite with LeBron James in Cleveland is gaining steam," CBS Sports reported. "Wade, who reportedly has been displeased with Miami's offers, is seeking upwards of $25 million a year and would like to get a three-year deal in the process. The Heat probably don't feel great about that kind of monetary commitment when they're still trying to find a way back to being a title contender."

Wade has spent his 13-year NBA career with the Heat, winning three NBA Championships. He is also best friends with James, who just helped Cleveland win its first professional sports title in 64 years.
