The Cleveland Cavaliers may have missed out on the Dwyane Wade sweepstakes, even though they really didn’t have much of a chance to sign him, but they may have gotten a player who fits their system way better.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Chicago Bulls will be making moves in order to clear cap space to sign Wade. One of those moves is trading away shooting guard/small forward Mike Dunleavy to the Cavaliers.

The Cavaliers will be using the Anderson Varejao trade exception worth $9.6 million to take on Dunleavy’s $4.8 million contract.
