Cavs trade Wade to Miami, overhaul roster

Cavs trade Wade to Miami, overhaul roster

The Cavaliers had maybe the wildest trade deadline day in recent National Basketball Association history. LeBron James' franchise has re-shaped its entire roster, basically.

Per ESPN's Brian Windhorst, Wade had been wanting to return to Miami, and Cleveland's coaching staff was considering reducing his playing time. Here's reportedly why that happened.

The complete remodeling of their team will have consequences, but it is apparent that Wade wanted out of the mayhem that is about to occur in Cleveland. Neither player lived up to his advanced billing after joining the Cavs in last August's Kyrie Irving trade, which looks like a mammoth home run for the Celtics. The struggling Cavs hold a 31-22 record, but they were desperately in need of a shakeup: Over the last two months, their defense cratered, they blew leads to bad teams, star big man Kevin Love broke his hand, and players lobbed passive-aggressive missives at one another in press conferences.

Mickey Jones dead; 'Justified,' 'Home Improvement' actor was 76
Jones published his autobiography That Would Be Me - a play on his character Pete's catchphrase in Home Improvement - in 2007. In the 1960s and '70s, he was a drummer with Trini Lopez, Bob Dylan , Johnny Rivers and The First Edition with Kenny Rogers.

Cleveland has been intent in acquiring as many young assets, as they have been by far the oldest team in the league. Even the famed James and Wade chemistry didn't really seem to be there. Derrick Rose, who nearly retired last November, went to a Utah Jazz team that is two games below.500 and two spots out of playoff contention.

Wade - who signed a one-year contract worth $2.3 million with the Cavaliers in September, is enduring the worst statistical season of his career. The Cavaliers get a heavily protected second-round pick in the deal.

The Cavaliers also traded Dwyane Wade back to the Heat in a separate deal for a second round pick. We've got about an hour left until the 3 p.m. deadline.
