With a backcourt suddenly stacked with young and athletic players, Dwyane Wade likely would have been squeezed for minutes. In exchange for the guard, the Cavaliers will receive a second-round pick.

For what it's worth, Windhorst's colleague Dave McMenamin reports that James was, in fact, consulted before the Cavs chose to trade his close friend Wade back home to the Miami Heat.

The Cavs brought in Rodney Hood and George Hill in a three-way deal with the Utah Jazz and Sacramento Kings as well as Jordan Clarkson in a separate trade with the Los Angeles Lakers. Wade, his representative and LeBron James were reportedly consulted. However, after a number of the National Basketball Association trade deadline moves [VIDEO] were complete, the Cavs made a very surprising move.

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

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.

James went on Instagram to endorse the move for one of his best friends, posting "truly happy for my brother @dwyanewade!"

For many years, it appeared that two of the best players to come out of Chicago in the last generation in the National Basketball Association would be calling one place their home for the majority of their careers. After initially beginning his Cavs tenure as a starter, the 3-time National Basketball Association champion moved to a reserve role and averaged 11.2 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 23.2 minutes over the course of 46 games.
