Whiteside: ‘It’d be great’ if Dwyane Wade Returned to Miami

The respect has endured through the departure and assuredly would be there if there is a return. Hassan Whiteside said as much Saturday when the discussion turned to a possible Miami Heat reunion with Dwyane Wade.

“It’d be great,” Whiteside said at a fundraiser for his Whiteside Foundation. “It’s a three-time NBA champion coming back, coming in and really helping a team out. It would be great.”

That, of course, is if Wade receives a buyout from the rebuilding Chicago Bulls, having joined his hometown team last summer on a two-year deal after a contract impasse with the Heat.

Whiteside played his first two seasons with the Heat alongside Wade and said there would be no concerns about the franchise’s all-time leading scorer being worked into what has become a revised mix under coach Erik Spoelstra.

“He’s a great basketball-IQ guy,” the shot-blocking center said, shortly after Spoelstra and teammates James Johnson and Wayne Ellington arrived at the Miami River Yacht Club. “He can find you on a lob. He can find you on a pick-and-roll situation. He’s a great scorer.”

Norman Powell is also a noteworthy trade chip. The Raptors have already been gauging interest in the 25-year-old guard ahead of the draft, sources tell TSN. After signing a four-year, $42-million extension in the fall, Powell turned in a disappointing third NBA season, losing his starting job in November and then falling out of the rotation altogether.

Although they believe he can bounce back, the team’s depth has made Powell expendable. If they’re going to move him, this might be the best time to do it.
