At age 35, with three NBA championship rings and a legacy to protect, Dwyane Wade isn’t into rocking the boat.

So while his future with the Bulls now feels like a staring contest between the future Hall of Famer and the front office, it’s actually more of a waiting game for Wade. He has $24 million reasons to be a good soldier when training camp starts next week. And he already has been the top of the mountain — which continues to elude Bulls general manager Gar Forman and vice president of basketball operations John Paxson after a series of missteps.

All eyes will be on Wade as he enters his 15th season, with the 6-4 hometown kid’s stay in Chicago possibly nearing its end. After fellow guard Jimmy Butler was dealt to Minnesota in a draft-night trade, Wade — who had exercised his $23.8 million option for the 2017-18 season — made it known in his circles that he wanted a buyout. According to one source, however, he has not gone to the front office with that request.

Don’t expect that to change. According to the same source, Wade is hoping the Bulls approach him first — with a suitable monetary amount.
