Twelve-time NBA All-Star guard Dwyane Wade plans to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers once he clears waivers on Kevin Bieksa Authentic Jersey Wednesday, league sources told ESPN. Wade, who agreed to a contract buyout with the Chicago Bulls on Sunday, will be an unrestricted free agent and sign a one-year, $2.3 million veterans minimum deal to reunite with LeBron James, league sources said. Wade's relationship with James, cemented over four seasons and two NBA titles together with the Miami Heat, pushed the Cavaliers past the Oklahoma City Thunder, San Antonio Spurs and Miami in pursuit of Wade. Wade, a three-time NBA champion and MVP of the 2006 NBA Finals, joins a formidable Cavaliers roster with James, Kevin Love, JR Smith and Tristan Thompson. The Cavs will be without injured All-Star point guard Isaiah Thomas until at least JanuaryThe team will initially cut a non-guaranteed training camp invitee to make room for Wade on the 20-man training camp roster, a Cavs source told ESPN. They will need to make an additional move beyond that to make space for him on the 15-man regular-season roster. Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said it will be a challenge with all the new players added to the Cavaliers' roster this offseason, but he and his players are up for it"Anytime you get new pieces and new players, it's always challenging, but I'm up for the challenge, and so are the players," he said. "We will figure it out. It will be a good year for us." Thompson said he expects Wade will fit in well with the Cavaliers' roster. "He's pretty familiar with most of the guys on our team, whether playing against or playing with," he said. "I think he's going to jell pretty well. He's a veteran. He's always been a good locker room guy. We've never heard anything bad. "It would be great for our team to have another championship-mentality player on our team. It's just more pieces to the puzzle." Wade averaged 18 points for the Bulls last season. In 14 seasons, he has averaged 23.3 points, 5.7 assists and 4.8 rebounds a game. Wade, 35, gave back $8 million of his $23.8 million 2017-18 salary to reach a buyout agreement with the Bulls, league sources said. ESPN's Dave McMenamin contributed to this reportThe Minnesota Timberwolves underwent a significant makeover this offseason, and coach Tom Thibodeau expects to learn more about his new-look team during next week's trip to China, where the Wolves will play two games against the defending champion Golden State Warriors in Shenzhen and Shanghai. The Timberwolves, who added Jimmy Butler and other veterans including Jeff Teague and Taj Gibson this summer, are looking to end a 13-year playoff drought"We have been trying different things during our training camp in San Diego," Thibodeau said during a conference call with Chinese media ahead of next week's NBA Global Games. "We have a lot of new faces. The two games in China are a team bonding opportunity for us, and players will get to know each other more." Thibodeau said the new roster combines both valuable playoff experience and much-needed versatility, essential in today's game with so many NBA teams using small lineups. "We need players who can guard different positions and sizes on the court," he said. "We have lots of players on this team right now who can do this, but the biggest challenge remains whether or not we can have balance between our offense and defense." With some blockbuster trades this summer in the Western Conference, Thibodeau made it clear that he expects everyone on the team to play a leadership role, instead of relying on one or two star players. While the China trip is a first for many members of the Timberwolves, it is familiar to Thibodeau, who often traveled to the country while a member of the Houston Rockets coaching staff during Hall of Famer Yao Ming's playing days. The Timberwolves Amos Youth Jersey will open their preseason Saturday against the Los Angeles Lakers
