Dwyane Wade may be heading back to the Midwest. According to Jordan Schultz, the Milwaukee Bucks are becoming a legitimate option for the future Hall of Famer.
League source: Dwyane Wade becoming a Milwaukee Buck is "real" possibility.

This makes perfect sense. In a vacuum, there is very little about this potential deal to pick apart. This is a near perfect fir. The Bucks can use Wade and Wade would certainly fit in well with Milwaukee.
The Milwaukee frontcourt already consists of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jabari Parker and Greg Monroe, which certainly appears strong. The backcourt of Khris Middleton and Michael Carter-Williams has talent, but is a lot less certain.
Wade would certainly be a stabilizing force. On top of being a future Hall of Famer and strong veteran leader, Wade remains an effective player. In 74 games last season, he averaged 19 points a night.
Additionally, Wade is familiar with that part of the country. He is from Chicago and went to Marquette, which is in Milwaukee.
With that said, it is awfully hard to imagine Wade playing anywhere but Miami. With all due respect to LeBron James and past legends like Tim Hardaway and Alonzo Mourning, Wade is the best, most important player in the history of the Miami Heat franchise.
Wade certainly wouldn’t be the first great athlete to finish his career in another uniform. Still, seeing him playing for any team but the Heat would take some getting used to.
