It appears that the Dwyane Wade era in Chicago won't last much longer.
The 2006 NBA Finals MVP and the Bulls are expected to reach terms on a buyout agreement within the next few months, according to ESPN's Nick Friedell.
In July 2016, Wade signed a two-year deal worth $47 million -- with a $23.8 million player option in Year 2.
In late June, he exercised the option.
If a buyout happens, Wade would become a free agent.
He is very close with LeBron James, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony.
Anthony reportedly wants to be traded to Houston.
The Warriors open the season against the Rockets on Oct. 17.
Wade's status will be a story worth watching.
The 12-time All-Star will turn 36 years old in January.
