Let’s hope Gabrielle Union doesn’t mind giving up the Miami sun for some Chicago wind! Her hubby Dwyane finally picked which team would end his free agency on July 6, and we’re pretty shocked! “This was not an easy decision, but I feel I have made the right choice,” Chicago-native Dwyane told AP in a statement. “Watching the Bulls growing up inspired me at an early age to pursue my dream of becoming a basketball player. The Blue Island Recreation Center. I have never forgotten where I came from and I am thankful to have an opportunity to play for the team that first fueled my love of the game.”
The Miami Heat desperately wanted to keep their 13-year veteran, and the Denver Nuggets offered him $52 million to come play with them, but he forwent the legacy and the money to move back to his hometown, and a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY the Bulls have LeBron James to thank for it.
“Dwyane saw his best friend LeBron go back home and win a championship and Dwyane wants to do the same thing for his hometown,” the insider explained. “Chicago trading Derrick Rose opened up the chance for this to happen. He didn’t want to play the games Miami was playing with him so he talked with LeBron and LeBron told him that it would be something to definitely consider and Dwyane took it to heart and has decided that the Bulls are his future.”
