Moreover, Cavs have crossed their cap limit and the team is in such a situation that it in order to get free agents it can only use mini-MLE worth $3.5 million. Since it has passed luxury tax threshold, it can?t opt for a sign-and-trade for Wade.

Moreover, Wade is reportedly miffed about the fact that he was sidelined by Heat as the team had given priority to other free agents like Kevin Durant and Hassan Whiteside over him.
