Dwyane Wade landed on his feet and ended up reunited with LeBron James. He's getting traded back "home" to Miami, where he played for most of his career. This is the reason why, before the Cavs agreed to trade Wade back to the Heat, they let both him and James know.

The Cavs have made the trade deadline their show, orchestrating several blockbuster deals.

Rose, who has played in NY and Cleveland since being traded in the summer of 2016, will be calling Utah home as he's part of a three-team deal with the Jazz and Kings.

Chaos ensued in the minutes that followed, as more trades became public by way of ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, including a deal that sent Dwyane Wade back to the Miami Heat for a second round draft pick.

The Cavs began their shocking overhaul by sending the disappointing Thomas along with forward Channing Frye and one of their two first-round picks to the Los Angeles Lakers for point guard Jordan Clarkson and forward Larry Nance Jr. Iman Shumpert, who was one of the key stars when the Cleveland Cavaliers won their last National Basketball Association title went to the Sacramento Kings, who have the second-worst record in the National Basketball Association.

Wade, Crowder and Rose were new additions this season.

As for Wade's future, he returns to a Heat team that has rebuilt itself as gritty, go-go outfit of reclamation projects and cast-offs just a few years removed from James' time in South Beach. He spent last season with Chicago after 13 seasons and three championships with Miami.

Hood, a 25-year-old shooting guard, is averaging 16.8 points and 2.8 rebounds per game.

Cleveland sits in third place in the East at 31-22.
