Bulls' Wade says free agency 'different' today
DENVER -- Chicago Bulls guard Dwyane Wade offered an interesting take on modern-day free agency, saying the NBA is "different" than it used to be in how players court one another.
"The league is different today," Wade said. "The league is all about relationships, player relationships. Obviously presidents and GMs have their job to do to put teams together, but when it comes to free agency, that's player relationships more than anything. It's where an individual wants to go, so you have to feel comfortable with where you're going and who you're going with. And it starts in that process. Maybe you have a relationship with a guy, maybe you don't, but it starts in that process when guys are able to reach out to you and you see."
