Feb. 8 (UPI) -- Dwyane Wade is heading back to South Beach.
Wade, 36, was averaging a career-low 11.2 points per game this season for the Cavaliers. He started three games and was clocking 23.2 minutes per bout. Wade spent his first 13 seasons with the Heat, making the All-Star team 12 times and winning three championships.
Wade signed a multi-year contract with the Chicago Bulls as a free agent in the summer of 2016, before being waived in September. He signed with the Cavaliers two days later.
The Wade move was one of several pulled off by the Cavaliers before Thursday's 3 p.m. trade deadline. Cleveland also sent All-Star guard Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye and a first-round draft pick to the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.
League sources told ESPN that the Utah Jazz also sent Rodney Hood to the Cavaliers as part of a three-team trade involving Cleveland and the Sacramento Kings. The Jazz shipped Joe Johnson to Sacramento and Cleveland sent Jae Crowder and Derrick Rose to Utah.
Cleveland also received George Hill from the Kings as part of that blockbuster transaction. The Cavaliers are sending Iman Shumpert and a 2020 second-round pick -- from the Heat -- to the Kings as part of that trade.
Hill is averaging 10.3 points, 2.8 assists and 2.7 rebounds per game this season.
