Rajon Rondo indeed had a free-agent meeting today with the Bulls in Chicago, league sources tell @MarcJSpearsESPN and me

Ramona Shelburne ESPN Senior Writer 

Dwyane Wade, like Dirk, has taken less in each of his last three contracts. At some point that gets difficult. That said, the Knicks will have around $11-12 million after Noah deal. They could create more and get to $16 million in room. But Wade probably wants north of $20 per year after seeing the deals being signed today.
