I would like to see Wade being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers, but if will not change things because Wade is an injury prone type of player. I think they can actually trade Kobe to the Washington Wizards in exhange for Arenas and maybe Caron Butler.
For the reason that Kobe Bryant wants to play in a much "weaker" Conference because he cannot make it in the 2nd round of the playoffs if the Lakers will be facing the Phoenix Suns every year.
Buss would take that deal in a heartbeat; they get a top 10 player in Wade to rebuild with, Shaq to have his swan song in L.A., and sell out the Staples Center and keep the celebrities in their courtside seats.
The Lakers are most likely not going to get anyone nearly as good (or marketable) as Wade back when/if they do have to deal Bryant. Honestly, I think Buss is done with Kobe, but one of things that makes him hard to deal from the Lakers P.O.V. is they need someone back who can sell tickets/jerseys and keep the profile of the franchise high in a fickle Los Angeles market.
Miami ... I dunno.
