The Cleveland Cavaliers have officially added Dwyane Wade, the team announced.

Wade cleared waivers Wednesday and signed a contract for the reported veteran's minimum - $2.3 million.

"There's no better place to be right now to continue to play and compete at the highest level," Wade posted in a tweet. "I look forward to reuniting and playing alongside my brother LeBron (James). We've already won two championships together and I hope we win a third."
