Wade says he still uncertain on what role is with Cavs

Wade says he still uncertain on what role is with Cavs

Three games into his Cleveland Cavaliers career, three-time champion Dwyane Wade admitted he is searching for his role with his new team following the Cavs' 114-93 loss to the Orlando Magic on Saturday.

"I'm trying to find it, man," Wade said after scoring five points on 2-for-8 shooting against the Magic. "It's very different, different than I've ever played. Just trying to find my way, as we go on, see how I can be best for this team. Everything's happened so fast. This has been a long, a long week."

Wade and the Cavs fell behind by as many as 37 points to Orlando, which was missing starters Elfrid Payton and Aaron Gordon, dropping their record to 2-1. Wade is averaging 5.3 points on 28 percent from the field and 25 percent from 3-point territory with 3.3 assists per game. He has scored in single digits all three games he has played, something he did only six times in 60 games with the Chicago Bulls last season when he finished with averages of 18.3 points, 43.1 percent shooting, 31.0 percent on 3s and 3.8 assists per game.

What's the biggest difference this season for the 15-year veteran?

"My option," Wade said. "I've always been a [No.] 1 or 2 option. It's just a different game. You got to kind of figure out your way."

Cleveland's No. 1 option, LeBron James, said that integrating Wade is a priority.

"We got to get him going at some point," James said. "That's something we're going to look at and we're all trying to figure it out as well but we got to get him going and hopefully we can do that on Tuesday."
