Dwyane Wade Offered $2 Million Monthly Salary to Play in China
Could Dwyane Wade be taking his talents to the Middle Kingdom? Reports suggest that MV3 has been offered an appealing $2 million-a-month salary to play for a Chinese team during the NBA lockout. It doesn't appear Wade is ready to take the offer, which should make Heat fans sigh in relief, considering we know Wade is prone to injuries.
According to The Chicago Tribune, Wade may have been offered the hefty salary by the Zhejiang Guangsha (AKA The Lions) of the Chinese Basketball Association. Though, the team hasn't confirmed the offer.
However, Wade isn't ready to suit up in the Guangsha's black and gold uniform just yet.
"We are not there yet," Wade said while speaking to China Daily. "We are going to start working out. The time to consider that has not come."
Plus, the CBA is considering a ban on all foreign player who would not commit to playing in the league for a full season. Their season runs from December to May, and Wade would be required to return to the Heat once the lockout is lifted.
