Where will Flash sign this offseason?
A noted basketball insider operating out of China has learned that the Xinjiang Flying Tigers of the CBA are readying a "monster" contract proposal for next season, in a attempt to lure him away from a bench role in the NBA. The timing couldn't be any better considering Wade is currently embroiled in a tour of China to promote his sneaker deal with Li-Ning, a company that offered a lifetime sponsorship.
Wade has notified the Miami Heat that he is unsure of his options, after hearing his clubs preliminary pitch. Dwyane conveyed that in a message to the Associated Press:
"When I get back from China, I'll focus on that," Wade said. "Right now, I'm focused on the game after basketball. Whatever happens in basketball, it happens. I've done everything that I can to this point to put myself that I'm in this position I am today, where I can do something that hasn't been done globally yet. The basketball will take care of itself. I'll sit down and figure that out once I get back from this tour at some point."
Wade has many options at his disposal. He can either continue plying his trade at highest alongside his peers, for however long, or he can bolt to China, a move that would help him transition into retirement and broaden his brand. Tough decisions lie ahead.
