Even though Dwyane Wade is retired from the game of basketball, the All-Star guard is still one of the hottest names on the market. It appears the next job he takes will be for a broadcasting network.

Wade had an incredible farewell tour this past season, which ended in Brooklyn with all his friends and family at the Barclays Center.

This might seem too early for television networks to contact Wade for an opening, but it certainly makes sense. Over the course of his career, the three-time champion became one of the most loved players in the league.

Andrew Marchand of TheNew York Post is reporting that ESPN and TNT both want to sign Wade to their respective network.

It won't be the first time that two sides are vying for Wade's services, especially when you consider the abundance of offers he use to receive in free agency.

From The New York Post

Dwyane Wade is the biggest free agent in NBA broadcasting, and he could be the top target for a potential ABC/ESPN “NBA Countdown” shakeup.

What is already certain is both ESPN and TNT are courting Wade, sources have told The Post. The two networks are preparing pitches for the just-retired Wade to be a studio analyst later in the current playoffs.

Wade definitely has the persona and following to be a major asset to either company.

It'll be up to the future Hall of Famer to decide whether he wants to relax in his first year of retirement or join the broadcasting business.
