Dwyane Wade's basketball future remains undecided at this point. The 36-year-old three-time NBA champion has yet to make a decision on where he'll be playing in 2018-19.

Most expected Wade to return to the Miami Heat for the upcoming season, but it's unclear if that's going to happen.

Wade, who has a major endorsement deal from an apparel company in Asia, could actually have the opportunity to play overseas.

It's unlikely that Wade will take that offer, but it's expected to be a big one.

The Chinese team, the Xinjiang Flying Tigers, are reportedly going to offer him a "monster" contract.

Wade has been overseas in China, promoting his new "Way of Wade 7" shoe with the China-based apparel company Li-Ning.

He spoke about his basketball future during an interview with Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press.

"When I get back from China, I'll focus on that. 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 wouldn't be the first notable NBA player to head overseas to China, but unless the offer is something truly monster like $30-plus million, it seems unlikely that he'd seriously consider it.
