Dwyane Wade has a major contract offer on the table. It’s not from an NBA franchise, though. The three-time NBA champion has been offered a sizable deal from a team in China.
Wade, who has a lifetime endorsement contract with the Chinese brand Li-Ning, has reportedly been offered a three-year deal by the Zhejiang Golden Bulls.
The contract was rumored to be a “monster” one. Unfortunately for Wade, the numbers don’t seem to match the hype.
Still, it’s a good one. The offer: Three years, $25 million.
News of the contract offer from China to Wade was first reported by Zhang Duo.
The MONSTER OFFER is on the table.

Wade, 36, is unlikely to receive a contract offer of a similar amount from an NBA team this summer. The 12-time All-Star is a free agent after spending the 2017-18 season with the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Miami Heat.
However, it seems unlikely that Wade will seriously consider the offer from the Chinese team. Three years and $25 million is nothing to laugh at, but it’s probably not quite big enough for him to consider a jump overseas when there will be NBA teams interested in his services for multiple seasons.
Wade does have a decision to make, though. Stay tuned for more updates.
