Dwyane Wade‘s playing career is coming to an end and the 13-time All-Star would like to own an NBA team. The Heat would be his first choice, though owner Micky Arison has shown no interest in selling, so a minority ownership role appears to be the only available way to own a piece of the team he helped lead to three championships.
If Wade joins the franchise in such a role, he wants to have an impact in personnel decisions, as he tells Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.
“You want to learn that side,” Waid said of the front office. “You want to be a continued part of helping the game grow. For me, I would love to be a continued part of helping this organization grow.”
Wade added that he wouldn’t need to have final say on decisions, telling Jackson that he would want to have that “pressure” on him.
