The “Miami Herald” reported on Friday that Chinese Basketball League franchise Zhejiang Guangsha, has denied published reports that they have offered Miami Heat All-Star guard Dwyane Wade a contract for $2 million per month to play for the club in the upcoming season. Wade visited Hangzhou, the city that the team plays in during a promotional tour last week. The Chengdu Daily, reported that Wade had received an offer from the team but an official with the team denied the report.
The guard who helped lead his team to the NBA Finals in June and his agent Henry Thomas, have stated that the All-Star is intrigued by the idea of playing in China if the current NBA Lockout continues into the regular season. Earlier this week NBA Player Association Executive Director Billy Hunter, said that he believes that no games will be played in the Association during the 2011-2012 campaign.
Wade does not seem to be ready to start entertaining options about playing elsewhere if the work-stoppage does suspend the start of the regular season. In an interview with China Daily he said “We are not there yet. We are going to start working out. The time to consider that has not come.”
