Dwyane Wade has often talked about wanting to own an NBA team. The time is now.
Wade is becoming a part-owner of the Utah Jazz.
Wade has compiled a large portfolio of business ventures during his post-basketball career and is now set to add NBA team ownership to that list.

Wade led the Miami Heat to three NBA championships and is the team’s all-time leader in points, assists, steals, games, minutes played and many other statistical categories.
Heat owner Micky Arison congratulated Wade in a tweet and said there were talks about having him join Miami’s ownership after his retirement, adding he is “disappointed” that didn’t ultimately happen.
I want to congratulate Dwyane on his recent announcement. We had discussed having him join our ownership group after his retirement but he was not prepared to commmit at the time. Of course I am disappointed that he didn’t reconsider. 1/2— Micky Arison (@MickyArison) April 16, 2021
Having said that I wish him good luck and much success with the Jazz. To me Dwyane will always be a HEAT lifer. 2/2— Micky Arison (@MickyArison) April 16, 2021
