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.
