Wade Will Listen to Overseas Options

MIAMI (AP) — Dwyane Wade says he can still hope for NBA games by Christmas. He also knows there’s a slim chance of that wish coming true.

The Miami Heat guard says he and his agent are now willing to begin listening to any possible offers for him to play internationally if the NBA season gets completely washed out by the ongoing labor impasse.

Thursday was the 140th day of the lockout, which turned even uglier earlier this week when talks completely broke down and the players began taking their case to courts.

Wade says he’s staying busy. He was working Thursday on a new Gatorade ad campaign that gets launched early next year. On Friday, he flies to Nike’s headquarters. He’s also working out with teammates — just in case.
