Dwyane Wade will be an on-screen analyst with ESPN on ABC during this year's NBA Finals broadcast.

The Heat's three-time champion guard will join the network's broadcast team for pre-game and halftime shows for Games 2 and 3 between the Warriors and Cavaliers, who are led by Wade's former Miami teammate and close friend LeBron James. If the series stretches to six or seven games, Wade will be on hand for those broadcasts as well.

Wade has appeared in five NBA Finals, winning in 2006, 2012 and 2013 and appearing in four consecutive Finals from 2011-14. Besides James, Wade's former Heat teammate James Jones will also appear in this year's title round for the Cavaliers. 

Earlier in the postseason, Chris Bosh—the third member of Miami's former "Big Three"—also appeared as a studio analyst, filling in for Shaquille O'Neal on TNT's May 12 broadcast.
