Dwyane Wade signs deal with TNT, WarnerMedia

Dwyane Wade may have retired from the NBA last season, but the 16-year veteran will still be as visible as ever during the upcoming 2019 campaign.

According to the New York Post, Wade has signed a "comprehensive, multiyear agreement" with TNT and WarnerMedia that will make him a basketball commentator and producer this season. Wade will join TNT's "Inside the NBA" crew during big events and will also be a regular member of TNT's Tuesday studio coverage with Shaquille O'Neal and Candace Parker.

The move comes after TNT overhauled its Tuesday night programming, scrapping its "Players Only" broadcasts.

In addition to his NBA commentary, Wade will also provide in-studio analysis during the NCAA Final Four and contribute to special projects for Bleacher Report.

"I have great respect for TNT’s team of analysts and their long-standing commitment to quality sports coverage," Wade said, per the Washington Post. "After sixteen seasons in the NBA, I look forward to connecting with my fans in this new role and bringing my own perspective to the game I love."

Wade made his debut with Turner on its coverage of the NBA’s opening night Tuesday.

The exact terms of Wade's deal are unknown.
