[Wade: I don’t want to be president yet. As a player, I don’t fully understand business matters.] On September 24, Beijing time, Wade accepted an interview with the media. When talking about helping the Heat recruit Jimmy Butler in the 2019 offseason, Wade said: "I have recommended a lot of people with Riley over the years. I am very happy that Jimmy is suitable for the Heat because many of the people I recommend are not. It produces good results, but you have never heard of them."
"To be the president of the team, you must understand related matters. I can recommend players to Riley, but this job is much more than that. You must understand business matters well, and I don’t fully understand as a player. I still Don't want this kind of life."
