The Zhejiang Golden Bulls are ready and willing to make Dwyane Wade the highest-paid basketball player in China.

The 12-time All-Star guard has reportedly been offered a three-year deal worth $25 million to compete overseas, according to Chinese media reports, as reported by ESPN.

Wade remains without a contract after spending the 2017-18 season with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat. The Heat can only offer the 36-year-old their mid-level exception of $5.3 million to try to keep him in South Beach.

He averaged 12 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 3.1 assists upon returning to Miami midseason. Those numbers jumped to 16.6 points, 4.2 boards, and 3.6 dimes during the team's opening-round playoff series against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Wade inked a lifetime deal with apparel company Li-Ning last week and was recently on tour in China promoting the brand.

The Golden Bulls ended the year with a 20-18 record. The franchise has been home to such former and current NBA players like J.R. Smith, Eddy Curry, and Ivan Johnson.
