We already know that Gabrielle Union, who is married to Dwyane Wade, thinks that the Heat legend could play for two or three more years.

Now, another person who is close to Wade has said the same thing.

Tom Crean, a mentor of Wade and a former coach of his at Marquette, said during the Vegas Summer League today that the 2006 NBA Finals MVP has plenty left in the tank.

The following is an excerpt of an article by the Palm Beach Post’s Tom D’Angelo:

As far as Wade’s decision, Crean said: “I think he’ll make his decision based on the different circumstances that come with it. I, for one, hope that he’s going to continue to play. He knows that but I don’t have a vote. I just have an opinion.”

Wade hasn’t announced whether he’s coming back yet. But he has posted photos of him working out on social media.

Will Wade (and for what matter, Udonis Haslem) announce that they will return to the Heat? We know what Union and Crean think.
