Lauderdale, Ira Winderman cited SneakerWatch.com as saying it "has received confirmation that [Heat G] Dwyane Wade will no longer be repping Jordan Brand.” Wade on Friday said, “We're still negotiating, until you get to the point where you decide which way to go. There's many shoe companies that obviously know that I'm up this summer. But I still have the respect for and the obligation and the willingness to sit down and [talk] to the company I'm with” (South Florida SUN-SENTINEL, 9/7).
