Wade, 37, briefly played under Lue with the Cleveland Cavaliers during the 2017-18 season. Although the stint didn’t last a full season, the Heat icon obviously saw Lue as a capable coach.
Before the pair worked together on the Cavs, the two clashed deep in the playoffs.
When Lue was an assistant coach for the Boston Celtics during the 2011-12 season, he and the Celtics met Wade and the Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals.
After a competitive seven-game series, the Heat won the final battle and went on to win the 2012 NBA championship.
In his first head coaching tenure with the Cavs, Lue compiled a 128-83 regular season record.
The former NBA guard’s highlight as a coach came when he led the Cavs franchise to its first NBA title against the Golden State Warriors in 2016.
