In a recent interview, Dwyane Wade was asked about Pat Riley's future with the Miami Heat. The veteran General Manager has been credited with the franchise's revival, as the Heat are 2 games away from NBA finals. This is what Wade had to say about Riley's future - 

“Look, I’ve heard him say a lot of things over my time. He said he wanted to build a team to get back to the championship. I see Riley just being there. That doesn’t mean someone else won’t eventually come in.”

In other NBA news update, Dwyane Wade then got asked about Riley's successor, and how the Miami Heat would approach replacing someone who has added so much value to the franchise during his tenure. On that topic, Wade was quoted saying - 

"Who’s going to be the next person to be president of the team? They got to get to that point where they start molding somebody. Because I don’t think the Heat they’re going to bring anybody in from the outside. So it has to be somebody inside."

He added further-  

“So who’s next? I don’t know if they’re molded someone yet or not.”
