Lebron James and Dwyane Wade want Juwan Howard to be Michigan’s next head coach

Lebron and D-Wade definitely want Michigan to hire Howard

NBA: All Star Game Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Former teammates of Juwan Howard have become big time supports of his during Michigan’s search to find a new basketball coach.

Chris Webber and Jalen Rose have been vocal in their support, and now Dwyane Wade and Lebron James have made comments about Howard potentially landing in Ann Arbor.

Wade and James both played with Howard during a period where the Miami Heat won two titles and went to four consecutive NBA Finals. What’s interesting is Howard has been an assistant coach for the Heat since 2013, so Wade has had the chance to play with him and then get coached by him as well.

These tweets are a sign of things to come, this isn’t the last commentary from Wade or James about Howard and Michigan.

If Michigan does indeed hire Howard as their next head coach, expect more tweets from Lebron and D-Wade about their former teammate. The approval of Lebron and Wade could be a useful selling point on the recruiting trail for Howard.
