The NBA lockout is in its second week, and players are not working. And one local company is looking to hire the Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade.

Amid the lockout, Dwyane Wade tweeted a question.  He asked if anyone was hiring.  It was probably a joke, but as it turns out, there is at least one company who would like to hire the shooting guard.

The General Manager of KFC US, John Cywinski, sent a letter to Wade in response to his tweet. Wade is a former employee of KFC, and Cywinski says the company would love to have him back on the team. Cywinski says KFC will make a donation in Wade’s name to Colonel’s Scholars, a scholarship program for young people, if Wade will serve as a drive-thru captain at a local KFC. Wade currently makes $15 million a year playing basketball.
