Dwyane Wade Leaves Jordan Brand for Chinese Brand Li-Ning?

Conflicting things keep popping up in regards to this, such as welcome tweets that have been removed, Wade showing up to media day in a pair of Jordans and other miscellaneous things.  But Wade did issue a statement that he and Jordan had parted ways mutually and he is moving forward.  It looks as if Li-Ning is trying to keep pace with Nike, who has made huge impacts in Li-Ning’s home country of China with athletes like Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Kevin Durant.  They are also to trying to keep the gap between them and other brands like Peak and Anta from closing in more.  Wade being another superstar could very well help that as well as hopefully make the impact in the United States that Li-Ning has been trying to make happen for sometime.  Do you think this is a good move for these parties?  Will it help Li-Ning grow globally? Will this make Wade more popular in China [and other Asian markets]?  Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
