Dwyane Wade's Agent Set To Appeal Suspension

Henry Thomas, the agent for Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade, told the Sun Sentinel that he plans to appeal Wade's one-game NBA suspension for Wade's kick to the groin of Charlotte Bobcats guard Ramon Sessions.

While Wade was forced to sit out Friday's loss to the Detroit Pistons, with that part of the sanction not subject to appeal, Thomas told the Sun Sentinel that Wade would appeal the lost wages, which are in excess of $150,000 for the missed game.

"We are doing it on the basis that I don't think the suspension was warranted," Thomas said.

Thomas said the decision to appeal was made in consultation with Wade.

"He felt that it wasn't warranted," Thomas said. "I saw the play and I just don't think that it was."

Thomas is hopeful of a return of the lost wages.

"Absolutely," he said. "The players' association will file the appeal. The money will go in escrow and then when the hearing's held, it's held."

Such reviews can take weeks or even months. Such fines or lost wages often are quietly returned to the players upon appeal.

It may be standard procedure to appeal, but that was not an everyday play, nor was there any doubt it was intentional..

I'm sure his agent is part of the team pushing him to "appeal". Think of it this way.... 20% of 150K is 30K.... that's nothing to Wade but it may be to his agent..... the Players Association will take a cut as well for their effort so it keeps the Agent/Union machine oiled.....

This is a money decision alone so I doubt Wade had much to do with it other than signing the paperwork.
