Dwyane Wade has announced full-time assistance for Brittney Griner

In the last few weeks there have increased numbers of people demanding WNBA superstar Brittney Griner released of the Russian prison that she is being kept in.

One of those who is who are calling on her behalf are Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade.

Then, in February of this year, she was detained at the Russian airport when officials believed she was the owner of vape cartridges containing hashish oil.

There is theories that this evidence might be placed on her by the FBI and 

that the whole situation is a ploy of Russian the president Vladimir Putin to gain some advantage over America

The arrest occurred around the time Russia was threatening to take over Ukraine 

which resulted in devastating sanctions from America as well as other nations including those from Europe.

Recently, there's an rumor that Russia might be willing to negotiate an exchange of prisoners in conjunction with U.S., which would mean that Griner would eventually be released.

She pleaded guilty to charges brought against her along with some lawyers who believe that this could be a pretext to make a swap of prisoners.
