The NBA lockout has left Dwyane Wade jobless, possibly for a long time -- but one of his former employers would welcome him back with open arms ... none other than Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Turns out D-Wade used to sling chicken back in the day, and since he tweeted last week he was looking for a job ... KFC thought they'd make him an offer he couldn't refuse.

The General Manager of KFC fired off a letter to D-Wade and said that while they couldn't pay him in the manner in which he had become accustomed, they would make a donation to Colonel's Scholars in his honor.

Who can say no to The Colonel?
