Dwyane Wade’s son Zaire Wade is following in his footsteps when it comes to making his hoop dreams a reality.
Zaire was officially drafted to the Utah Jazz’s G League team, the Salt Lake City Stars. Prior to Zaire being drafted, there were talks about him possibly joining the team. Dwyane, who is part owner of the Utah Jazz, shared the moment Ziare learned that he was selected by the team and said, “Wade Legacy Continues…Proud Dad moment!”
Zaire was the 10th overall pick in the draft. According to The Salt Lake Tribune, Zaire was reportedly the 296th-ranked prospect in the 2021 recruiting class. He attended Sierra Canyon along with Bronny James, then went to Brewster Academy. He received offers from different colleges but later decided not to go that route.
It was noted that players are not allowed to sign directly to G League teams, and they have to be drafted by the league.
