Trey Wade is a tough, physical swingman that recently transferred to Nevada. He has had some good games for Wichita State at times, but he didn’t quite put up the numbers that were expected of him.
Also, he will really need to improve his jump shot and be more assertive on offense. Recently, he transferred to play at Arkansas. He is a rotation player for them, though he rarely ever shoots the basketball, and he’s asked to be more of a defensive specialist at the collegiate level. He will probably not end up playing in the NBA, but his size, motor, and defensive skills could allow him to compete for a roster spot in the G-League or overseas when his collegiate career ends.
