Zaire Wade is the son of former NBA great and Miami Heat legend, Dwyane Wade, who was recently inducted to the NBA 75. Zaire Wade played high school ball at Sierra Canyon and Brewster Academy, and was regarded by numerous recruiting services as a mid-tier prospect for college basketball.
Zaire Wade elected to bypass college to play in the NBA G-League, and he was selected in the first round of the 2021 NBA G-League Draft by the Salt Lake City Stars. Zaire Wade is most likely a long shot to be selected in the 2022 NBA Draft, but his ability to knock down jump shots could enable him to compete for a roster spot in the NBA someday.
