Last week, Shams Charania from Athletic and Stadium reported that Salt Lake City Stars, the Utah Jazz affiliate, have reconciled with Zaire Wade. The son of future Hall of Fame member and Jazz co-owner Dwyane Wade.
In a video the happy dad shared on IG, Zaire is seen signing the contract and expressing his enthusiasm.
âOhhh! Here it is. Slim. Sign.”
âI feel good, I feel confident. I just signed the standard player contract for the G League. October 11, 2021. 19 years old. Yes sir.”
Zaire previously played at Sierra Canyon High School in California with LeBron James’ son, Bronny. He was finally transferred in 2020 to Brewster Academy in New Hampshire. Sadly, much of his season was lost when he tore a ligament in his right ankle.
Wade has received college offers from schools such as Toledo, South Carolina, DePaul, and Rhode Island. However, he chose to take an alternative route.
This is great news for Zaire and the rest of Wade. However, he did not do so without grumbling from the public, who think he only has the opportunity because his father is part owner of the Utah Jazz.
So, of course, the Wade family heard this public criticism and took to Instagram Live last week to respond to this criticism. On Instagram Live, Zaire said they will not take this opportunity for granted and are ready for the next step.
â100%,â he said.
â100% that I am ready. I am preparing for this moment. I know nobody saw it, but like you [Dwyane Wade] told me that the work could go unnoticed, but not the results. So I don’t stumble, I’m ready.
He added, âHey Utah, I’m ready to go out and get down to business. This opportunity, I will seize it and exploit it to the maximum.
The NBA G League is scheduled to start on October 29.
