Earlier this year, Dwyane Wade became part owner of the Utah Jazz back in April.
“As a businessman, entrepreneur, and investor, I bring a lot to this partnership outside of my basketball experience,” Wade said. “I’m excited to help take the Utah Jazz to the next level.”
Before accusations of nepotism surface, it should be noted that 19-year-old Zaire has been making noise in the high school basketball scene ever since he became a member of Sierra Canyon High School, located in California. Zaire played alongside another future NBA Hall of Famer’s son, LeBron James Jr., referred to as Bronny.
According to The Spun, Zaire, a three-star combo guard, chose to attend Brewster Academy in New Hampshire for a post-grad year as he looked over whatever options he would have for pursuing a career playing basketball. Although the guard received several offers from a handful of college programs, he has decided to go the route of signing with the G-League to give himself the best chance to make an NBA team.
