Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade is on his way out of the NBA at the conclusion of the 2018-19 season, passing the torch to the next generation of dynamic guards to shine. One of those young stars who is looking to take Wade's place atop the mountain is Utah Jazz stud Donovan Mitchell.

In an interview with Alex Kennedy of HoopsHype, Mitchell dished on how Wade is helping not only on the court, but away from the hardwood as well:

With the advice he’s given me, a lot of the on-court advice has been more technical stuff like improving my footwork, slowing down, getting to the free-throw line, using fakes and things like that, which have definitely helped me throughout this year. It took me a while to fully grasp what he was talking about this year, but I think I’m starting to get a lot of it now and use what he told me. As far as off-court advice, he’s been so successful in life. I’m trying to understand how to be a businessman. I’m 22 years old, but I’m partnered with BodyArmor and adidas and all of these different brands, so you have to understand how to be a businessman on top of just being an athlete. He’s helped with that. I’ve just enjoyed the experiences we’ve had together. He and I connected a while back and we’ve met up several times, and we talk all the time. It’s pretty special having him as a peer, for sure.

After averaging 20.5 points per game as a rookie last season, Donovan Mitchell has seen that number rise to 23.5 in his second campaign. It's a rise that isn't all that dissimilar to Wade, who was at 24.1 PPG by his second year in the league. The parallels in on-court style between the two does exist, with Mitchell now given the opportunity to carry on what Wade helped to create.
