Zaire Wade transfers schools; Dwyane Wade reacts after frustration with Sierra Canyon coach
NBA legend Dwyane Wade’s son Zaire Wade is leaving Sierra Canyon high school for Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire. Wade reacted to the news on Instagram:
Zaire wasn’t getting a lot of playing time at Sierra Canyon and decided to transfer. D-Wade said last month on NBA on TNT he doesn’t want anything to do with Sierra Canyon’s head coach Andre Chevalier.
Via 247 Sports:
247Sports basketball insider Evan Daniels spoke to the younger Wade last month about his basketball journey and the type of influence and guidance he receives from his famous father.
“Growing up he had three offers and I think Marquette was the best one,” Zaire Wade told 247Sports. “Me right now, I have a [a few] offers so there’s a lot of similarities that we’ve had growing up.
“He just tells me that all the five-stars and having a lot of offers, that doesn’t matter. There’s a lot of guys in the NBA who have had that same story. There’s not a lot of LeBron’s coming out of high school that are superstars right away. It takes time. It’s a marathon not a sprint.”
Zaire was primed for a stellar senior season but he tore a ligament in his right ankle and was forced to miss a significant portion of the season.
With Zaire leaving Sierra Canyon, Bronny James–LeBron James’ son–won’t get to throw lobs to Zaire anymore.
Odds are Zaire will get to the NBA like his dad.
