SALT LAKE CITY – Zaire Wade buried a three-pointer for his first made field goal as a member of the Salt Lake City Stars.

The Stars played the Oklahoma City Blue on Friday, November 5.

With 1:50 remaining in the first half, Wade knocked down a corner three for the first points of his G League career.

Wade is the son of Utah Jazz part-owner Dwyane Wade.

At halftime, the Stars trailed 57-36.

Wade had three points on 1-2 shooting, including 1-1 from beyond the arc. He added one steal during his first eight minutes on the court.

The Stars, the developmental affiliate of the Jazz selected Wade with the 10th pick of the 2021 G League Draft.

“I think my biggest thing is not necessarily to prove everybody else wrong, but just proving myself right,” Wade recently said. “I know how hard I’ve worked over the past years, especially this summer to be blessed to have this opportunity from the Stars.”

Considered a solid Division I prospect, Wade had scholarship offers to Rhode Island, Nebraska, Depaul, South Carolina, and Toledo before entering the G League Draft.

High school graduates can declare for the G League Draft but are unable to be called up for service with an NBA team until they are a full year removed from high school.

Rather than hoping to improve his game through the college ranks, Wade opted to throw his name into the G League Draft where he was selected by the Stars last month.

Now, the 6-foot-3 170-pound guard will develop under the tutelage of coach Nathan Peavy and the Stars management staff.
