Zaire Wade, the son of future Hall of Famer Dwyane Wade, on Saturday was selected by the Salt Lake City Stars in the NBA G League draft, the affiliate of the Utah Jazz.

The news of the potential pairing was reported earlier this month as Zaire was expected to join the organization. Dwyane last season became a part-owner of the Jazz and likely helped facilitate the move to bring Zaire to the Stars.

Zaire, 19, previously played his senior year at Sierra Canyon High School before transferring to the Brewster Academy for a postgraduate year in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire. He was teammates with Bronny James, the son of LeBron James, at Sierra Canyon.

The two shared a wholesome moment together after the pick by the Stars was in.

Zaire, who was considered to be a three-star prospect, had received several collegiate offers from programs such as Miami, South Carolina and TCU among others. He will now have the opportunity to spend time within the Jazz’s organization and continue his basketball career.

The Stars begin the regular season on Nov. 5 versus the OKC Blue.
