Wade, Dean Kansas St.  6'8" 225 SF SR.  Wade is one of the most skilled players in this Draft. He doesn't get much hype but Wade is a solid forward that finished fourth in the Big 12 in box score plus/minus in 2017-18 before a season of nagging foot injuries in 2018-19. He averaged 12.9 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game on his way to being named First Team All Big-12. ...Wade took a big step forward since his freshman season and he now is nailing 41% of his three-point shots. His 1.75-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio (career) is point guard-ish. ...He shot 78.9% FT in 2018-19. ...Wade is not going to dazzle anyone with his running or jumping or quickness. He is a skilled player that is worth exploring. ...We do not expect Wade to be drafted. 


Good Advice: In 2009, the 44th pick in the NBA Draft was Chase Budinger. We advised, "Draft Danny Green."
