Bronny James and Zaire Wade debut for Sierra Canyon in China


Sierra Canyon’s basketball team is on a 12-day trip to China, and social media is buzzing about the debuts of freshman Bronny James, the son of LeBron James, and senior Zaire Wade, the son of Dwyane Wade.

The Trailblazers haven’t played any games locally since the arrival of the two this summer. The pair instead have seen their first action on their new team on the school-sponsored trip to China, which had been in the works for several months out of appreciation for 7-foot-3 junior Harold Yu, an exchange student from China who also plays for the Trailblazers.

Sierra Canyon is playing games against other Chinese high school teams and arrived on Tuesday. The Trailblazers played Saturday night (early morning, California time) in Lishui.

Sierra Canyon has also picked up several top transfer students who are on the trip. The Trailblazers have put together a national schedule for next season and could end up attracting crowds and interest similar to the days of the Ball brothers at Chino Hills.
