Updated: Sep 8, 2022


NBA DRAFT 2022 PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS BY 11IC BLOG

He was born on May 30, 2003. He is Canadian professional basketball player for the Blazers of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He was five-star recruit and considered as one of the top players in class at Dream City Christian School in Arizona. Shaedon Sharpe also signed with Kentucky but did not play a game in college before leaving for the NBA. He is also selected at the seventh overall in the 2022 NBA DRAFT.


Sharpe played basketball for H. B. Beal Secondary School in his hometown of London, Ontario and led his team to an Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations AAA appearance. He moved to Sunrise Christian Academy in Bel Aire, Kansas, where he had a limited production as a sophomore. For his junior season, Sharpe transferred to Dream City Christian School in Glendale, Arizona and assumed a leading role. He averaged 21.4 points and six rebounds per game in the Grind Session. He competed for UPLAY Canada on the Amateur Athletic Union circuit, with whom he was mentored by Dwayne Washington.


Sharpe graduated early from high school with the intention of redshirting his first year at Kentucky and playing in the 2022–23 season. On February 7, 2022, head coach John Calipari announced that Sharpe would not play for the team in the 2021–22 season after speculation that he would play and enter the 2022 NBA draft, for which he was eligible. On April 21, Sharpe declared for the 2022 draft, forgoing his remaining college eligibility without playing a game.


Sharpe was a consensus five-star recruit and was ranked as the third-best player in the 2021 class by 247Sports and Rivals. He was previously the number one player in the 2022 class before reclassifying. Sharpe was un ranked by major recruiting services early in his high school career and became one of the top players in his class in about one year, in part due to his success at the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League in 2021. On September 7, 2021, he committed to playing college basketball for Kentucky over offers from Arizona, Kansas, Oklahoma State and the NBA G League Ignite. 


Sharpe was selected with the seventh overall pick in the 2022 NBA draft by the Portland Trail Blazers. On July 1, 2022, he signed his rookie scale contract with the Trail Blazers. On July 8th, in his NBA Summer League debut, Sharpe suffered a shoulder injury after under six minutes of play. An MRI later revealed a small labral tear in his left shoulder, and Sharpe was unable to play for the rest of the Summer League.
