Dominican Lester Quiñones Shines with Golden State Warriors

Santo Domingo .-Dominican Lester Quiñones is having a great month of February with the Golden State Warriors.

In addition to receiving the chance from coach Steve Kerr, last week he left his dual contract behind to sign a standard agreement with the team that is tenth (29-27) in the Western conference.

Lester will thus remain under a standard contract in the ranks of Golden State until the end of the season and then the possibility of signing a multi-year contract will be open to him.

For this season the shooting guard will be earning 2,433,388 million dollars, being a dizzying leap for the player who will turn 24 years old next November.

The competitive leap has come to Quiñones this season, a year in which he has played 22 games with the Warriors in which he has averaged 5.0 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 12.9 minutes, with a 41, 9% success rate from the triple.

February is being the most successful month for the player, who in the last 10 games averaged 5.5 points in 17.3 minutes of action.

Big step
The Dominican joins the select group of Warriors players who have seen their two-way contract transformed into a standard NBA contract.

What happened with Lester in that organization also happened with Quinn Cook (2017-18), Marquese Chriss (2019-20), Ky Bowman (2019-20), Damion Lee (2019-20), Juan Toscano-Anderson (2020- 21) and Anthony Lamb (2022-23).

The NBA implemented two-way contracts before the start of the 2017-18 season and since then it has given more protection to the franchise that signs them in order to retain its pieces.

The man from Dominican Republic, who was with the Dominican Republic team in the last World Cup, played for the Tigers (Memphis) in the NCAA and was not drafted in 2022, which did not prevent him from making his NBA debut with the Warriors in the 2022-2023 season. playing 4 games.

Quiñones, 1.96 meters tall, demonstrates a more than interesting defensive intensity.
This has significant value, as he has established himself above the Brazilian player, Gui Santos.
Both come from Summer League.


— Perseverance
Quiñones went undrafted out of Memphis in 2022 and spent parts of two seasons with the Warriors and their G League affiliate in Santa Cruz. He was the league’s most improved player in 2023.?
