Usman Garuba Making His Mark in the Golden State Warriors’ G-League Squad

Usman Garuba is trying to make his way into the Golden State Warriors in the Development League (G-League). Factors are adding up in your favor. The physical, perhaps the most important, is fulfilled after a significant weight loss. Also the intention of the San Francisco Bay team, which although it seemed to happen to take him to the Eastern tour and was not fulfilled, because they do not stop praising him. And on the field there is direct translation. He continues to improve and scored 22 points (7/8 TC, 3/3 T3 and 3/3 TL), 11 rebounds and 4 assists in the Santa Cruz Warriors’ defeat (127-104) against the Capitanes from Mexico City.

The result is the least important thing in a competition that may not look anything alike week after week. It’s just a showcase for the NBA. And Garuba, in his individual work, does not fail to deliver. He looks finer, as MARCA advanced, after his physical plan and maintains his DNA: strong at the rim, capable of generating through continuation and maximum intelligence to read dangerous balls within the zone.

Although there is another part of the Warriors coach’s statements that open a door… to a different future. “He has to refine his game, find their niche…whether it’s with our team or another,” Kerr added. It is his main drawback, between the signed contract (50 games maximum, which will not be fulfilled, and without Playoffs) and brutal competition with Dario Saric and the surprising rookie Trayce Jackson-Davis.

You have to find your niche whether with our team or with another
