In today’s NBA Summer League, the Golden State Warriors lost to the Los Angeles Lakers 77-100, suffering a two-game losing streak in the summer league, and two huge defeats. Although they lost the game, the Warriors’ rising backcourt star Lester Quiñones showed strong competitiveness in the game. He played 24 minutes and 27 seconds and shot 6 of 13 from the field. 3 of 6 from beyond the arc, 4 of 6 free throws, scored a team-high 19 points, 5 rebounds and 1 steal. He was the best player in the team. Had it not been for his crazy output on offense, the Warriors would have lost even more.
Quiniones was the undrafted pick in this year’s draft. The Warriors scooped up the former Memphis backcourt general on a two-way contract after he was undrafted. It seems that the new backcourt star from Dominican quickly adapted to the team’s environment after arriving, and he also quickly showed good strength.
Last season, Quiniones played a stable overall performance in the NCAA game. He represented Memphis University in 33 appearances, averaging 27.2 minutes per game, averaging 10 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.1 blocks, and 1.4 turnovers. , shooting 44.9% from the field, 39% from three-point range, and 75% from the free throw line. In terms of characteristics, he is a very good puzzle-type player, with good outside shooting ability and certain defensive ability. Overall, his combat effectiveness is very high.
If he can continue to maintain such an efficient state, it is estimated that his two-way contract is still very stable, and he may even have a chance to hit a standard contract and challenge the Warriors’ rotation in the new season.
