NEW YORK, Nov. 30, 2012 – The Golden State Warriors have assigned rookie guard Kent Bazemore to the Santa Cruz Warriors, Golden State’s NBA Development League affiliate. The assignment marked the first of Bazemore’s career and the 27th of the 2012-13 NBA and NBA D-League seasons. With the assignment, Bazemore became the first player ever to be assigned from Golden State to Santa Cruz.
Bazemore (6-5, 201, Old Dominion) has appeared in six games for Golden State this season, recording two rebounds, two steals, two blocks and one assist in 10 minutes. Undrafted following a four-year career at Old Dominion, Bazemore is a two-time CAA Defensive Player of the Year (2011, 2012). In 140 NCAA games, he averaged 10.1 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.8 steals and 26.3 minutes and became the CAA’s all-time steals leader (250).
