Warriors re-assign Kosta Perovic to D-LeaguePosted by Inside Hoops
The Golden State Warriors have re-assigned center Kosta Perović to the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA Development League, Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Chris Mullin announced today.
Perović, 23, was previously assigned to the Jam on November 18 before being recalled on January 6. During his most recent sojourn with Golden State, Perović saw action in one game on January 19 at Milwaukee. He finished with four points, four rebounds and a block in seven minutes.
During his previous stint in the D-League, Perović appeared in 19 games (nine starts), averaging 8.6 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.37 blocks in 22.1 minutes per contest.
Perović is the second Warriors player to be assigned to the D-League since the current affiliation system began during the 2005-06 season. Under the system, NBA teams can assign up to two players who are rookies or in their second season to their D-League affiliate. Players can stay with the D-League team for as long as the team wishes, and be recalled back to the NBA at any time. However, a player can only be sent to the D-League a maximum of three times during the season.
