The Warriors temporarily assigned veteran guard Cory Joseph to the Santa Cruz Warriors in the G League, only to recall him a few hours later. This move is likely aimed at providing him with additional practice time.
Joseph, 32, joined Golden State for the first time this season, signing a one-year deal in July. Despite his limited appearances in just four games, he has averaged less than a point per game.
Cory Joseph has faced challenges, including a back issue early in training camp, and tough competition for minutes in the backcourt. Chris Paul, Gary Payton II, and Moses Moody have all been competitive, if not ahead, of Joseph on the depth chart.
Having spent the last two-plus seasons with the Pistons, Joseph played in 62 games last year, averaging 6.9 points and 3.5 assists. Since being the No. 29 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, he has also had stints with the Spurs, Pacers, Raptors, and Kings.
