Following a disappointing loss to the LA Clippers, the Golden State Warriors have decided to send Trayce Jackson-Davis back to the G-League. With the team’s next game scheduled for Wednesday, Jackson-Davis will be available to play for the Santa Cruz Warriors on Tuesday against the Ontario Clippers. The specifics of the roster move were outlined in the Warriors’ announcement.
“The Golden State Warriors have assigned center/forward Trayce Jackson-Davis to the team’s G League affiliate, the Santa Cruz Warriors, it was announced today. Jackson-Davis is expected to play in Santa Cruz’s game tomorrow night against the Ontario Clippers at Toyota Arena (7 p.m. PST tipoff). In three games (all starts) with the Santa Cruz Warriors this season, Jackson-Davis is averaging 19.0 points, 8.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.0 steal and 1.3 blocks in 27.7 minutes per game. Jackson-Davis has appeared in 13 games with Golden State, averaging 3.0 points and 1.8 rebounds in 7.9 minutes per game.”
Trayce Jackson-Davis is expected to be recalled for Golden State’s upcoming game against the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday. However, in the meantime, the decision to have him with the G-League team for the Tuesday game against the Ontario Clippers is aimed at providing valuable game reps. Given limited opportunities at the NBA level, the Warriors prioritize Jackson-Davis’s development in the G-League, ensuring he receives consistent minutes for ongoing progress.
