Juwan Staten is headed back closer to home after getting traded from the Santa Cruz Warriors.
The 87ers are an affiliate of the Philadelphia 76ers who are currently 3-31 this season. This could be a better path for Staten to play in the NBA rather than being in the Golden State Warriors organization.
The Delaware 87ers today acquired the rights to Juwan Staten from the Santa Cruz Warriors, in exchange for the 87ers own fifth round pick in the 2016 NBA Development League Draft.
The 5- foot-11,186-pound guard played in 13 games for Santa Cruz this season, where he averaged 8.9 points and 3.7 assists in 29.0 minutes per game. Staten was acquired by Santa Cruz via the affiliate rule from the Golden State Warriors in November. The rookie graduated from West Virginia University in May, where he earned First Team All-Big 12 honors in 2014 and 2015.
Staten will be available to play this weekend in Westchester.
