Here are Wednesday’s assignments and recalls from around the NBA G League:
- The Timberwolves have recalled rookie shooting guard Jaylen Nowell from their G League affiliate, the Iowa Wolves, according to a team press release. Nowell was drafted by the Wolves with the No. 43 pick this summer. The 6’4″ guard out of Washington has appeared in five games for Minnesota. In 15 games for Iowa, Nowell is logging impressive averages of 21.3 PPG on 50% shooting from the floor, 5.3 RPG and 3.4 APG.
- The Bucks have sent forward Dragan Bender to their G League affiliate, the Wisconsin Herd, according to the NBA G League’s website. The forward, drafted No. 4 in 2016 by Phoenix, has played just three games for Milwaukee this season.
- The Bulls have recalled second-year small forward Chandler Hutchison from their G League affiliate, the Windy City Bulls, according to the team’s Twitter. Drafted with the No. 22 pick in 2018, Hutchison has only appeared in nine games for Chicago due to injury. With Otto Porter‘s extended absence dragging into 2020, odds are good Hutchison will see significant time in Chicago this year.
- The NBA G League website notes that the Jazz have assigned rookie guards Nigel Williams-Goss and Miye Oni to the Salt Lake City Stars, their G League affiliate. Williams-Goss has appeared in eight games for the major league club, Oni has logged time in three.
