Former Siena Star Edwin Ubiles Reports To Golden State Warriors
Edwin Ubiles is one step closer to realizing a lifelong dream.
Ubiles was signed to a partially guaranteed contract on Friday, by the Golden State Warriors. The former Siena star reported to the club over the weekend, where he will try to earn a roster spot.
Ubiles had been playing for Golden State's developmental team, the Dakota Wizards. Ubiles played in five games for the Wizards, averaging 18.6 points, 8.2 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game.
Ubildx was one of three rookies who was invited to training camp over the weekend, along with Dayton's Chris Wright and Gary Flowers, from Southern Miss.
While Ubiles has signed a partially guaranteed contract, if he plays well, he could earn a roster spot and a full-year guarantee.
Ubiles was one of the "Big Three" at Siena, with teammates Ronald Moore and Alex Franklin. It is one of the most talented classes ever to suit up for the Saints.
Ubiles, 25, most recently played for his native Puerto Rico, helping lead them to a gold medal, at the 2011 Pan-American Games.
Ubiles finished his career, third all-time in Siena school history, with 1,939 points and sixth in points per game (14.8). He helped Siena win three Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference titles and earn two NCAA tournament victories.
No Siena player has ever appeared in a NBA game. Most recently, Ubiles' former teammate, Kenny Hasbrouck, was on the Miami Heat roster, back in 2010.
