Tre Mann dropped a career-high 30 points in G League assignment




 

Oklahoma City Thunder rookie Tre Mann on Tuesday became the 31st different player in the NBA G League this season to score at least 30 points in a game on assignment with OKC Blue.

Mann finished with a career-high 30 points, three assists, two rebounds and two steals during a 123-111 win over the Agua Caliente Clippers. He went 12-of-17 from the field, including 4-of-7 from 3-point range, in 34 minutes of work.

The assignment was his sixth appearance with the Blue. He had each element of his offensive game working, from finishing inside to shooting from beyond the arc. He used his athleticism and speed to create open looks for himself and had a number of easy drives into the paint.

With playing time, potentially, limited with the Thunder, the organization outlined a plan for Mann ahead of the season. He will spend portions of the season with the OKC Blue, a plan designed to maximize his development, head coach Mark Daigneault said.

The opportunity to play with the Blue will give him a great chance to continue his development and fine-tune aspects of his game with playing time limited in OKC.

He is averaging 13 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.4 assists with the Blue.
