The Santa Cruz Warriors have traded Edwin Ubiles to the Springfield Armor for two selections in the 2013 NBA D-League Draft.
The Warriors received a second-round pick and a fifth-round pick in exchange for the 6-foot-6 guard. The fifth-round pick originally belonged to the Warriors, but used it to acquire forward Shawn Taggart from the Armor earlier this season. Taggart would later be waived by the Warriors.
Ubiles was aquired as a returning player from his time last season with the Dakota Wizards. He received a Gatorade Call-Up from the Washington Wizards last season and played in four games in the NBA. He was named the D-League Rookie of the Year and was also selected to the All D-League 1st team last season.
He averaged just 7.8 points and 2.6 rebounds in 14 games this season with the Warriors. His best performance came in a road game against the Maine Red Claws where he notched 17 points and six rebounds in a 120-101 win. He saw his minutes decrease because of the stellar play from Dan Nwaelele and Darington Hobson in recent weeks.
The Warriors now have 11 picks in next year's draft, seven of which are in the first three rounds. The roster is now down to 10 after the trade.
