Call-Up #6: Renaldo Major to the Warriors
by: Jonathan Givony - President
January 17, 2007
D-League Showcase, Day Two

D-League Showcase, Day One

According to D-League officials here at the Showcase in Sioux Falls, Renaldo Major has been called up by the Golden State Warriors for a 10-day contract. He was scheduled to play today in Sioux Falls, but is already en route to join the depleted Warriors. Patrick O'Bryant will also be joining him. In other news, Jose Juan Barea has been sent down to the D-League and should be in uniform tonight at 7:30.

Golden State currently has only 14 players under contract and have recently found success with D-League swingmen by bringing up Kelenna Azubuike. They are extremely banged up following the injuries to Adonal Foyle and Mickael Pietrus and only went with an 8-man rotation on Monday against the Clippers. To help ease the load, Patrick O'Bryant has also been called back up to Golden State. Major will be the 6th player this year called up by the D-League thus far.

Major is a 6-7 swingman with good athletic ability and very nice scoring instincts from inside the 3-point arc. Hes 24 years old, and seems to have improved rapidly from his collegiate days at Fresno State, where he only averaged 10.7 points per game in a senior year that was cut short by a season-ending suspension. He ironically was cut once by the D-League already, and has spent time in both the USBL and CBA. This year hes averaging 18 points per game, 4.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists on 54% shooting from the field playing with the Dakota Wizards. A true "rags to riches" story, the kind that makes the D-League special.

UPDATE: This callup seemed to make more sense before the Warriors pulled off the blockbuster trade with the Pacers. They still need healthy bodies, though.
