Porter Hoping to Play Big for the Skyforce
Tajuan Porter was averaging double figures in points for the Reno Bighorns through 24 games this season. He got bumped for a D-League legend named Sundiata Gaines who has NBA experience.
As a result, Tajuan Porter has been acquired by the Sioux Falls Skyforce from the available player pool. The 5-7, 155-pound guard averaged 11.2 points and 2.4 assists in 24 games with the Reno Bighorns this season. He averaged 7.9 points and 3.4 assists in 35 games with the Bighorns (20) and Rio Grande Valley Vipers (15) last season. The University of Oregon product is expected to be in uniform for Saturday night’s road game against the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.
No corresponding roster move has been made yet as Anthony Mason, Jr. and Chris Ayer have been beset with injuries over the past week.
