    Oturu was the leading rebounder in the contest and ranked second with 22 points. The double-double was his fourth in his past seven games.

    Oturu paced Windy City in minutes, points and rebounds despite coming off the bench in the contest. The double-double was his third in his past five G League games. Oturu is averaging 20.8 points on 64.3 percent shooting and pulling down 9.9 boards per contest in the G League this season.

  • Daniel Oturu: Posts another big G League line

    Oturu finished Windy City's loss to the Charge on Tuesday with 21 points (9-16 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 13 rebounds, two steals and two blocked shots over 31 minutes.

    The double-double was Oturu's second in his past three games and his fifth overall this season. The 22-year-old has scored 20-plus points in seven of 10 G League contests this season and is averaging 20.4 points, 9.8 boards and 1.8 blocks overall. He logged 30 games with the NBA Clippers last year and recently played in three contests with the Toronto Raptors, so there's a chance he gets summoned back to the NBA at some point.

  • Daniel Oturu: Very efficient in blowout win

    Oturu played 25 minutes in Windy City's 123-85 victory over Delaware on Sunday, finishing with 22 points (10-12 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 0-3 FT), seven rebounds and one assist.

    Oturu tied for the team lead in scoring in the contest and missed only two shots from the field. He converted both of his three-point tries but ironically missed all three of his attempts from the free-throw line. Oturu figures to function as one of the G League Bulls' top offensive players for as long as he remains with the team.

The 22-year-old subsequently returned to the G League and rejoined Windy City, where he played in seven games during November. Oturu has looked good with the G League Bulls this season, posting per-game averages of 20.1 points, 9.8 boards, 2.2 assists and 2.0 blocked shots while shooting 62.6 percent from the field.

  • Daniel Oturu: Becomes free agent

    Toronto didn't re-sign Oturu after his 10-day contract expired Monday, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.

    The second-year center appeared in three games during his time with Toronto, averaging 3.0 points and 1.7 rebounds in 9.3 minutes. He could rejoin the G League's Windy City Bulls if another NBA team isn't willing to offer him a 10-day deal at some point over the next few days.

  • Daniel Oturu: Signing 10-day with Toronto

    Oturu played for the Clippers as a rookie last year, averaging 1.8 points and 1.6 rebounds in 5.4 minutes over 30 games. The 21-year-old big man has been playing for the G-League's Windy City Bulls this year but will now have an opportunity to contribute for the Raptors, who are currently down several key frontcourt players.

    Oturu came off the bench for the first time this season Sunday, but that didn't stop him from putting up another strong stat line. The 22-year-old has made over half his shots in four straight contests and is averaging 20.3 points over that span.

  • Daniel Oturu: Continues strong play in G League

  • Daniel Oturu: Another big G League line Friday

    Oturu tallied 29 points (12-18 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists, two blocked shots and one steal over 35 minutes in a loss to the Charge on Friday.

    Oturu has endured a roller-coaster experience in his brief time as a pro, moving between four different NBA franchises since being drafted in the second round of the draft in 2020. However, he appears to be settling in with the G League Bulls, as Oturu has registered at least 20 points in each of his four games this season while logging three double-doubles. He's posting strong per-game numbers that include 23.0 points, 11.0 boards, 1.2 three-pointers and 1.5 blocks.

  • Daniel Oturu: Logs double-double with Windy City

    Oturu tallied 20 points (8-18 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 13 rebounds, two assists and a blocked shot across 32 minutes in Windy City's loss to Cleveland on Thursday.

    Oturu was one of the few bright spots for the G League Bulls in an ugly offensive effort during which the team totaled only 55 points through three quarters. The center has led Windy City in scoring in two of three games thus far and has notched two double-doubles on the campaign. He averaged 1.8 points and 1.6 boards in 5.4 minutes per contest with the NBA Clippers last season.

  • Daniel Oturu: Solid again for Windy City

    Oturu tallied 22 points (10-17 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 13 rebounds, one assist and one blocked shot over 31 minutes in Saturday's loss to Fort Wayne.

    Oturu was one of two Windy City players to notch a double-double in the contest, and he paced the team in both scoring. The 22-year-old played in 30 NBA games with the Los Angeles Clippers last season and figures to be featured prominently during the current campaign in his first stint with the G League Bulls.

  • Daniel Oturu: Cut by Chicago

    The Bulls waived Oturu on Oct. 11.

    The second-year center inked an Exhibit 10 deal in late September with the Bulls -- the third different organization he's been a member of during the offseason. He ultimately couldn't make enough of an impression to stick around in Chicago for the start of the season, but he could remain in the organization as a member of the G League Windy City Bulls. Over 30 appearances at the NBA level with the Clippers in 2020-21, Oturu averaged 1.8 points and 1.6 rebounds in 5.4 minutes per contest.

  • Daniel Oturu: Waived by Memphis

    Oturu has been waived by the Grizzlies.

    A former second-year pick in 2020 out of Minnesota, Oturu appeared in 30 games with the Clippers last year averaging 1.8 points and 1.6 rebounds. Before being waived Thursday, the center was previously acquired by Memphis along with Rajon Rondo and Patrick Beverley in exchange for Eric Bledsoe.

  • Grizzlies' Daniel Oturu: Traded to Memphis

    Oturu was was traded to the Grizzlies on Sunday, along with Rajon Rondo and Patrick Beverley, in exchange for Eric Bledsoe, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    The 2020 second-round pick didn't make much of an impact as a rookie, appearing in just 30 games and logging double-digit minutes only five times. He may have a difficult time finding a larger role in Memphis, where he'll compete for minutes with a loaded big man rotation that already features Steven Adams, Jaren Jackson, Brandon Clarke, Xavier Tillman, and Killian Tillie. Oturu took the court for the Clippers' Summer League team Sunday, but given the transaction he'll likely be shelved for the remainder of play in Las Vegas.

  • Clippers' Daniel Oturu: Double-doubles in loss

    Oturu recorded 13 points (5-21 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block across 37 minutes off the bench in Sunday's loss to the Thunder.

    The rookie second-round pick hasn't been part of head coach Tyronn Lue's rotation this season, but he received a hefty dose of playing time in the season finale with the Clippers resting most of their regulars. He showed a few glimpses of his potential, but Oturu also showed just how raw he is -- he made just five of his 21 shots. He's not expected to be part of the Clippers' rotation come playoff time.
