Baldwin was assigned to the G League on Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
This will be Baldwin's first stint in the G League this year, as the former Vanderbilt guard was assigned to the Texas Legends of the G League on Friday. Prior to his demotion, Baldwin was averaging 5.5 minutes and 2.0 points across 13 appearances with Portland.
Baldwin contributed five points (2-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt), three assists, and one rebound in 12 minutes during Wednesday's 143-100 loss to the Bucks.
Baldwin finished with season highs in scoring, assists, and minutes, but this was likely due to the lopsided score. Having only appeared in seven games thus far this season, Baldwin can be avoided across all formats.
Baldwin managed 15 points (4-7 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 5-6 3Pt), four rebounds and three assists across 23 minutes in the Trail Blazers' 116-83 preseason win over the Suns on Wednesday.
With both Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum getting the night off for rest, Baldwin had an opportunity for some extra run off the bench. He put his preseason-high number of minutes to good use, posting exhibition-best rebound and point totals. The 22-year-old was also one of the Blazers' best player in the summer league this season, but his exact role and allotment of minutes come the regular season remains in flux.
Baldwin provided 14 points (5-13 FG, 2-6 FT), six assists and four rebounds across 20 minutes during the Trail Blazers' 91-73 win over the Lakers in the Las Vegas Summer League championship game Tuesday.
The 22-year-old wrapped up a solid tenure in the desert with the second-highest scoring total for Portland on the night. The 2016 first-round pick finished with averages of 13.4 points (on 45.0 percent shooting), 7.4 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 1.1 steals across 25.4 minutes over seven contests. He'll now look to up his NBA opportunities in the coming season after logging only seven games of regular-season action with the Blazers in the 2017-18 campaign. However, he'll have a steep hill to climb in terms of playing time while navigating a crowded shooting guard depth chart.
Baldwin finished with 14 points (6-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 assists, one rebound and one steal in 28 minutes during Sunday's 95-80 summer league victory over the Celtics.
Baldwin's Vegas fling continued as he double-doubled in the quarter-final victory over the Celtics. Shabazz Napier has now signed with the Brooklyn Nets paving the way for Baldwin to have a crack at becoming the primary backup to Damian Lillard. He is by no means a lock but his play over the past week surely puts him in the prime position.
