The 27-year-old spent the last four seasons in Dallas, where he appeared at both point guard and shooting guard, averaging 20.4 points, 9.7 assists and 1.5 steals in 48 career games.
In 2021, “Dimez” is averaging 24.7 points and 9.7 assists on 54.2 per cent shooting from the floor through 18 regular season games. The Cleveland, Ohio native ranks 15th in the NBA 2K League in points per game and 13th in assists per game.
Maurice “ReeceMode” Flowers was drafted 42nd overall (third round) by Raptors Uprising GC in the 2020 NBA 2K League Draft. The second-year pro averaged 12.6 points, 3.7 assists and 1.4 steals during his rookie season, while also ranking fourth in the NBA 2K League in three-point percentage (66.3 per cent).
In 2021, “ReeceMode” is averaging 12.2 points, 4.3 assists and 0.8 steals through 18 regular season games.
