RJ Nembhard a Double-Double Machine in NBA G League

NCAA Basketball: Oklahoma State at Texas Tech

RJ Nembhard may have gone undrafted, but in three NBA G League games so far this season the former TCU guard has had at least a double-double in each game.

Nembhard signed a two-way contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers before the season, meaning that he can go back and forth between the Cavaliers and their G League affiliate, the Cleveland Charge.

On Friday in a 111-110 win over the Windy City Bulls, Nembhard had 28 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists in the victory.


The night before, also against the Bulls, Nembhard did it again. He scored 14 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and had four assists in the 105-88 victory.

Nembhard made his G League debut on Nov. 8, a 126-134 loss to the Wisconsin Herd. Nembhard didn’t just have a double-double that night. He had a triple-double — 17 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists.

Nembhard didn’t participate in the Charge’s opener against the Motor City Cruise on Nov. 6.

Through three games, Nembhard is averaging 19.7 points, 11.7 rebounds and 7.3 assists per game.

He’s made just one appearance with the Cavaliers so far this season, coming on Oct. 22 against Charlotte. Nembhard played two minutes and scored two points in that game.

The Charge are in action again on Tuesday against the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.
