6 foot 10 inch Mawugbe who has spent the past two seasons with Golden State’s affiliate side in the NBA Gatorade League (G-League) hasn’t competed in any of the games till date.

Not playing in such preseason games mainly for young players hurt his chances of making it to the main roster of the Warriors for the 2022-2023 NBA Season. In the California Classic, Mawugbe struggled with staying away from committing fouls.
