Low gets minutes for Mavericks
Derrick Low could dominate games at will at Iolani School, and did so for four years.
At Washington State, he was a fine player who helped lead the Cougars deep into the NCAA Tournament.
But battling for an NBA job is a whole different world for the 6-foot-2 point guard. Low finally got significant minutes in a summer league game for the Dallas Mavericks yesterday. But nothing jumped off Low's stat line except for five fouls. He hit a 3-pointer in the final minute and had no assists in 16 minutes as the Mavs fell to the Golden State Warriors' team 90-73 in the Rocky Mountain Revue.
