Lindell Wigginton of Milwaukee Bucks becomes 2nd Nova Scotian to score in a NBA game – Halifax
Nova Scotia native Lindell Wigginton is the second Nova Scotian to score in a NBA game.
Wigginton, a guard from Dartmouth, N.S., has signed a two-way contract with the Milwaukee Bucks. Previously, he played for the Hamilton Honey Badgers of the Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL).
He is the first player to sign a standard NBA contract from the CEBL, the league says.
Wigginton scored his first two points for the Bucks on Thursday night during the fourth quarter of a game against the Golden State Warriors.
He finished the game playing more than five minutes and added a steal to go along with his basket.
The Bucks ended up winning that game 118-99.
Bedford’s Nate Darling of the Charlotte Hornets was the first Nova Scotian to play for the NBA, and later score, last year.
