Daniel Hamilton Already Has 4 NBAGL Triple Doubles

Former UConn star Daniel Hamilton already has a whopping four triple doubles for the Oklahoma City Blue through the first eight games of the G League season.


The 6-7 shooting guard had 20 points, 17 assists, and 11 rebounds in a 120-115 win over the Erie Bayhawks on Nov. 24.


Hamilton has also recorded triple doubles against the Texas Legends twice (18 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists on Nov. 18; and 24 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds on Nov, 14).


He dropped his first trifecta of the season on the Windy City Bulls when he had 24 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists on Nov. 10.


Briante Weber led the G League with five triples last season, so Hamilton is on pace to destroy Weber’s 2016-17 record.


“A new player is emerging as the next success story of the G League, as Daniel Hamilton [is] turning a lot of heads by making his best impression of Russell Westbrook,” wrote Clutch Points’ Victor Galvez. “He has become the league’s triple-double machine, already recording four in their first eight games, and is looking geared to shatter the record last year by a big margin.”


A college star at UConn, Hamilton led the team in rebounds and was second in scoring as a sophomore in 2015-16, averaging 12.5 points and 8.9 rebounds while leading the Huskies to the NCAA Tournament.


The 56th overall pick in the 2016 Draft, Hamilton is signed to a two contract this season with the Thunder.


ESPN’s No. 30 ranked player in the 2014 high school class, Hamilton averaged 20.5 points. 9 rebounds, 5.2 assists as a senior at St. John Bosco HS (Bellflower, CA), leading the team to the California Division II state championship.
