Charles Jenkins is in his second NBA season with the Golden State Warriors after a standout college career at Hofstra where he became the school’s all-time leading scorer.
Mark Jackson spoke glowingly about the progress Jenkins has made under his tutelage.
“He’s been ready since Day 1,” said Jackson. “We drafted him and he is a legitimate pro in every way, works his tail off. He’s always ready whenever I call upon him, the first in the gym, the last to leave, a sparkplug.”
Jenkins averaged 17.5 minutes per game as a rookie, but is playing just 4.5 minutes per game during the first part of 12-13, backing up Stephen Curry and Jarrett Jack.
RealGM caught up with Jenkins for a video interview to discuss his homecoming to the Brooklyn area, his development with the Warriors, and what the future holds in his contract year.
