From the look of things it seems like the Capitanes CDMX roster for the team's first season ever in the NBA G-League will have plenty of players from Puerto Rico. 

The Mexican team, which had already signed two Puerto Rico natives in Tyler Davis and Justin Reyes, have added yet another experienced player to the squad. 

That is the case for Jordan Howard, a former college basketball player for Central Arkansas who went undrafted in the 2018 NBA Draft and has had two different stints in the G-League. 

Capitanes CDMX made Howard's signing official through the team's social media accounts. 

Background

After not being selected in the draft, Howard was forced to try his luck in the Development League. The 23 year-old guard has played a total of 26 games in the G-League with two different organizations (Texas Legends and Raptors 905). 

In his 26 games with these organizations, Howard averaged 11 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.7 assists in only 20 minutes per contest.

Howard also played in the 2018 and 2019 NBA Summer Leagues for Golden State and Lakers respectively prior to having brief stints in the Korean Basketball League and in the first-tier-level professional men's basketball league in Puerto Rico.

''Welcome to your new home Jordan!'' Capitanes CDMX Head Coach Ramón Dias wrote on Twitter. 

Capitanes CDMX will kick off the 2021-22 NBA G League season soon, as they will face the Memphis Hustle on November 5 at the Landers Center.
