Indeed historic, Donsumu now holds the record of being the first rookie to have 20 points and 10 assists and a 90% FG in a single game.
Son of Cameroonian parents, Dosunmu is on a good start to making a name for himself, similar to other Cameroonian-born NBA players such as Joel Embiid and Pascal Siakam to name a few. With 37 games under his belt, the rookie who is averaging 20.3 minutes per game has no plan of slowing down.
“I think I’ll continue getting better,” Dosunmu said.
At an age of only 22-years old, Bulls fan are in for a show as they keep their eyes on another projected prospect!
