Ahead of training camp which begins in September, the Warriors have continued to sign players for a few days. They have managed to improve their bench, while the front office wants to give young players a chance for the future. Mac McClung is concerned, but he will have competition. We take stock.
Defending champions, the Warriors will logically have some pressure next year, to try to defend their property. Steve Kerr’s men have certainly lost some elements, but they managed to save money, which must please owner Joe Lacob. The franchise hit hard with the signing of a prized veteran in JaMychal Green recently, but the moves are far from over for Golden State this summer.
The Warriors chain the signatures
We know that Mac McClung got a chance for training camp, since he got a one-year contract with the Dubs, not guaranteed. This means that he will have to prove himself in September, and that he will be retained if his prowess is satisfactory. Problem ? There will likely only be one spot up for grabs, and the Warriors have already signed a contender in the market.
Undrafted Purdue center Trevion Williams has agreed to a deal with the Golden State Warriors, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium. Exhibit 10 contract to compete for a roster spot for Williams, who averaged 7.4 points, 6.6 rebounds and 14.2 minutes for Boston in summer league.

Undrafted center Trevion Williams has agreed to a contract with the Golden State Warriors. It’s an Exhibit 10 contract that will be used to fight for a place in the roster. Williams had 7.4 points and 6.6 rebounds in 14.2 minutes with Boston in the Summer League.
An interesting recruit, since it allows us to see that the Warriors would not necessarily be against the arrival of another pivot. Kevon Looney may have been back for a few seasons, but another reinforcement could be interesting in San Francisco.
Finally, another notable move: the Dubs have already distributed a two-way contract, for Quinndary Weatherspoon, which made a good impression. We are talking here about a good defender, who averaged 25 points in the G-League last season. If the performances are there, he can find a place in the rotation:
Warriors have signed Quinndary Weatherspoon to a two-way contract. They’ve had the two-way qualifying offer out to him since the beginning of free agency. There’s belief he can help them in rotation minutes next season.

The Warriors signed Quinndary Weatherspoon to a two-way contract. They think he can help them in the rotation for the next season.
It’s still moving for the Warriors, and it may not be over for the front office, still looking for a few good surprises in the market. The summer is still very long for the franchise, which could also be agitated in the trade market.
