SEPTEMBER 15: Nearly a month after agreeing to sign Pressey, the Warriors made it official this week, according to RealGM’s transactions log. It appears to be a one-year, non-guaranteed summer contract.
AUGUST 16: The Warriors intend to sign unrestricted free agent Phil Pressey, international journalist David Pick reports (on Twitter). The scribe refers to it as a training camp invite, which likely means it’s a make-good deal for the league minimum that includes little or no guaranteed money.
The 25-year-old point guard will have his work cut out for him to make the regular season roster in Golden State, with the team already having 16 players under contract, as Roster Resource shows. Of the 16 players already on the roster, 14 possess fully guaranteed pacts, which leaves one spot up for grabs.
Pressey most recently suited up for the Pistons’ summer league squad in Orlando, appearing in five contests and averaging 2.2 points and 3.0 rebounds in 13.5 minutes per outing. He appeared in a combined 23 games last season for the Sixers and Suns, averaging 3.4 points, 1.4 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 12.3 minutes. His shooting line for 2015/16 was .385/.222/.520.
