1:22pm: The signing is official, the team announced via press release.
11:27am: Agent Jim Tanner confirms the deal to Diamond Leung of the Bay Area News Group.
11:13am: The Warriors and James McAdoo have agreed upon a second 10-day deal, a league source tells Shams Charania of RealGM. The rookie power forward had gone back to Golden State’s D-League team after the expiration of his first 10-day contract last week, but Warriors coach Steve Kerr spoke at that time of McAdoo as someone he hoped would be a part of the club’s future. The Warriors have an open roster spot, so there won’t be a need for a corresponding move.
The 22-year-old was the sixth-ranked player in the Recruiting Services Consensus Index coming out of high school in 2011, but his stock gradually slipped during his three years at North Carolina, and he went undrafted this past summer. The Warriors had him on their summer league team and gave him a $35K partial guarantee on his contract for camp. McAdoo failed to make the opening-night roster, but the Warriors retained his D-League rights, and he’s averaged 19.3 points and 9.6 rebounds in 32.9 minutes per game over 24 appearances for Golden State’s D-League affiliate.
This second arrangement will be the final 10-day contract the Warriors are allowed to give McAdoo this year, so at the end of it, Golden State will either have to sign him for the season or let him sit in NBA free agency and risk another team snapping him up. McAdoo spoke with Zach Links of Hoops Rumors shortly before the draft.
