The Warriors have filled out their roster for training camp by signing free agent guard Alex Hamilton to a contract, the team announced today in a press release. The move increases Golden State’s roster count to 20 players.
Hamilton, who turns 24 next month, played his college ball at Louisiana Tech, averaging 19.9 PPG and 6.2 APG in his senior year in 2015/16. Although his performance earned him Conference USA Player of the Year honors, Hamilton went undrafted last year.
After a short stint with a Polish team, Hamilton was selected in the G League draft and spent the 2016/17 season with the Santa Cruz Warriors, Golden State’s affiliate. He averaged 11.4 PPG and 4.5 APG in his first year at Santa Cruz, and is a good bet to head back to the G League following the preseason this year.
Although the Warriors have 20 players under contract, only one of the club’s two-way contract spots has been filled, so Hamilton may be a candidate for the other slot.
