Warriors Sign Damion Lee To Two-Way Contract

JULY 30: The Warriors have officially signed Lee to a new two-way contract, per RealGM’s NBA transactions log.

JULY 28: Per a report from Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium, the Warriors and swingman Damion Lee have reached terms on a two-way contract that will see Lee, the brother-in-law of Stephen Curry, return to the Bay Area for the 2019/20 season.

Lee, who played under a two-way contract with Golden State last season also, appeared in 39 games for the Warriors in 2018/19, averaging 4.9 PPG in 11.7 MPG. Anthony Slater of The Athletic first reported that Lee was again a candidate for one of the team’s two-way slots approximately two weeks ago.

The 26-year-old Drexel and Louisville product also played in 15 games (11 starts) for the Hawks during his rookie season in 2017/18, where he averaged an impressive 10.7 PPG in 26.9 minutes per contest, albeit in relatively meaningless action toward the end of the regular season.

The Warriors other two-way slot is occupied by rookie guard Ky Bowman. Forward Julian Washburn held the other spot for awhile, but he was waived after being acquired from the Grizzlies in the trade that sent Andre Igoudala to Memphis to clear cap space.

  1. I wonder why he didn’t wait, since his QO (a two-way contract) didn’t expire until Oct 1. Another team might have offered him a regular NBA vet min contract.

        • The Warriors might give someone else their two-way contract if he is hesitant. Never look a gift horse in the mouth.

          • You don’t understand. He had a Qualifying Offer, a two-way contract with a 50k guarantee. The Warriors couldn’t withdraw it.

            • Okay thanks. I didn’t understand they couldn’t get out of it especially at a measly 50 Grand. Thank you for clarifying. I didn’t realize they were locked into Damion Lee.

    Speaking off GSW, I dont think you guys have mentioned that Andrew Bogut has agreed to return to Australia next season and play for the Sydney Kings with whom he suited up for last season before joining the Warriors for the stretch run of the regular season and playoffs.

    • That Arrangement was always in place.

      Bogut plays the regular season in Australia and when that is over he’ll be free to join the Warriors or another team if he so chooses. Nothing new there.
