Warriors Waive Julian Washburn

After being acquired in a trade earlier this month, two-way player Julian Washburn has now been waived by the Warriors. Golden State confirmed the move today in a press release.

Washburn, 27, played for the Grizzlies on a two-way contract last season, appearing in limited minutes over the course of 18 games for the club after signing in January. The 6’8″ forward appeared in a total of 38 G League contests for the Austin Spurs and Memphis Hustle, recording 11.7 PPG and 5.3 RPG with a shooting line of .477/.406/.743.

Washburn’s two-way deal featured a second year, but the Grizzlies agreed to sign John Konchar to fill their second two-way slot alongside Yuta Watanabe.

Rather than simply waiving Washburn, Memphis had him the outgoing piece in the trade that sent Andre Iguodala, a first-round pick, and cash to the Grizzlies. While the Warriors briefly held onto Washburn, it seems the team would rather fill that two-way slot with another player.
