Warriors To Sign Nico Mannion To Two-Way Deal

Second-round pick Nico Mannion will be signing a two-way contract with the Warriors, sources tell Shams Charania of The Athletic (Twitter link).

Mannion, who started 32 games for Arizona as a freshman last season, averaged 14.0 PPG, 5.3 APG, and 1.2 SPG with a .392/.327/.797 shooting line before declaring for the 2020 draft.

He was widely viewed as a potential first-round pick, but slipped down to No. 48, where the Warriors nabbed him. Executives around the NBA were surprised to see Mannion fall so far, according to a report last week.

Undrafted wing Dwayne Sutton is said to be the favorite to earn Golden State’s other two-way contract. The Warriors’ other second-round selection, No. 51 pick Justinian Jessup, is expected to spend season in Australia, where he’s already a member of the Illawara Hawks.

  1. Smart move gives him time to learn and play in the NBA. It will be a fun year since most NBA fans have written off the GSW. Especially laker fans who feel GSW can’t win without KD. The west will be very competitive this year.

    This is the only chance Warriors can defeat Lakers
    Davis injures in playoffs to offset Klay

    • More than anything is GSW needs to stay injury free. the long lay off helped the Lakers last year and re-energized LeBron. He will not have the same benefit this year.

        The short offseason will hurt the Lakers and Suns as much as anyone, especially LA since they were in the Finals. Who knows how much LeBron and Chris Paul will be able to play early in the season.

      • The Human Rain Delay

        Sillivan is correct- The only chance GSW has against LAL is an inj to Davis

        LBJ will be managed greatly this season and the mins will probably be a career low

    Hopefully he is better than he was in college. Most mediocre five star recruit ever.
