Warriors Re-Sign Juan Toscano-Anderson To Two-Way Deal

10:12am: Toscano-Anderson’s two-way contract is now official, the Warriors announced in a press release.

9:04am: After releasing him from their standard roster on Saturday, the Warriors will bring back wing Juan Toscano-Anderson on a two-way contract, reports Shams Charania of The Athletic (Twitter link). Toscano-Anderson cleared waivers on Monday.

A former Marquette standout, Toscano-Anderson went undrafted in 2015 and spent the first few years of his professional career playing in Mexico and Venezuela. The 27-year-old joined the Warriors’ G League affiliate in Santa Cruz for the 2019/20 season and was eventually promoted to Golden State’s NBA roster. He averaged 5.3 PPG and 4.0 RPG on .460/.348/.600 shooting in 13 games (20.9 MPG) down the stretch.

Toscano-Anderson’s contract with the Warriors included a non-guaranteed salary for 2020/21, so the team hung onto him through training camp and the preseason. Mychal Mulder beat him out for the 15th roster spot, but because Toscano-Anderson didn’t have a partial guarantee exceeding $50K, he remained eligible to sign a two-way deal with the club once he cleared waivers.

The Warriors, whose other two-way player is Nico Mannion, had been one of five teams with an empty two-way contract slot. As our tracker shows, the Pistons, Suns, Trail Blazers, and Kings still have open spots.

      especially after they probably could have grabbed better defensive guys that fit them than they did.

        As a Warriors fan, I agree with you. Count me as one of the minority that feel Myers did less than meets the eye this offseason. The Wiseman selection and the Oubre trade in the aftermath of Klay’s injury were understandable moves. But while their competitors stocked up their benches with talent, the Warriors flunked the test.

        No one should have expected more than a Top-6 slotting in the West this season after Klay went down, but I’m not sure this team as constructed even makes the postseason in the West.

        • harden (mvp),wall, and wood

          It’s pretty much impossible for them to replace Klay’s production on both ends of the court. They’re going to miss his defense a lot more though.

          • biffpocoroba

            Agreed. That’s why I was hoping Myers would have counterintuitively done more on the inside with their bench-building. It’s a given that teams will load up on Curry this year and make Wiggins and Oubre beat them, but I’m not convinced that they are skilled enough around the basket this year.

            If Wiggins and Oubre show us something on defense, then they might get in as a 6 or even a 5-seed. If not, it’s going to be a long year waiting for Klay next year.

          • They’re gonna miss his shooting a bunch too. No one else can really shoot in this roster other than steph

        • They went after Bradley he signed with the heat, they went after Gasol he signed with the lakers, they went after Baynes he signed with the raptors. Sometimes the effort is there but the cards don’t fall. Maybe if Klay didn’t get hurt a couple of those guys come to the bay. Plus they had extreme limited cap space. What can you do about that? Had to go with second tier options like Baze and Wanamaker. They’re still solid players that can mesh with this team so let’s just see

  1. Michael Chaney

    If you had said this was Shaun Livingston in the picture, I would easily have believed it

    Don’t like the Signing. Toscano is like James McAdoo from a few years ago, a jack of all trades but Master of None. He is a non-threat on Offense.

    We should have Signed a developmental 7 Footer like Justin Patton. If James Wiseman were to get Injured, the next tallest player on the team is 6-foot-9.
