DECEMBER 23: The signing is official, according to a team press release.
DECEMBER 22: The Warriors are calling up shooting guard Quinndary Weatherspoon from their G League affiliate, per Shams Charania of The Athletic, who reports (via Twitter) that the two sides have agreed to a 10-day deal. Golden State will complete the signing using a hardship exception.
The Warriors haven’t been hit too hard yet by COVID-19 this month, but do have two players in the protocols for the time being — Jordan Poole entered the protocols last Friday and Andrew Wiggins joined him on Sunday. This will be the club’s first hardship signing of the season.
The 49th overall pick in the 2019 draft, Weatherspoon spent his first two professional seasons with San Antonio, logging limited minutes in a total of 31 games. This season, he has been a regular contributor for the Santa Cruz Warriors in the G League, averaging 16.1 PPG, 4.3 RPG, and 3.7 APG on .442/.281/.905 shooting through nine games (27.4 MPG).
Golden State’s team salary is far above the luxury tax line, but Weatherspoon’s 10-day deal won’t count for cap or tax purposes. He’ll earn $95,930 across 10 days.
