Patrick Baldwin Jr. Signs With Warriors

The Warriors have signed first-round pick Patrick Baldwin Jr., the team announced on Twitter.

Assuming Baldwin receives 120% of the rookie scale, which is standard, his salary will be $2.2MM for his first season and $11.4MM over the four-year contract.

Baldwin was a highly touted high school player whose draft stock tumbled after a disappointing season at Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where he played for his father. An ankle injury limited him to 11 games and he averaged 12.1 points and 5.8 rebounds per night while shooting 34.4% from the field and 26.6% from three-point range.

Golden State felt Baldwin was worth the gamble with the 28th overall pick, and the Warriors can afford to give the 19-year-old forward time to develop.
