Ty Jerome May Join Warriors On Training Camp Contract

The Warriors are talking with Ty Jerome about a training camp deal once he clears waivers on Monday, tweets Anthony Slater of The Athletic. Jerome would be given a chance to compete for a roster spot, sources tell Slater and Shams Charania.

Golden State has 14 players with guaranteed contracts after the return of Andre Iguodala and is expected to keep its 15th slot open due to luxury tax concerns. Jerome’s best bet appears to be a two-way contract, and those are currently held by Lester Quinones and Quinndary Weatherspoon.

Jerome, a 25-year-old shooting guard, was shipped Friday from the Thunder to the Rockets in an eight-player trade. He was waived on Saturday, according to Jonathan Feigen of The Houston Chronicle (Twitter link).

Jerome was selected by the Sixers with the 24th pick in the 2019 draft, but was traded twice before making his NBA debut. He spent one season with the Suns before being sent to the Thunder as part of the Chris Paul deal in 2020. He was a rotation player in Oklahoma City the past two seasons, averaging 8.6 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 81 combined games.

The Warriors currently have a full 20-man roster, so someone would have to be waived to make room for Jerome.
