Warriors Sign Trayce Jackson-Davis To Four-Year Deal

JULY 6: The Warriors have officially signed Jackson-Davis, the team announced today (via Twitter).

JULY 5: The Warriors are signing second-round pick Trayce Jackson-Davis to a four-year contract, agents James Dunleavy and Max Lipsett tell Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN (Twitter link). The first two years will be guaranteed, according to Wojnarowski.

The 57th overall pick in last month’s draft, Jackson-Davis is coming off an impressive four-year college career at Indiana. As a senior in 2022/23, the 6’9″ forward averaged a double-double (20.9 PPG, 10.8 RPG) with 4.0 APG and 2.9 BPG in 32 contests (34.5 MPG).

Jackson-Davis was a consensus first team All-American and an All-Big Ten player in 2023, earning the Karl Malone award as college basketball’s top power forward.

Golden State acquired Jackson-Davis’ draft rights from the Wizards in exchange for cash considerations.

The Warriors have no cap room and no mid-level exception available this offseason, so they would’ve been limited to offering Jackson-Davis a two-year, minimum-salary contract if not for the NBA’s new second-round pick exception, which allows them to go up to four years. The final year of the deal will be a team option.
