Warriors Cut Yuri Collins

The Warriors have placed guard Yuri Collins on waivers two days after signing him, the team announced today (via Twitter).

A 6’0″ point guard who went undrafted in June out of Saint Louis, Collins averaged 11.2 points, 10.1 assists, 3.3 rebounds, and 1.3 steals with a .442/.319/.735 shooting line in 32 games (35.1 MPG) as a senior in 2022/23. An All-Atlantic 10 First Team member each of the past two seasons, he also suited up for the Warriors in Summer League action.

Collins signed an Exhibit 10 contract with Golden State for G League purposes — his deal didn’t even include Exhibit 9 language protecting the Warriors in the event of an injury, an indication that the team never planned to have him suit up for a game.

The plan will be for Collins to report to the Santa Cruz Warriors, Golden State’s G League affiliate, when training camps begin later this month. Assuming he spends at least 60 days with Santa Cruz, he’ll receive a $25K bonus on top of his NBAGL salary.
