Warriors sign former first-round pick to two-way deal

The Warriors revealed in a press release on Friday (Twitter link) that they had signed free-agent guard Jerome Robinson to a two-way deal. The 21-man roster for Golden State is officially complete.

Robinson, the 13th overall selection in the 2018 NBA Draft, played in 113 games for the Clippers and Wizards during the regular season, averaging 14.2 minutes per night with 4.5 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 1.2 assists.

Since the 2020–21 NBA season, when he made 17 appearances with Washington, he has not participated in an NBA game.

Robinson has played for Golden State's G League club, the Santa Cruz Warriors, for the past two seasons. He played in 38 games (29.4 MPG) with Santa Cruz in 2022–2023 and averaged 14.6 PPG, 4.6 APG, and 4.1 RPG with a.455/.353/.909 shooting line.

Robinson's contract with Golden State was first made public more than two months ago, in July. It was anticipated at the time that he would sign a contract to attend a training camp. 

Rather, he will join Lester Quinones and Usman Garuba in occupying the team's third two-way spot, completing the 21-man preseason roster. But according to Anthony Slater of The Athletic, Robinson could have to fight to hold onto that position throughout training camp (via Twitter).

It would be easy for Golden State to make a preseason adjustment because two-way contracts only offer a limited guarantee, and players on Exhibit 10 contracts may be changed to two-way contracts before to the regular season.
