Players who didn't hear their name called at the NBA Draft have a chance to latch onto a Summer League roster. With a number of teams swiftly picking up the phone and getting commitments from undraftees, the collection is shrinking. However, Golden State will still have a chance to search for gems in the remaining patch.
An example was James Michael McAdoo who played on the Warriors' Summer League roster and earned himself a spot on the 15-man roster after training camp. Shuttling between Santa Cruz and the Bay Area, McAdoo had an opportunity to hone his skills in the D-League and gain NBA experience at the same time.
It would be expected that McAdoo and rookie Kevon Looney (if healthy) suit up for the Warriors' Summer League team. Perhaps, Santa Cruz's Aaron Craft and Elliot Williams are also among those in consideration for an invitation.
