Training camp is about to start for the Golden State Warriors - it’s just a few days away. And with it on the immediate horizon, the team has announced their official training camp roster.

The roster features 18 players: 13 guaranteed roster spots, four non-guaranteed contracts, and one two-way contract.
Notably absent is third-year wing Patrick McCaw, who remains unsigned. Golden State has extended the qualifying offer to McCaw, making him a restricted free agent. McCaw has been holding out, presumably to see if another team will give him an offer sheet that exceeds the qualifying offer.
With the Warriors using just 13 of their 15 available roster spots, they’re clearly holding a spot open for McCaw. It seems as though both sides are expecting a resolution, but with every passing day, a few more question marks arise.
Golden State is openly only planning on using 14 of their roster spots, so McCaw would, presumably, by the final guaranteed contract signed. But in training camp, one of their four non-guaranteed contracts may earn a two-way contract, as the team has one of those left to offer.
It’s also worth noting that Will Cherry, who was reportedly going to sign a non-guaranteed Exhibit 10 contract with the team, is not listed.
Here’s a breakdown of the training camp roster:
