We’ve known for a while that the Golden State Warriors would be inviting Juan Toscano-Anderson to training camp to help fill out the preseason roster.
But now we know a few more specifics. Toscano-Anderson will be signed to an Exhibit 10 contract. The news comes from Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports.
Per league sources, the Golden State Warriors have signed Juan Toscano-Anderson to an Exhibit 10 contract. Toscano-Anderson played for the Santa Cruz Warriors in the NBAGL last season.— Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) September 10, 2019
An Exhibit 10 contract is pretty simple, and is just a player-friendly camp contract. It’s a standard training camp contract, but the player receives fiscal incentive to play for the team’s G League affiliate.
In other words, if and when Toscano-Anderson is waived before the season starts, he’ll make more money by playing the year for the Santa Cruz Warriors than he would if he were to sign with a different G League team.
The Warriors certainly seem to like having Toscano-Anderson in the system. He played for Santa Cruz last year, averaging 7.0 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 2.1 assists per game in 44 contests. The six-foot-six guard, who is 26 years old, also played for the Warriors in Summer League, where he averaged 6.8 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 1.8 assists per game in Las Vegas, and 5.0 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 1.0 assists per game in the California Classic.
Golden State does not have room to sign Toscano-Anderson to a roster spot, as they are hard-capped. They also have both of their two-way contracts filled.
Barring Toscano-Anderson getting an NBA contract elsewhere, or a nice contract overseas, it looks like he’ll be spending the 2019-20 season in Santa Cruz.
