With the first game approaching in less than a day, the Golden State Warriors are making some minor tweaks to their roster. The team announced that they have claimed Jeff Dowtin after he was waived by the Orlando Magic and will be converting his contract to a two-way deal according to a tweet from the team.

Dowtin most recently spent time with the Orlando Magic where he played in three preseason games. In those games, he averaged 4.7 points and 1.3 assists in 8.7 minutes per game. Prior to that, Dowtin was a member of the Warriors’ 2021 California Classic Summer League team in Sacramento. In his 2 games with the team, the 6’-3” guard out of Rhode Island averaged 17 points and 4 assists in 28 minutes per game. His time with the Warriors was highlighted by a 21 point performance against the Sacramento Kings where he showcased his ability to score tough baskets.

As far as what it means for the Warriors roster, Dowtin will be taking the team’s final two-way contract spot alongside guard Chris Chiozza. If the Warriors want to add another player to the team, they will most likely be using their final spot on the main roster to do it.
