After finishing the 2017-18 NBA season with the Atalanta Hawks, former Cardinal Damion Lee has inked a new deal with Golden State Warriors.
Chris Haynes of ESPN was the first to report that Lee has signed a two-way contract with the two-time defending NBA champs.
Two-way contracts are still a relatively new thing in the NBA. Last year the league created two extra roster spots for each NBA teams. These positions require players to rotate between the G League and the team they’ve signed with. NBA players on two-way contracts can earn up to $204,000 instead of the $35,000 G League salary.
Lee signed two ten-day contracts with the Atlanta Hawks this past season and turned that into a deal for the remainder of the season.
The former Cardinal played in 15 games, averaging 10.7 points and 4.7 rebounds in roughly 27 minutes per contest.
Lee has a connection with the Warriors. He’s engaged to Sydel Curry, the younger sister of two-time MVP Steph Curry.<
