The Golden State Warriors signed Juan Toscano-Anderson to a two-way contract on Tuesday after recently waiving him, according to the team. Toscano-Anderson was initially waived in order for Mychal Mulder to get the final 15-man roster spot.
Toscano-Anderson joins 2020 second-round pick Nico Mannion as the pair of two-way players on the Warriors, so the roster is now set ahead of their regular-season opener against the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night.
What does this all mean for Jeremy Lin?
It’s not totally clear. The Warriors were hoping to bring in Lin on an Exhibit 10 deal, but things fell apart due to a procedural issue. While there’s reportedly still interest in signing him and having him play in the G League, Lin might have moved on to other options at this point.
Lin hasn’t played in the NBA since he saw spot minutes on the 2018-19 NBA champion Toronto Raptors. He spent last season playing in China, but the 32-year-old is hoping to make a return to the NBA at some point. His NBA career actually started with the Warriors back in 2010.
As for Toscano-Anderson, he has come a long way to reach where he is currently at this stage of his career. After going undrafted in the 2015 NBA Draft, he took his talents overseas and played in a handful of leagues until 2018.
The Oakland native then joined the Santa Cruz Warriors in training camp prior to the 2018-2019 season and stayed on the G League affiliate squad until the 2019-2020 season.
Toscano-Anderson managed to appear in 13 games for Dub Nation and averaged 5.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 2.0 assists last season. Hopefully, Warriors fans will get to see more of Juan Toscano-Anderson as he looks forward to making the most out of the opportunities.
