Damion Lee will return to play with the Golden State Warriors next season on a two-way contract, per The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
Lee, a 26-year-old guard out of Louisville, signed with the Warriors last July on a two-way deal. He played 32 games in the regular season with Golden State last season, averaging 11.7 minutes a game. Lee shot 44.1% on the field on four field goal attempts a game, averaging 4.9 points per game.
As the Warriors bring back Lee, they have filled their final two-way contract spot. The Warriors signed undrafted rookie Ky Bowman to a two-way deal last Tuesday. Each NBA team is allowed to have two players on two-way deals.
Since Lee was on a two-way deal last season, he couldn’t spend more than 45 days with Golden State. He played for the Warriors’ G League affiliate, the Santa Cruz Warriors, where he averaged 20.3 points per game on 47.3% shooting from the field. Lee also shot 39.8% from the three-point line and averaged 6.0 rebounds a game.
