Santa Cruz Warriors Announce Training Camp Roster
The Santa Cruz Warriors, the NBA D-League affiliate of the Golden State Warriors, announced the team’s training camp roster today. Returning players Moe Baker, Taylor Griffin, Cameron Jones and Daniel Nwaelele highlight the 14-man squad that will begin training camp on Thursday.
Joe Alexander, Seth Curry and Dewayne Dedmon are on the roster via the “affiliate rule,” which states that up to three players who were released from Golden State Warriors training camp can be allocated directly to the franchise’s D-League team.
John Allen, William Buford and Paul Crosby were acquired through trades. Kiwi Gardner, Orion Outerbridge and Earl Pettis were selected by the Santa Cruz Warriors in the 2013 NBA D-League Draft. Kevin Kotzur was invited to training camp directly from the Oakland open tryout. Gardner also participated in open tryouts.
“We’ve assembled a team I’m proud of, and we are more than ready to begin training camp tomorrow ahead of Opening Night on November 22,” said Santa Cruz Warriors Head Coach Casey Hill. “My coaching staff and I are excited about what lies ahead for this team.”
The complete training camp roster is provided below. For more information, please contact Matt de Nesnera, public and community relations manager, at (831) 713-4396 or (703) 554-5499.
