Per NBA rules, teams are permitted to sign two players to Two-Way contracts in addition to the 15-man regular-season roster. Players signed to a Two-Way contract may accrue no more than 45 days of service with their respective NBA club during the regular season, spending the remainder of the season with the team’s G League affiliate. The Warriors’ Two-Way players will have the ability to spend time with both Golden State and the team’s G League affiliate in Santa Cruz.
