Sources: Warriors signing Santos to 3-year deal

The Golden State Warriors are signing Brazilian forward Gui Santos to their 14th roster spot on a three-year deal, sources told ESPN on Monday.

Santos was the 55th overall pick in the 2022 draft and has been playing for the Santa Cruz Warriors in the G league for the last year.

In his one season in Santa Cruz, Santos averaged 12.7 points on 50% shooting from the field and 33.3% from 3 to go along with 6 rebounds and 4 assists in 26 minutes per game.

During his time with the Warriors’ summer league team in July, Santos said he was emphasizing his footwork, strength and timing.

The 6-foot-7 forward gives Golden State more front court depth, but doesn’t add much size to an already small team.
