Report: Warriors signing Bay Area product Juan Toscano–Anderson to NBA contract

After a bevy of moves before the 2020 NBA trade deadline, the Golden State Warriors roster is left thin. The Warriors flurry of moves sent out six players, with all six being steady contributors throughout the season.

Willie Cauley-Stein’s move to Dallas started Golden State’s active week, with trades of Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson III following. The Warriors capped off their trade deadline with a blockbuster deal sending D’Angelo Russell, Jacob Evans III and Omari Spellman to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Warriors ended the trade deadline sending out six different players with most of the return being draft compensation. Andrew Wiggins was the only player to come back in a deal for Golden State, leaving the Warriors’ front office with some work to do to fill out the rotation.

Starting the Warriors roster replenishment, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reported Juan Toscano-Anderson would be signed to one of the Golden State’s open roster spots.

Toscano-Anderson played with the Warriors G League affiliate in Santa Cruz this season, averaging 12.5 points, 9.1 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.4 steals in 29 minutes per game.

Before playing in the G League, Toscano-Anderson went undrafted after playing four years at Marquette. The swingman went on to play professionally in Mexico.

Toscano-Anderson, born in Oakland, played high school basketball at Castro Valley for the Trojans.

The Bay Area product will have the remainder of the season with Golden State to show he belongs in the NBA for the long-haul.
