Warriors Sign Rookie To Three-Year Deal

The Golden State Warriors have signed rookie Ryan Rollins to a three-year deal, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. 

Anthony Slater of The Athletic added that the Warriors used part of their tax-payers mid-level exception to make Rollins' deal a multi-year pact. The rookie guard becomes the 13th player on Golden State's roster for the 2022-23 season.

Rollins was selected with the 44th overall pick by the Atlanta Hawks. The Warriors traded the 51st overall pick and sent over cash to acquire the rights for the 20-year-old.

Rollins was unable to compete in the Summer League as he suffered a stress fracture in his right foot. Nonetheless, with Golden State already signing him to a multi-year contract, which is fully guaranteed the first two seasons, it's clear just how much upside the defending champs see from the young guard.

Rollins averaged 18.9 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 3.6 assists in his sophomore campaign at Toledo.
