Warriors Open Up Both Two-Way Roster Spots Ahead of Title Defense

The Golden State Warriors have reportedly waived two-way guards Quinndary Weatherspoon and Lester Quinones with less than a week before the start of their title defense, the team announced on Thursday.

This move opens up both of Golden State's two-way roster spots, which guys such as Ty Jerome, Anthony Lamb, and Pat Spencer can compete for.

Golden State previously signed Weatherspoon to a two-way deal earlier in the summer. He spent the 2021-22 season with the Warriors, though most of it with Golden State's G-League affiliate in Santa Cruz.

The 26-year-old had a standout campaign with the Sea Dubs, averaging 25.3 points, 6.7 rebounds, 3.1 assists, and 2.1 steals in 20 G-League games. 

Weatherspoon appeared in just 11 games with the big squad. He tallied his career-high in points and minutes in an early March game versus the Denver Nuggets, where he scored 11 points in 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, the Warriors also inked Quinones to a two-way deal after he went undrafted in 2022 NBA Draft. 

Quinones spent three seasons with the Memphis Tigers. He averaged 10.1 points and 4.3 rebounds, and 1.8 assists in 87 games with the program.
