Sources: Damion Lee stays on Warriors after agreeing to two-way contract

When the Warriors waived Julian Washburn earlier this month, many assumed the vacated spot was earmarked for Damion Lee, who had been a two-way player for Golden State last season and just happens to be Steph Curry's brother-in-law.

Whatever mystery remained evaporated Sunday when Lee agreed to a two-way contract to return to the Warriors, league sources confirmed to NBC Sports Bay Area's Monte Poole.

The Athletic's Shams Charania was the first to report news of the agreement.

Lee, who has played in 47 NBA games (11 starts) over the last two years, shot over 40 percent from the field between the NBA and G League last season. He provides much-needed depth at the wing position, and it would not be a surprise to see him ascend the depth chart this coming year.

In bringing Lee back, the Warriors' 2019-20 roster is now essentially finalized, with 14 NBA contracts and two two-way players.

The Warriors waived two-way forward Julian Washburn, the team announced on Wednesday afternoon.

Golden State acquired Washburn on July 7 in the trade that sent Andre Iguodala to the Memphis Grizzlies.

Washburn played in the Dubs' final two Summer League games in Las Vegas last week.

The 27-year-old appeared in 18 games with the Grizzlies last season, and averaged 11.7 points and 5.2 rebounds in 38 games with the franchise's G League affiliate.

The Warriors now have one more two-way contract available, which could go to Damion Lee.
