Warriors bring back Toscano-Anderson on two-way deal


The Warriors made an expected move ahead of their season opener against the Brooklyn Nets by signing Juan Toscano-Anderson to a two-way contract, the team announced Tuesday.

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

The Warriors waived Toscano-Anderson on Saturday as their final roster cutdown move, giving the 15th spot to Mychal Mulder. After waiving Toscano-Anderson, coach Steve Kerr noted it was a hard decision because he likes how the guard plays the game and hoped the Warriors could bring back the Oakland native on a two-way contract.

"Very, very difficult decision for us," Kerr said. "Juan is a favorite of mine because he knows how to play basketball and he's a winner. He just makes plays and competes."

Toscano-Anderson appeared in 13 games for the Warriors last season, averaging 5.3 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 20.9 minutes.

Toscano-Anderson will be the Warriors' second player on a two-way contract, with rookie guard Nico Mannion being the other.

The Warriors will open their season Tuesday night against Kevin Durant and the Nets.

Draymond Green (foot) will not play in the season opener, but rookie center James Wiseman has been cleared to make his NBA debut after missing the first week of training camp.
