Leaving the Georgetown Hoyas a season early is initially paying off for Marcus Derrickson.
Less than a month before what would have been his senior season at Georgetown, the 6-7 forward has signed a two-way contract with the Golden State Warriors.
Derrickson nabbed the second two-way position on the Warriors after an outstanding Summer League translated to a solid preseason.
Fitting right into the Warriors deep-ball oriented scheme, Derrickson was 6-16 from three point range during the five-game preseason. He's a versatile stretch-four that continues to develop and improve on his outside game.
By signing a two-way contract, the former All-Big East Second teamer will have a chance to get called up to the two-time defending NBA champions at any point this season for up to 45 days. The remaining time will be with the Warriors' G-league affiliate the Santa Cruz Warriors.
This arrangement will earn Derrickson a contract of $75,000 and a prorated amount for however much time he is practicing/ playing with Golden State.
If he is called up to the NBA for more than the allotted 45 days, then the Warriors are obligated to give him a minimum rookie contract.
Derrickson continues to prove himself as the list of aspiring players dwindles. As each contract begins to near its end, the Warriors time after time offer another opportunity.
