The Golden State Warriors are three players heavier since Friday, August 5th.

The teams PR Twitter account issued a press release stating that Mac McClung, Pat Spencer and Trevion Williams had all signed deals with the dubs and are now official members of the organization, after each player had previously agreed to deals to join the team. The specific contract details were not announced.

McClung is the headliner of the group after winning the 2021 G League Rookie of the Year (ROY) award for averaging 21.7 points, 7.6 assists, 6.6 rebounds and 1.4 steals in 36 minutes of game time in 27 Games won as a member of the South Bay Lakers and Windy City Bulls. The 23-year-old guard appeared in one NBA game each for the Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls last season and averaged four points and 1.5 rebounds per contest, according to Basketball Reference.

In the NBA’s 2022 Las Vegas Summer League, McClung played his ball with the Warriors roster, dropping 13.4 points, 4.8 assists and 3.6 rebounds in five games. He also showed some flair on the fast break that could prove compatible with the likes of Steph Curry in the Warriors backcourt should McClung fight his way to a role on the team.

In addition to McClung, the Dubs have signed another undrafted free agent in Williams, most recently with the Purdue Boilermakers. Williams was named to the third-team All Big 10 list last year and won the conference’s Sixth Man of the Year award before playing his summer league ball for the Boston Celtics.

“Undrafted Purdue center Trevion Williams has agreed to a deal with the Golden State Warriors, sources say @TheAthletic @Stadium.” Shams Charania by The Athletic tweeted on July 22. “Introduce 10 contracts to compete for a roster spot for Williams, who averaged 7.4 points, 6.6 rebounds and 14.2 minutes for Boston in the summer league.”

Should he ever secure a spot on the 12-man roster, Williams would be there to bolster the Golden State’s front line, which now includes Draymond Green, Kevon Looney, James Wiseman and JaMychal Green.

Finally, the Warriors added a former lacrosse star to an Exhibit 10 deal in the form of Spencer.

Spencer, 26, also a 2020 undrafted free agent from Northwestern, is a former college lacrosse player who was involved in the sport while attending Loyola University Maryland. He was named the top collegiate lacrosse player in the United States in 2019 and was the first pick in the Premier Lacrosse League’s inaugural draft that same year.

Spencer played basketball at Northwestern as a graduate assistant in 2020 and was a member of the Capital City Go-Go in the NBA G League in 2021, averaging 7.5 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 14.5 minutes per night in 15 games .
