Warriors announce training camp signees, still no Patrick McCaw

The Golden State Warriors, who begin training camp on Tuesday, have officially announced the signings of Marcus Derrickson and Alfonzo McKinnie, along with free agents guards Danuel House Jr. and Kendrick Nunn.

Golden State, which will practice four days in a row before their first preseason game at Oracle Arena on Saturday, Sept. 29, are still waiting on shooting guard Patrick McCaw, who has yet to sign a $1.64 million qualifying offer.

McCaw was productive off the bench for the Warriors as a rookie, shooting 33.3 percent from three and 43.3 percent from the floor, averaging 4.0 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 2016, but didn’t win a rotation spot out of training camp last season, with the additions of Nick Young and Omri Casspi. He then missed more than four weeks with a wrist injury, and nearly two months after a spinal injury suffered when Vince Carter undercut him on a layup attempt in Sacramento.

The Warriors are, at least at this point, moving forward without him. They don’t have a choice. Derrickson, like McCaw last year, was intriguing in the summer league. The 6-foot-7, 249-pound forward shot 49.1 percent from the field, 40.9 percent from three (9-for-22), led the team in rebounding with 24 overall, scored a team-high 70 points and added two blocks and six steals.

An early draft entry out of Georgetown, Derrickson went undrafted. The 22-year old, averaged 15.9 points, 8.1 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 32.0 minutes in 29 games (all starts) during his junior season at with the Hoyas. He was named to the All-Big East Second Team and ranked second in Big East Conference in three-point field goal percentage (29-of-58, 3FG .500).

Texas A&M product House Jr., 25, played in 23 games (three starts) with the Phoenix Suns last season, averaging 6.6 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.1 assists in 17.5 minutes per game after signing a two-way deal on December 8.

With G League affiliate Northern Arizona, House Jr. averaged 18.2 points, 5.1 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.10 steals in 32.9 minutes per game. He began the G League season with Rio Grande Valley appearing in 15 games and averaging 17.5 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.00 steals in 31.3 minutes per game.

McKinnie, 26, appeared in 14 games off the bench for the Toronto Raptors during the 2017-18 season, and averaged 1.5 points in 3.8 minutes per game.

The 6-foot-8, 215-pound forward out of Wisconsin-Green Bay started all 35 games he appeared in with Toronto’s G League affiliate, Raptors 905, averaging 14.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists in 29.9 minutes per game. After going undrafted in 2015, he appeared in 50 games (34 starts) with the G League’s Windy City Bulls, averaging 14.9 points and 9.2 rebounds in 30.5 minutes per game.

Nunn, a 23-year old Oakland University (Mich.) product, went undrafted in the 2018 Draft. He appeared in 30 games (26 starts) as a senior, averaging 25.9 points (second in the NCAA), 4.7 rebounds, a career-high 3.8 assists and 1.50 steals in 37.9 minutes per game.

Nunn earned the Horizon League Player of the Year and was a 2017-18 Lou Henson All-American, leading the NCAA in three-pointers made per game last season (4.47 3FGM), also an Oakland University school record. He began his collegiate career at Illinois where he spent three seasons, appearing in 96 games and averaging 10.6 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.05 steals in 27.7 minutes per game.

The Warriors will open the preseason against the Timberwolves, before heading to Seattle to play the Sacramento Kings on Oct. 5.
