OAKLAND – Guard Justin Holiday has claimed the 15th and final Warriors roster spot after the rest of the training camp invitees were waived Friday.
Holiday, a 25-year-old University of Washington product, last played in the NBA two seasons ago with Philadelphia, appearing in nine games.
After playing in Hungary last season, he was a standout on the Warriors’ NBA Summer League team in Las Vegas. In the preseason, he averaged 5.8 points, making 7 of 19 3-point attempts.
“I want to thank Coach (Steve) Kerr and the Warriors organization for giving me this opportunity,” Holiday tweeted. “I am excited to be playing for the best fans In the NBA and with one of the best teams. This will be a fun year. Most importantly I want to thank God, couldn’t have done it without him.”
The Warriors will look to send Aaron Craft, Sean Kilpatrick, James Michael McAdoo and Mitchell Watt – if they clear waivers — to their NBA Development League affiliate in Santa Cruz.
Veteran guard Jason Kapono has said he would return to his Danville home if he did not make the team.
