Five training-camp invitees — Aaron Craft, Justin Holiday, Jason Kapono, James Michael McAdoo and Mitchell Watt — are competing for the team’s final roster spot.
“I’ve had five different coaches or players tell me that this is the best group of rookies they’ve ever seen: the maturity, what they bring to practice every day, and they’re all good players, too,” head coach Steve Kerr said.
The Warriors usually like the flexibility of entering the season with a 14-man roster. But they’re leaning toward keeping 15 — at least until contracts become fully guaranteed Jan.10 — because their training-camp invitees have been so solid.
