The Santa Cruz Warriors released their 2017-18 NBA G League training camp roster on Sunday.

The Santa Cruz Warriors, NBA G League affiliate of the reigning NBA champion Golden State Warriors, officially announced their 2017-18 training camp roster on Sunday.

The roster includes a total of 15 names consisting of four retuning players, two two-way contract players, two newly drafted players, four players who recently spent the preseason with Golden State, and three local tryouts.

The Sea Dubs officially begin training camp on Tuesday, Oct. 24 at Kaiser Permanente Arena. They are scheduled to open the season on Friday, Nov. 3 in Ontario, CA against the Agua Caliente Clippers, after which they will play their season home opener at KP Arena against the South Bay Lakers on Saturday, Nov. 4.

Per Santa Cruz Warriors PR:

"“The Santa Cruz Warriors training camp roster was assembled with the hard work and diligence of our coaching and front office staff, led by Assistant General Manager Ryan Atkinson, along with support from the Golden State Warriors organization,” said Santa Cruz Warriors General Manager Kent Lacob.“I’m excited to open training camp on Tuesday morning with this talented roster, and look forward to seeing how Coach Aaron Miles will shape this roster into a team.”"

Golden State Warriors fans will for sure recognize the names of Antonius Cleveland, Michael Gbinije, Georges Niang and Trevor Thompson, who each spent varying amounts of time in training camp with Golden State.

Golden State fans will also recognize the names of Chris Boucher and Quinn Cook, who have two-way contracts with the Warriors organization.

Santa Cruz Warriors fans already know Cleanthony Early, Alex Hamilton and James Southerland, who will be returning to Surf City as returning players. Damion Lee, whose returning player rights  were acquired in a 3-team trade involving LaDontae Henton, is also listed as a returning player on the training camp roster.

New names Avry Holmes and Najeal Young were acquired in the 2017 NBA G League Draft, which took place last Saturday. Malik Story, who was selected by the Sea Dubs with the last pick in the draft, is notably not listed on the roster.
