A number of all-time players have suited up for the Golden State Warriors over the years. This current core has had the benefit of an extremely long run together, winning four titles and making it to the NBA Finals six times. Stephen Curry will likely pass Nate Thurmond for first in minutes played for the franchise; he currently sits at 30,302. Klay Thompson and Draymond Green are both in the Top 10 as well with at least 21,000 minutes.
At the other end of the spectrum are a curious collection of players. Being a part of the Golden State Warriors organization doesn’t necessarily mean that you played significant minutes….or even any minutes at all. In fact, there are a number of players known to NBA fans who were technically on the team but never played a single minute.
Let’s take a walk through memory lane and see just which players came through town but never saw the court.
No. 12: Kendrick Nunn
Kendrick Nunn has had an up-and-down career thus far in the NBA; the 28 year old point guard has gone from undrafted gemstone to injured mistake of a signing, and at the time of writing has yet to find a team for the 2023-24 NBA season. Before all of that, however, he was a member of the Golden State Warriors.
The Warriors brought the undrafted guard in for training camp in 2018, subsequently waiving him and funneling him to their G League affiliate in Santa Cruz. He played 51 games for them, showing enough for the Miami Heat to sign him just prior to the end of the season to a multi-year deal, developing him into a starter right away.
