NBA rumors: Kaleb Wesson, Warriors agree to training camp contract

The Warriors reportedly have added another intriguing young player.

The Athletic’s Anthony Slater reported Wednesday night, citing a source, that Golden State has signed former Ohio State big man Kaleb Wesson to a training camp contract. 

Source: Kaleb Wesson is signing a camp deal with the Warriors. He’s a 6-foot-9 bruising big from Ohio State who can shoot it a bit. Gives them an extra big body at the outset of practices.

Wesson, 21, averaged 14.0 points, 9.3 rebounds and 1.0 block per game for the Buckeyes last season.

Measuring at 6-foot-9 and 270 pounds, Wesson has shown a deft touch from long distance, making 42.9 percent of his 3-point attempts in his third and final collegiate season.

Wesson will compete for a roster spot at training camp, along with fellow Exhibit 10 signees Dwayne Sutton and Axel Toupane. At the very least, he provides the Warriors with another body and potentially could claim one of Golden State’s two-way contracts.
