2022 Golden State Warriors Summer League: Roster, schedule, TV channel, live stream, players to watch

News Post || News Now

After a brutal run of injuries and two straight lottery appearances, the Golden State Warriors returned to the promised land last season, defeating the Boston Celtics in six games in the 2022 NBA Finals to win their fourth title in the last eight seasons. 

Now, the Warriors will embark on their master plan to win in perpetuity. They want to link the Stephen Curry-Klay Thompson-Draymond Green era with a new generation led by Jordan Poole and a trio of talented lottery picks that includes James Wiseman, Jonathan Kuminga and Moses Moody. Of course, that’s much easier said than done, but the Warriors aren’t shy about their ambitions. 

Last season was still about the vets leading the way, but the youngsters — Poole, in particular — had their part to play. Now, the goal is for the likes of Kuminga and Moody, and Wiseman when he’s healthy, to gain more experience. Given the amount of youth on the roster, it’s no surprise the Warriors are playing in two Summer Leagues this year — the California Classic and Las Vegas. 

With the action already underway, here’s everything you need to know:

Players to watch

Jonathan Kuminga: The No. 7 overall pick last year, Kuminga played sparingly to begin his rookie season, but worked his way into the rotation down the stretch and had some bright moments in the early rounds of the playoffs. He’s a remarkable athlete, and showed some impressive flashes on the defensive end, but still needs to refine his game. He’ll have a chance to do so in Summer League, though he is currently back home in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and won’t play until the team heads to Las Vegas. 

Moses Moody: While Moody didn’t play a whole lot as a rookie, he did become the youngest Warrior ever to score 30 points, when he went off against the Nuggets in March. The outside shooting ability is obvious, and he projects to be a solid rotation player at the very least. He struggled in his first game of the California Classic, however, and will be looking to bounce back when the team travels to Vegas later this month. 

James Wiseman: The former No. 2 overall pick tore his meniscus during his rookie season, ultimately needed a second surgery on his knee and hasn’t played in the NBA since. All we’ve seen of him in the last 14 months is a few games in the G League, and it’s unfortunately not clear how much he’ll play in Summer League. He experienced some swelling in his knee following his G League stint, and the team is being cautious about throwing him back into full 5-on-5 action. As of now, the team is hopeful that he’ll play in Vegas. 

Patrick Baldwin Jr.: With their first-round pick this year, the Warriors took Baldwin out of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. The former five-star recruit stayed home to play for his dad at the mid-major level, but had a disastrous freshman season that was derailed by an ankle injury. Still, the potential remains, and he was another high-upside pick for the Warriors. Whether we’ll see him this summer, however, remains to be seen. He still needs to be cleared to play due to his lingering ankle problems. 

Gui Santos: Late in the second round this year, the Warriors picked Gui Santos out of Brazil. Few would have heard of him before the draft, but he made a name for himself when he burst onto the scene with a stellar Summer League debut in the California Classic. He’s still a longshot to make the Warriors’ final roster, but he’s a player to keep an eye on for the future.
