With most of the big-name NBA free agents off the board, teams like the Warriors have started to fill out their training camp roster with unproven or undrafted players.
On Friday, the Warriors agreed to an Exhibit 10 contract with undrafted Purdue center Trevion Williams, The Athletic's Shams Charania reported, citing sources.

The 6-foot-10, 265-pound Williams played for the Boston Celtics during the recently completed Las Vegas Summer League, and averaged 7.4 points while shooting 45.7 percent from the field. He also averaged 6.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 14.2 minutes over five games.
Williams spent four seasons at Purdue and as a senior, he averaged 12.0 points, 7.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 20.1 minutes over 37 games. His best collegiate season came as a junior in 2020-21 when he averaged 15.5 points and 9.1 rebounds in 28 games for the Boilermakers.
While the majority of the Warriors' roster and rotation appears to be set, they should have at least one guaranteed roster spot available if Williams, recent signing Mac McLung or someone else can impress enough to earn it.

If Williams is able to make the Warriors' regular-season roster, he would add front court depth for a team that currently only has Kevon Looney and James Wiseman as centers on the roster, with Draymond Green able to help out at the position.
