The Golden State Warriors have tendered a qualifying offer to Two-Way player Nico Mannion. He's now a restricted free agent.
Golden State drafted Mannion with the 38th pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. He signed a one-year Two-Way contract and played with both the Golden State and Santa Cruz Warriors last season.
Mannion only saw limited action in the NBA, but played well with Santa Cruz in the G-League bubble. He averaged 19.3 points and 6.9 assists per game over nine contests, all starts.
Mannion has spent the summer playing for the Italian National Team in both qualifying games and the Olympics. After averaging 17.7 points and four assists in the qualifiers, Mannion has scored 15.5 points and handed out seven assists per game in the Olympics.
