Warriors free agent signs with New Team

Ty Jerome received a qualifying offer from the Golden State Warriors, making him an unrestricted free agency; however, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reported that the Cleveland Cavaliers negotiated a deal that was more favorable to Jerome than what Golden State was willing to provide.

Last season, Jerome occasionally participated in the Warriors’ rotation, and as a result, the organization extended him a qualifying offer. However, teams must deal with this reality of restricted free agency. Although the precise sum that Jerome agreed to is not yet known, Slater claimed that the agreement is too much for Golden State.

Even though Jerome was a great depth player for the Warriors’ backcourt last year, the Cavaliers were obviously impressed by his performance when he was given the chance. Along with the additional money, he should have had the opportunity to play more in Cleveland than he did in Golden State, which may have partly influenced his choice to depart.

The re-signing of Draymond Green was the Warriors’ main objective for this summer, and it has already been accomplished. Golden State will pursue free agents after tying up Green for the following four seasons, the fourth of which has a player option. They didn’t want to lose Jerome, but the Warriors should be able to find a replacement.
