Report: Warriors bringing back Juan Toscano-Anderson

Juan Toscano-Anderson, who was the Warriors’ final roster cut three days ago after being beaten out by Mychal Mulder, is reportedly returning to the team on a two-way contract.

The Warriors were hoping they could keep the former Castro Valley High star, which they were able to do Tuesday after he cleared waivers, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Toscano-Anderson will join rookie point guard Nico Mannion to fill the Warriors’ two two-way player contract limit. Both are eligible to play as many as 50 games with Golden State when they’re not with its G League team in Santa Cruz.

The 27-year-old Toscano-Anderson impressed the Warriors during his 13 games with them last season, but he was let go Saturday in favor of Mulder, who provided the Warriors with another much-needed 3-point shooter with Klay Thompson gone for the season.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr was disappointed they had to waive Toscano-Anderson, who averaged 5.3 points, four rebounds and two assists in his NBA debut last season.
