A UCLA standout will be joining the Warriors in Las Vegas this summer.
First-team All-Pac-12 combo-guard Bryce Alford announced on Twitter Friday morning that he will be playing on Golden State’s summer league team starting in July.
Alford, son of UCLA head coach Steve Alford, was a four-year standout at for the Bruins, also making the Pac-12 All-Freshman team in 2014. After a disappointing junior year, Alford’s efficiency spiked last year as a senior when paired with Lonzo Ball in the backcourt. He shot a career-best 48 percent from the field and 43 percent from 3, while averaging 15.5 points per game.
Though Alford’s odds to make the Warriors roster are remote, if he can show he is a reliable 3-point shooter in summer league he should at least be able to secure a spot with Golden State’s G-League affiliate in Santa Cruz, or receive an offer from another NBA team that is impressed with his performances.
The Warriors open summer league play in Las Vegas on July 8th against first overall pick Markelle Fultz and the Sixers.
