It is worth noting that the Brazilian player, who played last season with the Minas Tennis Club, is not yet guaranteed in the main Warriors team, along with the stars Stephan Curry, Clay Thompson, Draymond Green and others. Since Gui was selected at 55th place of the draft, there is no definitive contract yet. But the rights of the young man belong to the San Francisco team.
This weekend’s games were part of the 2022 California Classic, the summer league’s pre-season friendlies, which will take place July 7-17 in Las Vegas. These clashes will serve as a showcase for Golden State to make a decision on the future of the young talent.
The 20-year-old winger was selected by the Golden State Warriors in the second round of enlistment last Thursday. Gui Santos is the 16th Brazilian to be inducted into the NBA and the fourth to play for the California team, after Anderson Fargao, Leandrinho Barbosa and Scott Machado.
