Damion Lee has signed a two-way contract that makes him the newest member of the Golden State Warriors. Lee is currently engaged to Sydel Curry, the younger sister of Warriors star Stephen Curry.

Don’t mistake this as a clearcut case of nepotism though. Lee was terrific in 15 games for the Atlanta Hawks at the end of last season, averaging 10.7 points and 4.7 rebounds per game.

Earlier this month, Lee wrote a column for The Players Tribune detailing a long road to the NBA that included numerous injuries, as well as having the NCAA tournament taken away from him during his one season at Louisville.

Congrats to Damion on the deal. Few former Cardinals have been more deserving of something like this.
