A new face will be joining the Warriors when training camp starts next week.

The team is expected to sign point guard Will Cherry, 27, to an Exhibit 10 contract, according to Emiliano Carchia of Sportando.

According to salary cap expert Larry Coon, an Exhibit 10 contract is as follows:

“An Exhibit 10 bonus can pay the player from $5,000 to $50,000 if the player is waived by his NBA team, signs with the G-League, is assigned to the NBA team’s G-League affiliate, and stays there at least 60 days.”

Cherry, an Oakland native, has spent just one season in the NBA previously, a brief stint in 2014-15 with the Cavaliers in which he appeared in eight games. Cherry averaged 8.6 minutes while scoring 1.9 points per game.

Cherry has spent the last four years playing overseas, most recently with Croatian team Cedevita Zagreb, who he helped lead to a Croatian Basketball Cup title, while being named the Cup’s MVP.

Cherry was a three-time All-Big Sky selection during his time at the University of Montana between 2011-2013, and was twice named the conference’s Defensive Player of the Year in 2012 and 2013.
