The Warriors added some more depth on Tuesday, inking French wing Axel Toupane to an Exhibit 10 deal, according to Anthony Slater. An Exhibit 10 contract is a non-guaranteed one-year, minimum salary pact that allows a player to make a bonus of up to $50K if he is waived and remains on the franchise’s G League squad for at least 60 days.

Toupane, 28, last played in the NBA with the Pelicans during a brief stint in 2017 in which he only appeared in two games. Toupane saw his most significant NBA playing time with the Nuggets in 2015-16, appearing in 21 games but only averaging 3.6 points per game on 35.7 percent shooting from the field.

Toupane has spent the rest of his career overseas bouncing around European leagues, most recently for Greek club Olympiacos where he played sparingly. Toupane was named as an All D-league (what is now the G-League) third teamer in 2017 and the D-League’s Most Improved Player in 2016.
