Santa Cruz Warriors Announce 2016 Training Camp Roster

Official Release | October 31, 2016

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. – The Santa Cruz Warriors today announced the team’s training camp roster ahead of the 2016-17 NBA D-League season. The 16-man roster will begin training camp tomorrow.

The 2016 NBA D-League Draft yielded four players who will take part in the Warriors’ training camp, highlighted by 7-1 center Jaleel Roberts, who was selected 2nd overall by Santa Cruz.

Alex Hamilton, Oklahoma City’s 3rd overall selection of the 1st round of the 2016 NBA D-League Draft was dealt to Santa Cruz after the completion of the draft. Amere May Jr., was also acquired through a draft night trade with the Canton Charge, who selected him with the 18th pick of the third round.

Ferrakohn Hall, Damontre Harris, Maurice Creek, and Dennis Clifford were acquired from the local tryout player pool and will report to Santa Cruz’s training camp tomorrow.

Scott Wood, Chris Obekpa, and Elgin Cook are on the roster via the “affiliate rule,” which allocates players from the Golden State Warriors training camp directly to the franchise’s D-League team.

Cam Jones will also make his return to the Santa Cruz Warriors as an affiliate player. Jones was on the Santa Cruz Warriors roster from 2012-2014 and is the franchise regular-season leader in points (1,584) and ranks second in steals (127).

Terrence Drisdom, who was drafted by the Warriors in the 2015 NBA D-League Draft, will be returning for another season in Santa Cruz. Phil Pressey is on the Warriors training camp roster after his returning player rights were acquired by Santa Cruz from the Salt Lake City Stars, in exchange for the returning player rights to Aaron Craft and Santa Cruz’s own 2017 original 2nd round draft pick. Pressey attended NBA training camp with the Golden State Warriors, appearing in 5 preseason games.

The complete training camp roster, contingent on the successful completion of physicals, can be found on the following page.
