McClung's contract will be "standard, non-guaranteed," according to Charania, and he will have a chance to join Golden State's roster after training camp.

To displace some of Golden State's other young stars for a roster spot, though, his Summer League performance might not be sufficient.

The 2021–22 NBA season saw McClung split his time between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Chicago Bulls

He played just one game for each franchise, however, and spent the majority of the season with the G League's South Bay Lakers.

McClung will need to have a strong training camp in order to secure a roster spot given the Warriors' abundance of talented young players.
