The 22-year-old guard signed a two-way deal with Golden State Last summer after going undrafted out of Memphis. He appeared in just four NBA games as a rookie spending most of his time in the G League.

Quinones have averaged 21.9 PPG, 4.4 APG, and 4.1 RPG during Summer League. It came after a stellar season in the G League. Despite limited playing time in the NBA, Quinones showed significant potential with his fantastic year in G- League where he averaged 20.2 PPG, 6.2 RPG, and 4 APG, earning him the G LEAGUE’S most improved player award.

Golden State Warriors have extended a two-way qualifying offer to Quinones in late June. That offers give the player an option to return to his team on a two-way contract for another season with a small guarantee.

Therefore, this could end up being a good move for the Golden State Warriors.
