Golden State Signs Damion Lee, Steph Curry’s Future Brother In Law

The Golden State Warriors have the luxury of making moves that not only enhance the team but save careers (see Boogie Cousins and Sean Livingston), save legacies (see Kevin Durant), harbor basketball genius maniacs (see Draymond Green),  and basically keep the family happy while putting out the best marketing product the NBA has to offer.

In the latest twist of Warriors Family Values the franchise has signed Curry’s future brother-in-law Damion Lee, who reportedly agreed to a two-way deal with Dub Nation. Stephs  younger sister, Sydel, announced in November of 2017 that Lee had proposed and a marriage was on the horizon. 

The 23-year-old Sydel made the announcement on Instagram

The NBA G League is the NBA’s official minor league. Fans can get a glimpse at the players, coaches and officials competing to ascend to the NBA’s rank. With 30 percent of players on start-of-season NBA rosters boasting NBA G League experience when the 2016-17 season tipped off in October, the NBA G League YouTube Channel is the best place to see the future now.

Earlier this month, Lee wrote a column for The Players Tribune detailing a long road to the NBA that included numerous injuries, as well as having the NCAA tournament taken away from him during his one season at Louisville.

Its definitely a family affair, but the 6-foot-6 , 210-pound shooting guard can ball too. Lee, 25, averaged 10.7 points in 15 games in his rookie season with the Hawks in 2017. 

Golden States euphoria continues.
