Jarell Eddie may very well have one of the best shots of the training camp invitees to earn that final roster spot. Eddie is a 6’7″ guard/forward who can shoot the deep ball, something the Warriors would like to have coming off of the bench.

After four years at Virginia Tech, Eddie went undrafted in 2014. He was then picked up and waived by a few different NBA teams, before finding a more permanent home with the San Antonio Spurs D-League affiliate, the Austin Spurs. During the D-League All-Star festivities, Eddie took home the three-point contest trophy, showcasing his long range potential.

During his time in Austin, Eddie averaged 12.9 points, 3.4 rebounds, and shot a scorching 45.2 percent from deep. If everything goes smoothly for him during training camp, he may be the early favorite to capture the 15th and final roster spot for the defending champions, and could also fill a bench shooting role that the Warriors have been looking for since last season.
