Silverbacks guard Adam Seiko has signed a summer league contract with the Golden State Warriors, the 2022 NBA champions according to sources in the USA.

Seiko, who holds the record for the most wins in San Diego Aztecs history with 120 victories, went undrafted in the recently concluded NBA draft, leaving him available to sign with any team as an undrafted free agent.

The Golden State Warriors, known for their success and emphasis on three-point shooting, have shown interest in Seiko due to his impressive shooting abilities.

In his senior year at San Diego, Seiko posted impressive shooting percentages of 45.6% from the field and 45.8% from beyond the arc.

His ability to knock down shots from deep, combined with his defensive skills, has made him a standout player in the program's history.

Seiko will have an opportunity to showcase his abilities during the 2023 Summer League in Las Vegas, where the Warriors will face off against the likes of Lakers, Pelicans, Mavericks, and Rockets.

This league provides a platform for rookies and young players to prove themselves and earn a spot on the upcoming season's roster.

In addition to the Summer League, the Golden State Warriors are scheduled to participate in the two-day California Classic beginning on the 5th of July.

They will play against the Sacramento Kings and the Charlotte Hornets.

This event is another opportunity for Seiko to make a strong impression and secure a role with the team.

If Seiko performs well and shows his value during the summer league and other preseason events, he could earn a spot on the Warriors' roster for the upcoming season, possibly in a two-way role.

Seiko aspires to follow in the footsteps of his Silverbacks teammate Ishmael Wainwright, who is already playing professionally in the NBA with the Phoenix Suns.
