Steph Curry is going to be teammates with somebody who will soon be a family member.

Lee spent most of last season in the National Basketball Association G-League with the Santa Cruz Warriors, where he averaged 15.8 points and five rebounds in 38 games.

Curry's younger sister, Sydel Curry, announced she was engaged to Lee in an Instagram post in November.

According to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com, guard Damion Lee agreed to a two-way contract with the two-time defending National Basketball Association champions.


It is likely that Lee will be signed to one of the Warriors open "two-way contract" slots, which allow National Basketball Association teams to call up and send down a player from their G-League affiliate throughout the season.

Free agent guard Damion Lee has reached an agreement with Golden State, league sources tell ESPN. He will have to connect on a far higher percentage than that if he wants to change his status from Curry's future brother-in-law into another Splash Brother.

He averaged 10.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.3 steals in 15 games (11 starts). He only shot 25 percent from three-point range, so that will likely have to improve.

Damion Lee could have been drafted two years ago if only he was given the chance to boost his NBA stock in the 2016 NCAA National Tournament. He played collegiately at Drexel and Louisville.
