Toscano-Anderson breaks the silence on leaving Warriors for Lakers
This offseason saw the Golden State Warriors lose several key role players, including Juan Toscano Anderson, who was a consummate team player.
The 29-year old spent three seasons with the Warriors, but left after the Dubs' NBA championship run for the Western Conference rival Los Angeles Lakers.
ToscanoAnderson is now in a unique position to join Steph Curry or LeBron James, two of the most important players in this generation's basketball game.
Mike Bresnahan, Spectrum SportsNet's Wednesday, July 6th reporter, asked Toscano anderson about the chance to team up with two of the most renowned players in the sport.
Toscano–Anderson may not like James's feelings, but he might have wished to be back in Golden State next season.
This is especially true for an Oakland native who spent his entire NBA career wearing a Dubs uniform.
But Golden State never gave him the opportunity to return.
Anthony Slater, of The Athletic, reported on June 29th that Toscano–Anderson was not offered a qualifying offer for $2.1 million in the 2022-23 regular-season.
Slater tweeted that the Warriors had not extended qualifying offers to Juan ToscanoAnderson ($2.1M) and Chris Chiozza ($1.9M) before today's deadline.
