After winning their first pair of preseason games in Japan, the Warriors made roster moves Monday.

Less than 48 hours after going viral for an impressive, between-the-legs dunk before Saturday’s matchup against the Washington Wizards at Saitama Super Arena, Mac McClung is being released by the Warriors, the team announced.

McClung played two games with the Los Angeles Lakers' summer league team before joining the Warriors' summer league squad.

The 23-year-old guard was a standout during summer league, averaging 13.4 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game on 45.6 percent shooting from the field and 50 percent from deep.

On July 22, McClung signed a one-year, non-guaranteed contract with the Warriors. But with lots of competition for one of their final roster spots this season, he didn't make the cut.

Golden State is looking to bring in guard Ty Jerome on a training camp deal after he clears waivers. The 25-year-old spent one season with the Phoenix Suns before being traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder as part of the Chris Paul deal in 2020.

He was a rotation player in Oklahoma City the past two seasons, averaging 8.6 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 2.8 assists in 81 combined games.

The Warriors also signed 6-foot-6 forward Anthony Lamb to a training camp deal to compete for a roster spot.

Lamb played with the Houston Rockets and San Antonio Spurs over the past two seasons and averaged 5.1 points, 2.7 boards, and 1.0 assists in 26 games.
