Warriors sign free-agent guard Ulis to Exhibit 10 pact

Former Suns guard Tyler Ulis (8) is now a teammate of Klay Thompson, having signed an Exhibit 10 deal with the Warriors.

The Golden State Warriors have signed free-agent guard Tyler Ulis to an Exhibit 10 contract, according to Anthony Slater of The Athletic.

The Phoenix Suns waived the 22-year-old Ulis on June 30.

The 5-foot-10, 150-pound Kentucky product averaged 7.8 points, 1.8 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.0 steals in 23.4 minutes in 71 games (43 starts) for the Suns last season, shooting just 40 percent from the floor and 28 percent on 3-pointers. Ulis was drafted by the Suns with the No. 34 overall pick in 2016. He was due to make $1.54 million before the Suns declined the option and sent him into free agency.

Sources recently told Amico Hoops Ulis would like to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
