Will Cherry is expected to join the Golden State Warriors on an Exhibit 10 contract, a source told Sportando.

You may be asking yourself: "What the heck is an Exhibit 10 contract?"
As CBA (collective bargaining agreement) guru Larry Coon writes:
An Exhibit 10 bonus can pay the player from $5,000 to $50,000 if the player is waived by his NBA team, signs with the G-League, is assigned to the NBA team's G-League affiliate, and stays there at least 60 days.
If you are a fan of the Santa Cruz Warriors, you can expect to see Cherry play in Surf City a lot.
The 6'0, 180-pound 27-year old -- who went to McClymonds High School in Oakland and played his college ball at Montana -- averaged 1.9 points over eight appearances with the Cavs in 2014-15.
He played overseas the last three years -- averaging 11.0 points and 3.5 assists for Cedevita in Croatia.
