Steph’s little bro put up 2.2 points and 1.0 assists in a scant 7.2 minutes over six preseason appearances after being signed as an undrafted free agent back in August. His release shouldn’t come as a shock to anybody, even his own brother. But from the Warriors perspective it’s still has to be, even in the teensiest of fractions, kinda awkward cutting the brother of your best player.
