After being the first Mexican Champion in the with the Golden State Warriors this season, He was left without a team, after Steve Kerr’s team decided not to renew him for a year and more and he will be a free agent.

Why Juan Toscano was not renewed with the Warriors?

The decision is controversial, since Juan Toscano was on tour in Mexico along with the Larry O’Brien trophy, so everything indicated that he would continue with the team for another year, since the Mexican fan base grew with his presence.

But apparently to Steve Kerr did not fill his eye at the end of the season, so he decided to bench him in almost all the Playoffs including the NBA Finals and barely played a few minutes against the Boston Celtics. One of Toscano’s strengths is defensiveness, but this did not persuade the board to continue the relationship.

According to the insider Anthony Slater, of The Athletic, the San Francisco team will not honor the renewal of the contract for 2.1 million dollars that he had with Toscano, although he did not give a specific reason.

With this move, the Aztec player will become an unrestricted free agent, that means he can sign with any team interested in his services.

How did Juan Toscano get to the Golden State Warriors?

Toscano, 29, came to the best basketball in the world to participate with the Santa Cruz Warriors of the Development League, where he had notable performances and pleased various scouts in the League.

Due to his good performances, Toscano was taken to the first team in the 2019-20 campaign, where he signed for two years, the second was an option for the team, but they decided not to make it effective.

Even though the numbers of Toscano with the Warriors were not badthe Warriors will bet on the young talent that comes from the schoolboy to fill the gap left by the Mexican.

Despite his efforts, Steve Kerr never gave the title to the Oakland, California-born regardless of the 73 games where he was averaging 13.6 minutes per game, 4.1 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 0.7 steals.

Thus, Juan Toscano will now look for a new team in the NBA, his performances in the regular season and his youth could well place him in a team with young people, to pass on his experience as Champion with the Warriors.
