The Golden State Warriors have signed first-round pick Patrick Baldwin Jr. to a contract, the team announced Wednesday.

Baldwin, the 28th overall pick in this year’s draft on June 23, is a 6-foot-9 winger from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He averaged 12.1 points and 5.8 rebounds in his lone college season, which was limited to 11 games due to an ankle injury.

Baldwin, 19, is still rehabilitating his ankle, and it’s unclear if he’ll play during the Warriors’ five-game summer league schedule in Las Vegas starting Friday.

He will wear number 7 for the Warriors, according to the team.
