Anthony Slater of the Bay Area News Group passed along the news Friday. Alford also posted a message about the offseason deal on social media:
The 22-year-old combo guard was one of the most well-known collegiate players to go undrafted.
His overall numbers dropped during his final season with the Bruins, mostly due to a more star-studded roster with the addition of Lonzo Ball and TJ Leaf. He averaged 15.5 points, 2.6 assists and 2.5 rebounds while playing 33 minutes per contest.
Alford did showcase a significant uptick in his shooting efficiency, though. He shot 44.7 percent from the field and 43.0 percent from three-point range, which were both increases of about six percentage points from his junior campaign.

Going undrafted is sometimes a blessing in disguise. It allows a player to pick a summer-league squad with the best opportunity to showcase their skills rather than getting pigeonholed into a situation with a team where they don't fit.
Alford should slide in nicely within the fast-paced, high-scoring Warriors system. While he'd qualify as a long shot to make the Dubs' star-studded roster, he should receive every opportunity to prove himself for other interested organizations.
Clay Fowler of Inside UCLA noted the guard's sole focus is making an NBA roster and hopes he doesn't have to explore the alternatives.
"My dream has been the NBA my whole life," Alford said. "I've never been interested in going overseas. That would be a plan C, plan D kind of thing. If I had to spend a year in the D League that would be fine. Or if I had to spend a year overseas to get a shot that way, whatever it takes for me to get to the NBA, that's what I'm going to do."
Alford and the Warriors' other depth assets open Vegas Summer League play against top overall pick Markelle Fultz and the Philadelphia 76ers on July 8.
