It will be a family affair with the Golden State Warriors next season. Steph Curry will have a chance to play with his brother-in-law.

Former Louisville guard Damion Lee is engaged to Curry's sister Sydel. Lee played in 15 games with the Atlanta Hawks this past season, and he's joining the Warriors organization now.

According to ESPN's Chris Haynes, Lee has signed a two-way contract with the Warriors. A two-way deal guarantees that Lee will split his time between the Warriors and the NBA G League next season.

In his 15 appearances with the Hawks, the 6-foot-6 Lee scored 10.7 points and grabbed 4.7 rebounds per game. He only shot 25 percent from three-point range, so that will likely have to improve.

Lee will now have the chance to join the best team in the NBA and will have an opportunity to play with his brother-in-law.

Not bad for someone who began his college career at Drexel and then went undrafted out of Louisville in 2016.
