Power forward David West(David West Jersey) has agreed to a one-year contract for the veteran’s minimum with the Golden State Warriors, NBA.com is reporting.
The Warriors, who have a commitment from Kevin Durant to sign with the team, will lose Harrison Barnes after rescinding their rights to the forward, who plans to sign with the Dallas Mavericks.
Barnes posted a farewell to the Warriors on Twitter on Tuesday.
West, a 13-year veteran, opted out of a $12.6 million deal with the Indiana Pacers last summer to join the San Antonio Spurs for a veteran-minimum contract worth approximately $1.5 million.
West played in 78 games with 19 starts during the 2015-16 season with 19 starts. He averaged 7.1 points and 4.0 rebounds on 54.4 percent shooting as a key cog on a San Antonio bench that produced an NBA-best plus-10.9 net rating. That rating was the best by a bench since the shortened 2011-12 season, when the Chicago Bulls led the NBA with a plus-12.7 mark.
West, 35, harbored no regrets about turning down a more lucrative financial situation with the Pacers to join the Spurs.
West played just nine minutes during San Antonio’s final game of the postseason. He had a $1.5 million player option for the 2016-17 season, which he declined.
