Dedmon, Warriors agree to rookie contract
by Sam Amick, USA TODAY Sports
The Golden State Warriors have agreed to terms on a partially guaranteed deal with rookie forward Dewayne Dedmon, agent Mike Silverman told USA TODAY Sports.
The 7-foot, 255-pounder averaged 6.7 points and a team-leading 7.0 rebounds per game as a junior at Southern California while also leading the team in blocks and steals. But he went undrafted in June and will compete for a roster spot on one of the Western Conference’s most intriguing teams at training camp next month.
The Warriors, who upset the Denver Nuggets in the first round of the playoffs before falling to the San Antonio Spurs 4-2 in the conference semifinals, already have David Lee, Andrew Bogut, Festus Ezeli, Jermaine O’Neal, and Marreese Speights in their frontcourt.
