Warriors Expected to Sign J.J. Hickson
The Golden State Warriors have emerged as the frontrunner to sign J.J. Hickson after he clears waivers, according to sources close to the situation. Hickson was waived by the Sacramento Kings on Monday afternoon.
Hickson will clear waivers in 48 hours and league sources expect him to sign with Golden State.
The 23-year-old played just 35 games for the Kings before the two sides agreed to a buyout. He has averaged 8.5 points and 5.6 rebounds throughout the course of his four-year career.
The Warriors currently have two open roster spots and could finalize a deal with Hickson as early as Wednesday evening.
