Kwame Brown (Getty)Ken Berger of CBSSports.com reports that Kwame Brown has signed a one-year deal with the Golden State Warriors for $7 million dollars.

The Warriors had signed DeAndre Jordan to an offer-sheet this weekend but the Clippers matched the offer on Monday and will keep the younger, more talented center for a hefty price. The Warriors have been shopping for a center this offseason to beef up their defensive front. It was widely speculated that they would amnesty Andris Biedrins, but instead used the clause on Charlie Bell

Brown is notorious as a bust for Michael Jordan's Wizards, and for being complicit in the playoff disasters of the mid-00's Lakers. But very quietly he had a quality season in Charlotte. He's not worth $7 million but for a one-year, desperate to get a center, it's not the worst move in the world. He is wildly overpaid but looking around the center-short league, it's hard to find many outside of Dwight Howard who aren't overpaid. 

Still, not exactly the start Golden State was hoping for under new ownership from Joe Lacob and Peter Guber, a new management committee and new coaching under Mark Jackson.

This shows how bad management in the NBA is. They all continue to outbid each other and over pay for mediocre talent. Then they wonder why salaries are out of control.

Kwame Brown's agent is a genious.  Brown is average at BEST but consistently gets better than average contracts.  Congrats Warriors, anyone who even wants Brown would have given him at most a mid level but you gave him 7 mil?  I guess Warriors are still hoping Brown shows some of the talent of an overall #1 pick...

So can someone tell me how the owners could scream bloody murder about losing buckets of cash and be ridiculously committed to holding out for a deal with the players, only to turn around and sign guys like this junkheap dog to a $7 million contract? Guess it's another example of someone with bags of money not being any smarter than a smelly burlap sack full of rusty old clawhead hammers. Line up at the season ticket counter Warrior fans, Kwame the "quietly average" at best is on the way!

West is a consultant with the Warriors. I was expecting good things from him and was thinking of making the Warriors one of my teams to root for.  I'm sure you could have gotten him for less money. Jerry West has an opportunity  to make some good deals and someone will hire him as GM.

This guy must give you a heck of an interview. Jordon picked him first,was a trmendous bust. At some point people have to live up to their potential. Must b a heart problem. Of all the good players out there, why would u want this guy.

As if wasting Amnesty on Bell wasn't bad enough... Now we are paying 17 mill this year for 2 backup centers (Biedrins and Brown).  This is pathetic and will only take away playing time for the 2nd year defensive stud Ekpe Udoh... So much for the Front Office Dream Team we supposedly had.  I can only hope this is all part of a grand scheme to trade Biedrins and Monta Ellis for a stud that can play Defense in the backcourt.
