OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Golden State Warriors signed rookie forward Brandan Wright to a two-year contract with team options for two more years on Friday.
Wright, the eighth pick in last month's draft, was acquired in a trade with Charlotte for Jason Richardson and second-round pick Jermareo Davidson. Wright will be guaranteed about $4 million for the two seasons under terms of the collective bargaining agreement.
Wright, the Atlantic Coast Conference's rookie of the year and tournament MVP as a freshman at North Carolina, averaged 14.7 points and 6.2 rebound per game, while making nearly 65 percent of his shots.

SALT LAKE CITY -- First-round draft pick Morris Almond agreed to a contract with the Utah Jazz.
The guard will make roughly $1.7 million over two years. Almond, the Conference USA player of the year in 2007, was the 25th pick in the June 28 draft. He averaged 26.4 points at Rice.
