The Golden State Warriors quickly found a replacement for center Andrew Bogut.
After trading Bogut to the Dallas Mavericks to free up cap space for Kevin Durant, the Warriors found a new starting center in Zaza Pachulia. According to The Vertical's Shams Charania, Pachulia agreed to sign a one-year, $2.9 million deal with the Warriors.
Pachulia's performance trailed off near the end of last season, yet he should be a great fit in Golden State. He may not be a great rim protector like Bogut, but Pachulia can set solid screens and is a rugged rebounder. Last season, Pachulia averaged 8.6 points and 9.4 rebounds for the Dallas Mavericks in 26.4 minutes a game, which he can likely duplicate in Golden State.
Pachulia is yet another excellent signing by the Warriors. Golden State needed a starting center after trading Bogut and they quickly found one in Pachulia. And getting Pachulia on a on-year, $2.9 million deal is excellent value. The Warriors just stay winning.
