whoa, the warriors just signed former maverick DJ Mbenga and waived Stephane Lasme

The Golden State Warriors have signed free agent center DJ Mbenga to a contract, and waived forward Stephane Lasme, it was announced today by Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations, Chris Mullin. Per team policy, terms of the agreement were not announced.

Mbenga (Ben-ga), 27, was not drafted by an NBA team, but was signed as a free agent by the Dallas Mavericks prior to the 2004-05 season.

Mbenga will join the Warriors in New York on Monday and will wear uniform # 28.

Lasme, 24, was selected by the Warriors in the second round of the 2007 NBA Draft (46th overall). He appeared in one regular season game (11/8 vs. Dallas) and did not register a stat line. The 6'8" native of Gabon, Africa appeared in four preseason games with Golden State, averaging 5.0 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.25 blocked shots in 16.3 minutes.
