The 2021 NBA free agency period is underway, and if you want to keep track of everything happening with the Golden State Warriors, we’ve got you covered. We’ll update this tracker with every Warriors rumor, report, and signing.
At the bottom of the post is a tracker with some of the marquee free agency moves that have been made across the NBA.
Otto Porter Jr.
Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reported that the Warriors signed 6’8 wing Otto Porter Jr. to a one-year veteran’s minimum contract. Porter reportedly turned down a larger offer from another team to join Golden State.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Warriors signed 6’10 forward Nemanja Bjelica to a one-year, veteran’s minimum contract. Bjelica just finished up a three-year, $20.5 million contract, and looked good doing so, so the vet min feels like a quality get.
The AP’s Tim Reynolds reported that forward Andre Iguodala is expected to meet with the Warriors. Iguodala played for the Warriors from the 2013-14 season through the 2018-19 season, before the team traded him to clear the cap space necessary to add D’Angelo Russell. Iguodala’s $15 million option for the upcoming season was declined by the Miami Heat.
Update: Iguodala is reportedly choosing between the Warriors, Lakers, and Nets.
Update 2: Iguodala has signed with the Warriors on a veteran’s minimum contract.
Shams Charania of The Athletic reported that Kent Bazemore, who just finished his second stint with Golden State, turned down a two-year deal from the Warriors to take a smaller contract with the Lakers.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Warriors signed Chris Chiozza to a two-way deal.
