Kwame Brown Signs One-Year Deal With Golden State Warriors, According To Report

Mark Jackson has apparently just added a bit of depth to his forward line. According to Yahoo! NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski, passing along the info via twitter, Brown has agreed to a one-year deal with the Golden State Warriors. Wojnarowski says in another tweet that Brown's deal is worth $7 million.

While Kwame Brown never lived up to the promise he had as a No. 1 overall pick, he's still developed into a useful role player who is solid on the boards. The Warriors needed all kinds of help coming into the new season, but their biggest need by far is interior defense and rebounding. Brown should help improve the team a bit in both areas.

After a relatively unsuccessful stint with the Detroit Pistons, Brown had a solid 2010-11 season with the Charlotte Bobcats. Appearing in 66 games, Brown made 50 starts, averaging 7.9 points and 6.8 rebounds per game.
