The Golden State Warriors have match G/F Kelenna Azubuike’s 3-year, $9 million dollar contract offer submitted by the Clippers last week. The Warriors matched the offer in part because of Maurice Evans renegging on a contract he was about to sign with them earlier this week. In fact, Evans signed a 3-year, $7.5 million dollar contract with the Hawks earlier today. Azubuike played in 81 games (17 starts) with the Warriors last season and he averaged 21.4 minutes, 8.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 0.9 assists per game. He brings instant offense off the bench for the Warriors and that should continue for the near future. He has now played in 122 games (26 starts) in his NBA career and he has averaged 19.7 minutes, 8.1 points, 3.4 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game. Look for Azubuike to be well worth the cash the Warriors’ are giving him and it was smart to keep him away from the Clippers.
