Warriors sign free agent G-F Cheaney
OAKLAND, Californoa - The Golden State Warriors, who have not made the playoffs since 1993-94, continue their trend of signing players with postseason experience.
Swingman Calbert Cheaney, who played for the Utah Jazz last season, signed Wednesday with the Warriors.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"We feel fortunate to add another player who was a starter for a playoff team last season," said Warriors general manager Garry St. Jean. "Calbert adds more depth to our squad and is another player who can play two positions, shooting guard and small forward. In the overall scheme of things, we've not only improved our team's long-term flexibility in recent weeks, but we've acquired four players who played significant roles on playoff teams last season."
Cheaney, 32, has spent 10 seasons in the league, averaging 10.6 points and 3.3 rebounds in 649 career games with Washington, Boston, Denver and Utah. This past season, he started 74 of 81 games for the Jazz, averaging 8.6 points and 3.5 rebounds. In the playoffs, he scored 15 points in Utah's Game Three win over Sacramento.
