11-year veteran started 7 games last season
Cheaney averaged 7.6 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists last season, playing 26.2 minutes per game. The 33-year-old Cheaney, an 11-year NBA veteran, started seven games for the injury-plagued Warriors, who missed the playoffs for the 10th straight season.
"We are very happy that Calbert has decided to remain a member of our team," said Chris Mullin, the Warriors' executive vice president of basketball operations. "We've made a concerted effort to surround our young core of players with solid, team-oriented veterans who can help in their development, provide leadership and help us on the court, too. Calbert fits that description perfectly."
Cheaney was drafted by the Washington Wizards with the sixth overall pick in 1993. He has played for Washington, Boston, Denver, Utah and Golden State. He joined the Warriors as a free agent on Aug. 27 last year.
