OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Golden State Warriors exercised their contract options for next season on forwards Ike Diogu and Andris Biedrins.

Golden State also waived guard Devin Brown on Tuesday, the second day of training camp.

Diogu, the ninth pick in the 2005 draft, averaged 7.0 points and 3.3 rebounds as a rookie backup last season. He will make $2.29 million next season.

Biedrins, the 11th overall pick in 2004, averaged 3.8 points and 4.2 rebounds but played more sparingly. He will make $2.64 million in 2007-08.

The Warriors acquired Brown, Keith McLeod and Andre Owens in a trade that sent Derek Fisher to Utah during the summer.
