After a half-season stint with the Boston Celtics, Mikki Moore is going back to the West Coast.

Moore's agent, Mark Bartelstein, told ESPN.com on Monday that the free-agent center agreed to a one-year contract with the Golden State Warriors over the weekend.

Moore's deal is for the $1.3 million, the veteran minimum.

He signed with the Celtics in March after negotiating a buyout with the Sacramento Kings after the trading deadline but struggled to make an impact with the Celtics, averaging only 1.5 points and 1.5 rebounds in 6.6 minutes in the playoffs.
