The Warriors, in need of big-man help, have signed 6'11" Keith Benson from the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the D-League to a 10-day contract, the team announced today. The news was first reported via Twitter by Skyforce broadcaster Daniel Peters and passed along by Scott Schroeder of Ridiculous Upside.
Benson was a second-round pick last June by the Hawks, but didn't make the team. He averaged 15.1 points, 7.6 rebounds and 1.4 blocks a game. The Warriors signed Mickell Gladness earlier this week, but still have an open roster spot to bring Benson on board.
