Ognjen Kuzmic Expected To Join Warriors

A year after the Warriors selected Ognjen Kuzmic with the 52nd overall pick in the 2012 draft, the Bosnian big man is expected to come stateside. While there's been no confirmation yet from the Warriors or any Bay Area reporters, Emiliano Carchia of Sportando passes along an announcement from Unicaja Malaga, Kuzmic's team in Spain.

According to the statement, Kuzmic has decided to opt out of his contract with Unicaja Malaga in order to join the Warriors. It appears a deal with Golden State is not yet finalized, so we'll have to wait to see whether he receives any sort of guarantee from the team, or just a training camp invite. The Warriors currently have 12 guaranteed contracts on their books, plus Kent Bazemore's non-guaranteed deal.

Kuzmic, 23, averaged 6.9 PPG and 5.5 RPG in 27 Spanish League contests for FIATC Joventut Badalona in 2012/13.
