Warriors Agree To Sign DeWayne Dedmon

The Warriors have reached an agreement with undrafted rookie DeWayne Dedmon, reports Sam Amick of USA Today (via Twitter). According to Amick, Dedmon will receive a partial guarantee on his deal with Golden State.

Dedmon, a 7'0" center, declared his intent for the draft this past spring, but wasn't one of the 60 players selected in June. After averaging 6.7 PPG and 7.0 RPG in his final year at USC, Dedmon ranked 74th among Chad Ford's list of 2013 prospects at ESPN.com. The 24-year-old worked out for a handful of teams in the weeks leading up to the draft, including the Trail Blazers, Suns, Lakers, Grizzlies, and Bucks.

The Warriors currently have 12 guaranteed contracts on their books, plus Seth Curry's non-guaranteed camp invite. Throw in partial guarantees for Dedmon and Kent Bazemore, and the club has 15 players lined up for camp, likely with more to come. Depending on how much money the team guarantees Dedmon, that commitment could give him the upper hand on earning a regular-season roster spot.

why would they partially guarantee $$$ to dedmon and not seth curry? after being on the team for a year, bazemore has the same type partial guaranteed deal that dedmon has? there’s a whole lot about this stuff that makes no sense to me. also, another C when they don’t even know what’s happening with kuzmic. and what about nedovic in the race for the G position? how can they continue to sign people when they’re supposedly at the cap. so i guess basically a few of these guys are just possibles to make the final 15. i’ve been wondering… Read more »

There are a few factors to consider here: 1. Not all partial guarantees are created equally. For instance, of those Rockets players, Reggie Williams has 50% of his minimum-salary contract guaranteed, which works out to about $474K. B.J. Young, meanwhile, only has a guaranteed of about $40K on his deal. They’re both considered “partially guaranteed” but Houston is far more invested in Williams than Young. If the team decides Young isn’t going to make the team, $40K is a fairly minuscule hit to take, relatively speaking. 2. The way the Warriors and other teams continue to sign guys even when… Read more »

Following guys like Larry Coon, Mark Deeks, and Eric Pincus on Twitter and on their respective websites is a big help. Coon’s CBA FAQ and Deeks’ blog at ShamSports are good places to start:
