Warriors Audition D.J. White

TUESDAY, 4:36pm: Warriors GM Bob Myers confirmed on KNBR radio today that the team worked out White, but Myers is unsure if he’s a fit right now, suggesting that the team could invite the power forward to summer league. Diamond Leung of the Bay Area News Group passes the news along via Twitter.

MONDAY, 5:01pm: The Warriors are auditioning free agent D.J. White today, a source tells Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports (on Twitter).  The big man has spent time with the Celtics, Thunder, and Bobcats.

White spent time with the Bulls in camp over the summer but didn’t make the cut in the fall and wound up signing with China’s Sichuan Blue Whales.  The 27-year-old appeared in 12 games last season for the Celtics and found himself in the Kevin Garnett/Paul Pierce blockbuster but was promptly cut by the Nets.  Although the former first-rounder didn’t see the court much in Boston, he has been reasonably productive in parts of five NBA seasons, recording a career PER of 14.6.
