The Warriors have re-signed Anderson Varejao, the team announced via press release. Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but Marc Stein of ESPN.com previously reported the two sides were nearing an agreement on a one-year pact.
Varejao was signed by the Warriors last season after Portland waived him. The Blazers cut him shortly after they acquired him in a deal from Cleveland, which was trying to lower its luxury tax hit. He didn’t see much action for Golden State after the trade, but played fairly well in spurts during the playoffs as a veteran presence off the bench.
Varejao, 33, appeared in 22 regular season games with the Warriors last season, averaging 2.6 points and 2.3 rebounds in 8.4 minutes per game. In 17 playoff appearances, the 6’10” center averaged 1.2 points and 1.2 rebounds in 5.5 minutes. Interestingly, Varejao is eligible to receive a championship ring from the Cavs, but since he finished the season with the Warriors, he is not interested in accepting one, Sam Amico of Amico Hoops tweets.
