Warriors Sign Nemanja Nedovic

WEDNESDAY, 7:58am: The Warriors announced in a press release that the team has officially signed Nedovic, so presumably a buyout agreeement was reached.

TUESDAY, 4:34pm: 30th overall pick Nemanja Nedovic is working on a buyout with his Lithuanian team, and will sign with the Warriors for the 2013/14 season, according to Marcus Thompson of the Bay Area News Group (via Twitter).

Given the uncertainty surrounding Nedovic's buyout, the Warriors' cap situation, and the available roster spots in Golden State, there was no guarantee that the Serbian guard would come to the NBA immediately. However, it appears he'll be able to sign his rookie-scale contract in the near future. As our chart shows, that would put him in line for a first-year salary worth about $1.06MM.

When Nedovic finalizes his buyout and signs with the Warriors, he'll join a backcourt that will include Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Toney Douglas. Andre Iguodala is also capable of playing both backcourt positions, and non-guaranteed players like Scott Machado and Kent Bazemore will be vying for roster spots as well.
