David West Re-Signs With Warriors, Will Retire In 2018

JULY 6: The Warriors have officially re-signed West, according to RealGM’s transactions log.

JULY 1: Veteran big man David West has agreed to return to the Warriors on a one-year contract, according to David Aldridge of TNT (via Twitter). Aldridge reports that the 2017/18 season will be West’s last year in the NBA.

The details of West’s deal aren’t yet known, but a minimum salary contract seems likely. West’s minimum salary for 2017/18 is $2,328,652 but the Warriors would only need to pay $1,471,382, as outlined in Hoops Rumors’ minimum salaries chart for next season.

West, 38, sought an NBA championship the last two seasons; he was unsuccessful in his lone season with the Spurs but finally captured the once elusive gold as a member of this season’s Warriors team. In 68 games off Golden State’s bench, West averaged 4.6 PPG and 3.0 RPG while playing just under 13 minutes per game.

Once a perennial 20 PPG threat with the Hornets and a solid contributor with the Pacers, West has embraced his role as a veteran leader and it paid dividends last season. He will give it one more try for another ring next season before calling it a career after what would be 15 NBA seasons.
