The Warriors’ center-heavy roster became a little less so Sunday when Zaza Pachulia reportedly agreed to a one-year, $2.4 million deal with the Pistons.
Yahoo Sports was first to report the news.
The 6-foot-11, 270-pounder played with Golden State for the past two seasons, winning an NBA title in each. He is the the first player from the Republic of Georgia to win an NBA championship.
Pachulia’s departure is not a surprise. Last week, the Warriors signed free-agent center DeMarcus Cousins to a one-year deal and re-signed Kevon Looney (also for one year), adding them to a roster that included Jordan Bell and Damian Jones.
