Veteran guard Kent Bazemore has agreed to a one-year deal with the Golden State Warriors, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.

Bazemore began his NBA career with the Warriors in 2012-13 before emerging as a consistent performer with the Atlanta Hawks a few years later.

The 31-year-old split the 2019-20 campaign between the Portland Trail Blazers and Sacramento Kings, averaging 8.8 points and 4.3 rebounds per game.

Golden State was in the market for help on the wing after it was revealed that Klay Thompson will miss his second consecutive season after tearing his Achilles tendon.
