Report: Warriors ‘in Talks' With Free-agent Forward

The Warriors are reportedly targeting a former member of the Kings.

Golden State is "in talks" with free-agent forward Omri Casspi, according to USA Today Sports' Amick.

Casspi played for three teams last season.

Over 22 games with the Kings, he averaged 5.9 points and 4.1 rebounds in 18 minutes, while shooting 38 percent from 3-point territory.

Sacramento traded him to New Orleans in the DeMarcus Cousins deal.

In his first game with the Pelicans, the 6'9" forward scored 12 points on 5 for 9 shooting, and broke his thumb.

New Orleans waived him two days later.

Casspi, who just turned 29, signed with Minnesota about a month later.

He appeared in 13 games with the Timberwolves and averaged just 3.5 points over 17.1 minutes per night.

The Kings drafted Casspi with the 23rd pick in the 2009 draft.

The Warriors -- based on reported agreements -- have 11 players under contract, which means they have four roster spots to fill.
