Warriors acquire Buddy Hield in deal and trade with 76ers – NBC Sports Bay Area & California

After a handful of free agent signings, the Warriors roster shuffle continues with another notable move.

Golden State is acquiring sharpshooting guard Buddy Hield in a sign-and-trade with the Philadelphia 76ers, The Athletic’s Shams Sarania reported Thursday, citing sources.

For the 76 players in the deal, the Warriors are reportedly sending a 2031 second-round draft pick via the Dallas Mavericks — which Golden State received in the sign-and-trade that sent Klay Thompson to Texas.

HIeld has signed a fully guaranteed two-year, $21 million contract that includes $3 million partially guaranteed in the third year and a player-option for a non-guaranteed fourth year, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Thursday, citing sources.

Hilde is a Eight-year NBA veteranEarned a reputation as one of the league’s best 3-point marksmen, posting a 40-percent shooting percentage from beyond the arc.

Hield has made 1,322 3-pointers since the start of the 2019-2020 NBA season, leading his current Golden State team in the league over that span. Teammate Steph Curry is second with 1,264.

As the Warriors enter a new era without Thompson, the splash pro gives Golden State some much-needed floor spacing after leaving for Dallas.
