Sources tell ESPN that free agent G Brad Wanamaker has agreed to a one-year deal worth $2.25M with the Golden State Warriors.
Wanamaker is set to become the backup point guard for the Warriors after having a successful season off the bench for the Boston Celtics last season. He doesn't face much competition behind Curry as Ky Bowman was released just days ago. Wanamaker may earn up to 20 minutes per contest and fantasy managers should keep an eye out for Wanamaker as he is productive in limited minutes.
Brad Wanamaker will not receive a qualifying offer from the Celtics, making him an unrestricted free agent.
Wanamaker will become a free agent after the Celtics declined his player option Thursday. He played a key role off the Celtics' bench and should draw some interest on the open market. Wanamaker averaged 6.9 points, 2.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 0.9 steals over 71 games last season.
Brad Wanamaker scored 15 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go along with three rebounds, two assists, and one steal over 28 minutes of play off the bench Monday.
Much of Wanamaker's production came as Boston led comfortably in the second half Monday. He's only considered a fantasy option in the deepest of formats.
Brad Wanamaker scored 15 points (6-8 FG) and grabbed four rebounds in 24 minutes in a win over the Toronto Raptors Friday night.
Wanamaker played well and made the most of his opportunities in the second consecutive blow out win for the Celtics. Playing with a huge lead for much of the game, Wanamaker saw similar minutes to some Celtics starters. He has been productive, but is still a contributor in a crowded back court where his time on the floor depends on match-ups and game flow.
Brad Wanamaker scored 13 points (4-7 FG) and contributed five assists in 20 minutes against the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night.
The Celtics held a 19-point lead at half and did not look back, extending their advantage to a final score of 149-115. Wanamaker played 20 minutes in the blowout victory and registered double digits in points for the second time since the restart. Despite a productive game, Wanamaker still has to compete for minutes with the Celtics regulars in the back court, making it difficult to be a consistent force on the offensive end every night.
