Still apparently looking for more bench depth, the Golden State Warriors worked out free agent forward D.J. White on Monday, according to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports.
A former first round pick of the Detroit Pistons back in 2009, White has fallen off the NBA grid and played in China this season for the Sichuan Blue Whales. He has played for the Thunder, Bobcats, and Celtics in five years in the NBA, most recently appearing in 12 games for the Celtics last season, where he averaged 2.4 points in just over seven minutes a game.
White was traded to the Nets in the Kevin Garnett-Paul Pierce deal, but was cut by the Nets, and failed to land a spot on the Bulls’ roster in the summer. He has career averages of 6.0 points and 3.2 rebounds, and has never played more than 60 games in a season.
The Warriors have an extra spot on the bench after Hilton Armstrong was not retained following his second 10-day contract. Teams may only sign a player to a maximum of two 10-day contracts before they must either release him or sign him for the rest of the reason. They could essentially do the same with White: give him a couple 10-day contracts to see if he can contribute off the bench.
