. He was signed to a $2 million, one-year contract with the Warriors whom he will come off the bench for.

O’Neal is a six time NBA all-star and reached an agreement on a contract two weeks ago. Golden State is likely to use the 34-year old as a backup to Andrew Bogut. Festus Ezeli is rehabilitating back from right knee surgery and is not expected back for a few more months.

The 6-foot-11 center is entering his 18th season in the NBA. He played in 55 games with four starts last season for the Phoenix Suns averaging 8.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 18.7 minutes of play.
