Guard Hudson agrees to contract
FREE AGENT WILL BACK UP DAVIS

The Warriors didn't get Kevin Garnett from the Minnesota Timberwolves, but they're benefiting indirectly from the deal that sent him to Boston.

Two people with knowledge of the negotiations confirmed Friday that the Warriors have agreed in principle with veteran point guard Troy Hudson on a one-year contract.

Hudson became a free agent in August after the Timberwolves - their roster bloated by the five-for-one Garnett trade - agreed to buy out the last two years of his contract at a cost of approximately $10 million.

Hudson, 31, will receive $1.22 million this season, the minimum pay allowed for a player with 10 seasons of NBA experience. Per league rules meant to make veteran free agents more attractive, the Warriors will be reimbursed nearly $450,000.

Hudson averaged 14.2 points and 5.7 assists per game in 2002-03, his first season with the Timberwolves. But he suffered an ankle injury during the 2003 exhibition season that plagued him for more than two years. By the time Hudson regained his health, Minnesota had replaced him with Randy Foye and Mike James. Hudson averaged 5.9 points and 2.1 assists in 34 games last season.

While Hudson is not a classic, pass-first point guard, he gives the Warriors a veteran option if Baron Davis is injured. He'll take over the backup point guard role left open in the wake of the buyout given by the Warriors this week to disgruntled Sarunas Jasikevicius.


Hopefully this doesn't cut into Monta Ellis's playing time...

pff, slightly as he knows the nba game and fits in better. its really only insurance against davis breaking himself as he is inclined to do. I wouldnt be concerned for Monta's minutes.

Monta will just play backup SG or starting..who knows. But Golden State has to bring back Pietrus. HE's a great player and athlete.

Two players right now that should be picked up soon:

Earl Boykins..Cleveland?
Mikeal Pietrus...I know miami was intrested but some teams could use his athletic ability. Houston?

i don't think he'll take minutes from ellis simply because ellis knows the system and is a better player, i think this was an unneccesary signing because the warriors have plenty of players that can play point effective

this makes sense only if they are counting on sarunas to be a non factor, and still hudson's impact will be limited

hey would have but he was a victim of the Restricted disease:

Teams are at pains to commit money pending a decision by the other team, as this clogs up their own financial situation. GS probably put it out there that they'd match as its a pretty small amount for a decent player.
He'll get interest next year unless he falls off.

I questioned why the Warriors did this. The only reason i come up with is Warriors are patching up that hole they open when they traded for size by sending Jrich for Wright, but WHY HUDSON?
