The Golden State Warriors signed veteran free agent center Jermaine O'Neal, the team announced Tuesday.

According to multiple reports earlier this month, the deal was to be for one year, but the team did not release terms of the contract.

The 34-year-old O'Neal played in 55 games -- and started four -- for the Phoenix Suns last season after bouncing back from knee problems that plagued him in recent years. He averaged 8.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.42 blocks per game,

O'Neal signed out of high school with the Portland Trail Blazers at age 18 and has career averages of 13.4 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.84 blocks in 987 regular-season games in 17 seasons.

The 6-foot-11 O'Neal is expected to provide backup in the Warriors' frontcourt next season.
