Warriors signing Marreese Speights

The Golden State Warriors reached agreement on a three-year deal with Cleveland Cavaliers forward-center Marreese Speights, a league source told Yahoo! Sports.

Speights averaged 10.2 points and 5.1 rebounds with the Cavaliers after being acquired during the season from the Memphis Grizzlies. He became a free agent after he opted out of the final year of his contract, which would have paid $4.5 million next season.

Speights will likely be the Warriors' first big man off the bench, replacing former Warriors forward Carl Landry, who agreed on a contract with the Sacramento Kings.

Speights will be playing for his fourth team in his sixth NBA season.
