After acquiring 6-foot-9 forward Brandan Wright, the No.8 overall pick, in last week's NBA draft, the Warriors are on the verge of adding another big man: 22-year-old Kosta Perovic, the European import they selected in the second round of the 2006 draft.
Perovic's agent, Bill Duffy, said his client and the Warriors had worked out most but not all of the details on a two-year contract to bring over the former No.38 overall pick, who averaged 12.0 points and 3.5 rebounds for Partizan Belgrade per game last season.
"He's jumping out of his skin, and so are we," Duffy said. "It's been a long journey, and he's excited to get here."
Spanish newspaper La Opinion De Malaga said that Perovic had been on the verge of signing a lucrative deal with Unicaja Malaga, one of the country's top teams in recent seasons, but Duffy said Perovic was also fielding an offer from CSKA Moscow and both of them went by the boards in favor of jumping to the NBA.
"It was his full objective to get to Golden State," said Duffy, who wouldn't go into specifics but described Pervoic's contract as being "pretty creative" and "well north of a conventional second-round contract."
Perovic will not be participating with the Warriors' Las Vegas Summer League team. Golden State announced the roster Tuesday.
