Veteran Buddy Hield has agreed to a $21M deal with the Golden State Warriors as part of a sign-and-trade deal, coming less than half a season with the Philadelphia 76ers (per Shams Charania of The Athletic.) The 76ers will receive a 2031 second-round draft pick via the Dallas Mavericks in the Klay Thompson sign-and-trade.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted: “free agent Buddy Hield is joining Golden State on a sign-and-trade deal guaranteed for two years and $21 million. Hield gets $18M in first two years, a $3M partial guarantee in 3rd year and player option on non-guaranteed 4th year. Warriors send Sixers 2031 second via Dallas.”

Hield,a 40% 3-point shooter in his career, played a league-high 84 regular-season games for the 76ers and Indiana Pacers. He averaged 12.1 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 25.7 minutes per game.
