Warriors give Biedrins 6-year, $62M deal 2008-07-30
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The Golden State Warriors re-signed center Andris Biedrins to a six-year contract worth more than $62 million Monday, retaining another restricted free agent and possibly capping a tumultuous month for the club.

Biedrins averaged career-highs with 10.5 points and 9.8 rebounds with the Warriors last season, his fourth with the club that drafted him with the 11th overall pick in 2004. He also led the NBA in field-goal percentage, making 62.6 percent of his shots.

After fielding interest from at least one Russian club this summer, the Latvian center elected to rejoin Monta Ellis, another restricted free agent who signed a six-year, $66 million deal to return to Golden State last Thursday.

"We're extremely happy to have Andris under contract for many years to come," said Chris Mullin, the Warriors' top basketball executive. "He is clearly one of the top young centers in the NBA, and much like (Ellis), he has continued to improve every season. It's not easy to find quality young big men in this league, but we certainly think we have one of them, and he's only 22 years old."

Biedrins has improved his scoring average in each of his seasons with Golden State, developing from a skinny rebounding specialist into an all-around player and a low-post scorer for the uptempo Warriors.
