The Warriors will sign free-agent center Zaza Pachulia to a one-year contract worth $2.9 million, The Vertical’s Shams Charania reports.

Pachulia, who played with the Mavericks last season, had also been linked to the Blazers and Hornets.

The Warriors are reportedly trading starting center Andrew Bogut to the Mavericks in order to clear the necessary salary cap space to sign Kevin Durant. Backup center Festus Ezeli is not expected to remain with Golden State.

Pachulia, 32, is a 13-year NBA veteran. He was acquired by Dallas in a trade with the Bucks last summer.

Pachulia played 76 games for the Mavericks last season, making 69 starts. He averaged 8.6 points and 9.4 rebounds per game.
