Report: Former XU star to join Warriors

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Former Xavier All-American David West will join the Golden State Warriors, according to a report on

West, a 13-year NBA veteran, is yet to announce the deal, but it would make him part of the league's championship favorite after the Warriors landed Kevin Durant.

West turned down a $12.2M player option from the Indiana Pacers last summer to play for the San Antonio Spurs this past season and will reportedly sign a veteran minimum $1.29M dollar deal to join two time MVP Steph Curry and company in Oakland this upcoming season.

West is known best by Cincinnati natives for his time at Xavier, where he was named AP National Player of the Year his senior year in 2003.

Since then, West has enjoyed a long and productive NBA career, now entering his 14th season in the league and twice being named an NBA All-Star.

West will add much needed depth in the post to a team that will now feature four current All-Stars in Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

NBA free agents can't officially sign with new teams until July 7th.
