Dewayne Dedmon Getting Signed by the Golden State Warriors?

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

With Jermaine O'Neal out with an injury, the Golden State Warriors will reportedly call up Dewayne Dedmon from the affiliated Santa Cruz Warriors for front court help.

With Jermaine O'Neal going down with an injury, the Golden State Warriors are reportedly going right to the NBA D-League for help. But according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, they won't have to look very far.

Just weeks removed from the team's final cuts to open up the season, the Warriors will sign training camp invitee Dewayne Dedmon, who was since retained as an affiliate player by the Santa Cruz Warriors.

The D-League season won't begin until Friday, which means Dedmon, the young center, hasn't exactly had all too much time to "develop" his game since leaving Golden State. Still, perhaps he was considered much closer to making it than most think.

Bringing Dedmon back into the NBA fold allows the Warriors to take advantage of having someone aboard who already has a familiarity with their system. The thought of no one missing a beat, or having to slow things down due to a learning curve, probably works in Dedmon's favor over another free agent big man.

No stranger to calling players up from the D-League, the Warriors did so with multiple young guns last season, including Scott Machado and Malcolm Thomas.
