The Golden State Warriors announced Monday that they have acquired forward Omari Spellman in a trade with the Atlanta Hawks.
Spellman, the 30th pick in the 2018 draft, appeared in only 46 games during his rookie season. He averaged 5.9 points and 4.2 rebounds in 17.5 minutes per game as a rookie.
The 6'9" Spellman could fit in perfectly with Golden State thanks to his ability to knock down shots from the outside. He made 34.4 percent of looks from the perimeter last season with Atlanta and shot 43.3 percent from three-point range while helping Villanova win a national championship in 2017-18.
Spellman, who had 16 points and eight rebounds in Sunday's summer-league game, could provide some depth in the post for Golden State while continuing to spread defenses with the outside shot.
Meanwhile, the Hawks already replaced the 21-year-old with another stretch-4 after signing Jabari Parker to a two-year deal Monday, per Charania.
Atlanta's biggest issue was a lack of depth at center. Prior to this trade, it had only Alex Len, Isaac Humphries and second-round pick Bruno Fernando.
Jones, 24, gives the Hawks another option after starting 22 games for the Warriors last season, averaging 5.4 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game in 24 total appearances. The 7-footer could help fortify the Hawks' defense after they finished last season with the league's third-worst defensive rating, per NBA.com.
