The Golden State Warriors have signed power forward Jeff Adrien from the NBA Development League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers, Adrien announced on his Twitter account. The move comes following Wednesday's trade of Brandan Wright and Dan Gadzuric to the New Jersey Nets for Troy Murphy. Murphy is expected to be bought out of his contract, leaving the Warriors with less than the minimum of 13 players needed to be in compliance with NBA roster regulations. Adrien, a 6-foot-7 power forward, began the season with the Warriors before being released on Dec. 9 so the team could sign Acie Law. In 15 games with Golden State, Adrien averaged 2.9 points and 3.3 rebounds in just over 10 minutes of playing time per contest. FanHouse.com

Adrien, a 6-foot-7 power forward that began the season with the Golden State Warriors, scored 30 points to go along with 12 rebounds and two blocks to lead his Rio Grande Valley Vipers past the Fort Wayne Mad Ants in the nightcap of the first of four days of D-League action on South Padre Island. "I've opened some doors, but I just have to keep doing it each night," Adrien said. "This team has really embraced me, and it feels good to be in a place where you feel wanted." Adrien's definitely "opened some doors" as the gathered scouts and agents were buzzing about the former UConn Husky and his NBA- caliber abilities despite less than ideal NBA size. "He plays a lot bigger than he actually is," one scout in attendance told FanHouse. "Even though he's not the same height most NBA fours (power forwards) are, he comes out and plays hard. He's a man among boys in the D-League." FanHouse.com

The Warriors signed Acie Law, filling their void at backup point guard. Golden State traded Law to Charlotte on Nov. 16, 2009, as part of the Stephen Jackson deal. "I told my agent," Law said, "when he mentioned this team, 'Man, that's one of the best places I've been, that I really enjoyed.' " Law, who was waived by Memphis on Dec. 4, signed for the veteran minimum -- which for him is $916,100 prorated. He played five games with the Warriors in 2009, averaging 6.2 points in 13.2 minutes. The Warriors waived rookie forward Jeff Adrien. Oakland Tribune

Undrafted rookie Jeff Adrien -- the undersized power forward who won over many fans with his bruising style -- was signed to a non-guaranteed contract. The Warriors decided to keep Adrien around instead of keeping that last roster spot open. "We've taken 15 spots for right now," general manager Larry Riley said after Monday's practice. "Jeff is on our roster. We think he's earned an opportunity to stay with us. Having said that, of course, we'll continue to search throughout the year -- whether it be this week or whether it be at the trade deadline -- we'll continue to try to find ways to improve our basketball team."
