Golden State is still looking to add size in the paint, and they may have found some.

Ukrainian center Kyrylo Fesenko has reached a one year deal with the Golden State Warriors, reports CSNBayArea.com and Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated. It’s a one-year deal for about $1 million, using up the cap space Golden State had.

Fesenko, 7’1”, has played all four of his NBA seasons in Utah, where he largely languished on the bench. He has never appeared in more than 53 games and never more than 8.6 minutes per game.

He’s not going to give the Warriors a lot, but as they are currently playing Andris Biedrins (who has been good as a starter in two games) and Kwame Brown at the five, they’ll take what they can get.

    He was always used oddly in Utah. It seemed like he would not be in the rotation, and then an injury would occur (or “Okur” in the last instance) and he would be elevated to a starter.

    I thought he showed a few flashes; I wouldn’t be shocked if he eventually turned out to be a rotation/situational guy.
