Warriors To Sign Acie Law IV, Waive Jeff Adrien

The San Francisco Chronicle's Rusty Simmons reports the Golden State Warriors are close to signing free-agent point guard Acie Law IV, a veteran of five teams in four professional seasons, to bolster their backcourt rotation. The Memphis Grizzlies waived Law earlier this week after an uninspiring turn there, as he averaged only 1.1 points and 1.3 assists in 8.5 minutes. To make room for Law, Simmons says, Golden State will waive power forward Jeff Adrien, an undrafted free agent who made the team in training camp.

The Atlanta Hawks used the 11th pick of the 2007 NBA Draft on Law, a standout at Texas A&M. But Law has yet to stick with any team for which he's played in his brief career, and it's easy to see why: in 148 career games, Law owns per-game averages of 3.5 points and 1.6 assists in 11.8 minutes, shooting just 39.4 percent from the field.

But Golden State, mired in a 2-12 slide after an encouraging start, needs backcourt help. Sprained ankles have limited Rodney Carney and Stephen Curry of late. Meanwhile, Lou Amundson's return from the broken finger that sidelined him for the Warriors' first 20 games makes Adrien expendable.
