Golden State Warriors Bring Back Hilton Armstrong On 10-Day Contract

The Golden State Warriors, a bit thin in the frontcourt with Andrew Bogut battling a shoulder injury, have brought back center Hilton Armstrong on a 10-day contract, according to the team’s website.

Armstrong will be available Saturday night for the Warriors when they host the Brooklyn Nets. He had been playing for the NBA Development League’s Santa Cruz Warriors since he was released on Dec. 29.

Armstrong signed with the Warriors on Dec. 11 and spent about three weeks with the team, logging 28 minutes in seven games, with six points, 16 rebounds and two blocked shots.

In 23 games at Santa Cruz this season, Armstrong is averaging 12.9 points, 7.6 rebounds, two assists and 1.8 blocks in 28.6 minutes per game while shooting 55.6 percent from the floor.

This is the sixth NBA season for the former No. 12 overall pick from Connecticut in 2006. He spent three-plus seasons with the New Orleans Hornets, then bounced around to the Kings, Rockets, Wizards and Hawks before heading overseas to play in France, Greece and China. He returned to the U.S. last season with Santa Cruz.
