A person with knowledge of the negotiations tells The Associated Press that David West is headed to Golden State on a one-year deal to try to land that elusive championship.

The two sides came to agreement on Tuesday, one day after star forward Kevin Durant chose to go to the Warriors. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the contract cannot be signed until Thursday.

West left some $11 million on the table last season when he opted out of his contract with Indiana to try to get a title with the San Antonio Spurs. He averaged a career-low 7.1 points per game and the Spurs lost to Durant’s Thunder in the Western Conference semifinals.

The 13-year pro has never won a title.

NBA.com first reported the agreement.
