Buddy Hield is heading to the Bay.

The Golden State Warriors are acquiring the sharpshooting guard from the Philadelphia 76ers through a sign-and-trade, sources told The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

Hield is signing a $21-million contract worth a fully guaranteed $18 million in the first two seasons, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Since sign-and-trades must be completed with at least three-year terms, his deal also reportedly contains a partial guarantee of $3 million in Year 3, plus a player option for the non-guaranteed fourth and final year.


The transaction will officially be reported to the league as part of a five-team trade including the already agreed-upon deals involving Klay Thompson to the Dallas Mavericks and Kyle Anderson to the Warriors, according to Anthony Slater of The Athletic.

Golden State reportedly agreed to send Philadelphia the Mavericks’ second-round pick in 2031 to complete Hield’s acquisition.

The two teams were first reported to be in talks over the 31-year-old late Tuesday.

Hield scored 12.1 points per game last season, splitting time between the Indiana Pacers and the 76ers, who landed him in a three-team deal in February. He posted rounded shooting splits of 42/39/92 in 32 games with Philly, 14 of them starts.

The eight-year vet is likely to replace the outside shooting Golden State lost with Thompson’s reported departure to the Mavericks. Hield, a career 40% 3-point shooter, shot 42.5% in a full season with the Pacers in 2022-23.
