It’s hard to say goodbye to the employer who gave you your first chance.
That was what Brad Wanamaker was going to do Saturday night.
Nearly two hours after the news of his one-year contract deal with the Warriors was reported, Wanamaker sent a farewell message to his former coaches and teammates with the Boston Celtics.
The Wanamaker went undefeated from Pittsburgh in 2011 and spent seven years abroad before signing with the Celtics in 2018.
Wanamaker played sparingly during the 2018-19 season and averaged 3.9 points in 36 games. But he saw his role rise last season, where he came in 71 games and bumped his numbers up to 6.9 points, 2.5 assists and 2.0 rebounds per game. Match.
Wanamaker turned this production into a one-year $ 2.25 million contract with the Warriors, a source confirmed to NBC Sports Bay Areas Monte Poole.

The Warriors will likely use Wanamaker as a backup point guard for Steph Curry. But the 31-year-old has the versatility to play both guard positions.
Clearly, Wanamaker enjoyed his time in Boston, but now he’s on his way to the bay. It’s a safe bet that he likes this.
