Fifth-year center Kyrylo Fesenko has agreed to a one-year, $1.07 million deal with Golden State, league sources told SI.com.

The Warriors signed veteran big man Kwame Brown to a one-year, $7 million deal recently but are clearly concerned about their frontcourt in the oversized Western Conference. Veteran center Andris Biedrins has been subpar in recent years and Brown was expected to push for the starting center role, but he entered the season out of shape and was off to a slow start before playing well in Monday night's win over Chicago.

Fesenko -- a 7-foot, 280-pound center who spent his first four seasons in Utah -- was reportedly being pursued by Dallas, Miami and Toronto. He has never averaged more than eight minutes in a season but was key for the Jazz during the 2010 playoffs in which they were forced to play without center Mehmet Okur. Fesenko was a second-round pick by Philadelphia in 2007.
