Another Portland Trail Blazers free agent target has chosen to take their services to another city.

Center Zaza Pachulia has signed a one-year deal with the Golden State Warriors, according to The Vertical.

Pachulia was a defensive presence last season for the Dallas Mavericks off of the bench.  He averaged 8.6 points and 9.4 rebounds during the season, though his numbers dropped to 6.6 points and 5.4 rebounds in the playoffs as Dallas lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder in five games.  He is entering his 14th NBA season after being drafted by the Orlando Magic in 2003.
