    The Golden State Warriors have agreed to terms on a new contract with Marreese Speights, according to sources with knowledge of the deal. One source close to the process told ESPN.com that the move for Speights does not impact the Warriors' pursuit of free-agent center Jermaine O'Neal, whose former agent is current Warriors general manager Bob Myers. A person with knowledge of the deal says the Golden State Warriors and Marreese Speights have reached an agreement on a free agent contract. Marreese Speights, Toney Douglas and Jermaine O'Neal will round out the Golden State bench. Speights averaged 10.2 points and 5.1 rebounds in the final 39 games with Cleveland after coming over in a trade from Memphis last season. Speights should help fill the void left by power forward Carl Landry, who agreed to a four-year, $26 million deal with the Sacramento Kings on Sunday. He will likely come off the bench for the Warriors at both power forward and center. They could also sign the 6-foot-10, 250-pound forward/center outright using their non-taxpayer midlevel exception, starting at $5.15 million next season; doing so would put him on the books for about $16 million over the course of the deal.
