The Golden State Warriors acquired forward/center Omari Spellman in a trade with the Atlanta Hawks and reportedly signed veteran guard Alec Burks on Monday.

The Hawks received center Damian Jones and a 2026 second-round draft pick from the Warriors in exchange for Spellman.

Spellman, 21, appeared in 46 games (11 starts) during his 2018-19 rookie season and averaged 5.9 points and 4.2 rebounds.

Spellman was the 30th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, the same slot where Jones was drafted two years earlier by Golden State.

Jones, 24, played in 49 regular season games during three seasons with the Warriors, averaging 3.6 points and 2.3 rebounds in 11.9 minutes. He won two NBA titles.

The 7-footer averaged 5.4 points, 3.1 boards and 1.0 blocks in 24 games (22 starts) in 2018-19.

The Athletic's Shams Charania reported that Burks agreed to a one-year contract with Golden State.

The eight-year NBA veteran originally came to terms with Oklahoma City at the start of free agency, but the Thunder allowed him to look elsewhere after trading All-Star Paul George to the Los Angeles Clippers over the weekend.

Burks, who turns 28 this month, appeared in 64 games last season with the Utah Jazz, Cleveland Cavaliers and Sacramento Kings. He averaged a combined 8.8 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.0 assists.
