Ex-Warriors center Hilton Armstrong signs one-year contract with Turkish team

Center Hilton Armstrong, the journeyman who emerged as a contributor last season on the Warriors’ playoff team, signed a one-year contract with Besiktas Integral Forex, the Turkish team announced Wednesday.

The Warriors last week waived the 6-foot-11 Armstrong, who appeared in 15 regular-season games and all seven postseason games.

A six-year NBA veteran, Armstrong averaged 12 points and 7.4 rebounds in 32 games last season for the Santa Cruz Warriors to earn multiple call-ups to Golden State before being signed for the remainder of the season.
