    The Warriors have officially announced their acquisition of Omari Spellman for Damian Jones and a second-round pick.

    The second-rounder is for 2026 and is unprotected. For the Warriors, they save a bit of cash and take a chance on a sophomore with a more well-rounded game. Spellman will be a stretch four off the bench and has room to grow into a contributor over time. The Hawks take a flier on Jones' athleticism and he'll need to duel with rookie Bruno Fernando for backup center minutes.

    The Hawks are trading Omari Spellman to the Warriors, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    Spellman averaged 5.9 points, 4.2 rebounds, 0.6 steals, 0.5 blocks and 1.0 threes per game in 17.5 mpg as a rookie last season and will give the Warriors some frontcourt spacing off the bench. It's an area that's been lacking over the last couple of seasons, though we'd be surprised if Spellman played enough to carve out more than deep-league value. Golden State also saves about $400,000 in salary in the deal.

    Omari Spellman was able to collect 16 points, eight rebounds, three blocks and two 3-pointers in Sunday's Summer League defeat.

    Spellman went 7-of-12 from the field, looking much better after going 3-for-13 yesterday. Look for him to provide some deep-league value as a stretch big, though he will struggle to separate from the pack in a crowded frontcourt rotation.

    Omari Spellman shot 3-for-13 in Saturday's Summer League loss, finishing with eight points, eight rebounds, three blocks and a 3-pointer.

    Spellman didn't have a great statistical outing but it was great to see him back out there after a left ankle sprain suffered on March 1 cost him the rest of his season. Look for Spellman to provide the Hawks with some frontcourt spacing off the bench in his sophomore season.

    Omari Spellman (sprained left ankle), who got hurt just under two months ago, was at the Hawks practice facility in a jersey and ready to get some work in on Tuesday.

    It's good to see that Spellman is over the ankle issue that cost him more than a month at the end of the season. Spellman should have the full offseason along with the Summer League to work on his game. Spellman has the potential to be a quality contributor if he can stay healthy and in shape next season.

    Omari Spellman (sprained left ankle) did not play in Wednesday's season finale against the Pacers, ending his rookie campaign outside of top-250 value.

    The Hawks’ third rookie did not see the success his other two first-round teammates did in his debut season. He struggled to stay on the floor for long stretches of time and admitted to being a tad out of shape for the majority of the season. He has potential as a stretch big in an offense that will always encourage outside shooting, but he’ll need to come into next season in much better shape than he did this one for him to take advantage of that role.

    Head Coach Lloyd Pierce doesn't expect Omari Spellman (sprained left ankle) to play again this season.

    Pierce said that he'd prefer Spellman to get completely healthy than simply play hurt for the sake of playing. He wasn't expected to make much of an impact had he returned, and this news all but cements Alex Len as the full time starting center in light of the news that Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) will also not return this season.

    Omari Spellman (sprained left ankle) will miss at least four weeks.

    Spellman played 19 minutes on Friday before messing up his ankle and after the game he said he couldn't put any weight on it. This will likely keep him out until the fantasy playoffs in most leagues which means he's a definite drop if you own him in the first place. Dewayne Dedmon and Alex Len will most likely pick up the slack in his absence.

    Omari Spellman (sprained left ankle) will not play in Sunday's game against the Bulls.

    Spellman could not put any weight on his ankle as he left Friday's game. With John Collins (illness) doubtful, Dewayne Dedmon and Alex Len (knee; probable) will be in for extended minutes.

    Omari Spellman sprained his left ankle on Friday and had to be helped off the court to the locker room.

    Spellman couldn’t put any weight on his ankle so he won’t return to the game. Spellman ended his night with nine points, a trey, five rebounds and two assists in 19 minutes. The Hawks are pretty much down to Dewayne Dedmon and Alex Len to man the frontcourt.

    Omari Spellman will start for John Collins (flu-like symptoms) on Friday vs. the Bulls.

    Spellman had a double-double vs. the Wizards on Wednesday and he might have a shot at another big game again the Bulls, though Robin Lopez will present a bigger challenge than anyone Spellman faced on the Wizards.

    John Collins (flu-like symptoms) will not play on Friday vs. the Bulls.

    With Collins out, Dewayne Dedmon will get to eat a little more while Omari Spellman and  Alex Len could do some damage as well.

    Omari Spellman double-doubled against the Wizards with 16 points and 10 rebounds to go with two assists and four triples on Monday.

    Spellman went 6-for-12 from the floor and logged 30 minutes due to John Collins exiting with a facial injury. Spellman has shown that he can produce if he can stay on the floor so he's a speculative add in deeper leagues if Collins were to miss extended time.
