Former Ohio State basketball player Aaron Craft has officially signed with the Golden State Warriors, according to NBA.com.

Golden State elected not to release the details of Craft’s contract — nor the contracts of fellow free agents James McAdoo and Mitchell Watt, who were signed along with Craft — in accordance with team policy, the website said.

Craft played in five games for the Warrior’s NBA Summer League team and averaged 7.4 points per game to go with better than two steals, rebounds and assists per game for the summer.

The Findlay, Ohio, native played four years at OSU and earned a plethora of individual honors including being named the 2014 Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year. He played in a total of 148 games during his time in Columbus, starting every game he played in during his sophomore, junior and senior seasons. He averaged 8.9 points in his Buckeye career and became the school’s all-time assist leader with 694 helpers.

Craft is set to wear No. 2 for the Warriors after donning the No. 4 shirt at OSU, according to the NBA’s release.

Golden State’s preseason is scheduled to start Oct. 7 against the Los Angeles Clippers in Los Angeles. The Warriors’ regular season schedule is set to begin Oct. 29 against the Sacramento Kings in Sacramento, Calif.
