The Golden State Warriors continue to make moves to improve a roster that won the NBA title back in June. A day after reportedly signing Omri Casspi to a vet minimum deal, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Golden State has signed veteran guard Nick Young.
It comes in the form of the team’s mid-level exception of $5.2 million.
Free agent guard Nick Young has agreed to a one-year, $5.2M deal with the Golden State Warriors, agent Mark Bartelstein tells ESPN.

Young bolsters Golden State’s second unit in an absolutely big way. Last season saw him average 13.2 points and shoot 40 percent form three-point range for the Lakers.
He joins a second unit that already consists of Shaun Livingston, Andre Iguodala, David West, Patrick McCaw and the aforementioned Casspi.
Some might question Young’s fit on the Warriors. But here’s a team that has not had a reliable scorer of his ilk on the bench during its three consecutive runs to the NBA Finals. Golden State now has that.
