NBA Free Agency 2013: Toney Douglas, Golden State Warriors Agree to Contract

Toney Douglas was one name on the NBA free-agent market who was a known commodity as a solid backup guard who could give a team solid production when called upon.

Douglas has found a home with the Golden State Warriors after the two sides have agreed to a contract. ESPN’s Jared Zwerling had the news first on Twitter:



Douglas averaged 7.5 points and two assists per game last season in a reduced role with the Sacramento Kings. He will not see a lot of playing time with Golden State unless Steph Curry goes down, but he is a nice scoring option off the bench.

He will also have to fight for the right to be named the Warriors’ best sixth-man with Harrison Barnes potentially acting as the backup to Andre Iguodala.

Either way, talk about a great offseason for the Warriors. Things have went exceptionally well so far  as the team builds around Curry. Douglas is just the latest example.
