With training camp looming, the Golden State Warriors have signed another player who will have a chance to make the final roster spot. Via Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports, the Warriors and former Pistons forward Tony Mitchell have agreed to a free-agent deal.

Chris Babb, a player whom the Warriors acquired in the David Lee trade, will be evaluated in training camp according to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe. Babb is on an non-guaranteed contract and will certainly need a strong showing to stick with the team as he will receive competition from camp invitees Ian Clark, Jarell Eddie and the newly signed Tony Mitchell.

As for Mitchell, he was the 37th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft and played in the D-League as well as overseas in Puerto Rico. Mitchell has career averages of 1.0 points and 1.2 rebounds in 3.8 minutes.
