The Golden State Warriors have signed veteran small forward Glenn Robinson III to a two-year deal. The news was first reported by Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium.

Robinson marks the second young veteran that the Warriors have signed today, as news recently broke that Willie Cauley-Stein was joining the team as well.

The 40th overall pick in 2014, Robinson has played for four teams in his five-year career: The Minnesota Timberwolves (who drafted him), Philadelphia 76ers, Indiana Pacers, and, most recently, Detroit Pistons.

For his career, the 25-year old Robinson is averaging 4.4 points and 2.1 rebounds per game, while shooting 36.1% from three-point range.

Robinson’s contract is likely for the minimum, and features a player option for next year, which means that the young wing can opt out and elect to join free agency. That player option will cost the Warriors a chunk of change, and put them even closer to the hard cap.

Given the Warriors fiscal state, their offseason may be complete, barring any trades.

Robinson is the son of former three-time NBA All-Star Glenn Robinson.
