The Golden State Warriors have filled their 20-man training camp roster by finalizing 3 signings on Friday morning. The team has signed Langston Galloway, Avery Bradley, and Jordan Bell to training camp deals according to tweets by Shams Charania, Anthony Slater, and Marc Spears. Let’s take a look at what the team is getting with each player.
Langston Galloway, PG/SG
The Golden State Warriors are signing free agent guard Langston Galloway to a training camp deal, sources tell me and @anthonyVslater.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) September 24, 2021
Galloway, 29-years-old, has bounced around the league since being drafted by the New York Knicks in 2014. Last season, he played for the Phoenix Suns where he averaged 4.8 points in 11 minutes per game off the bench. Galloway served as a veteran locker room presence and mentor to the team’s young players as they played their way into the NBA Finals. Prior to that, Galloway played 3 seasons with the Detroit Pistons where he had significantly more playing time averaging 21 minutes per game during his time there. His best season with the Pistons came during the 2019-20 season where he averaged 10.3 points and 40% from the 3-point line on 5 attempts per game. Galloway would provide serviceable guard depth for the team.
Avery Bradley, SG
Free agent Avery Bradley has agreed to a deal with the Golden State Warriors, sources tell me and @anthonyVslater.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) September 24, 2021
Bradley, 30-years-old, has played for 7 different teams in his career. He is most known for his time with the Boston Celtics where he was First Team All-Defense in 2016 and Second Team All-Defense in 2013. He mostly recently played for the Houston Rockets after being traded from the Miami Heat at last season’s trade deadline. From his 27 games played with both teams, Bradley averaged 6.4 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 1.7 assists while shooting 32.7% from the 3-point line. Although Bradley was mostly inactive during the season due to injuries, there is still hope that he can provide the team with good enough defense on the perimeter.
Jordan Bell, PF/C
The Warriors are bringing forward Jordan Bell to training camp as a non-roster invitee, a source told @TheUndefeated @espn. Bell previously played for Golden State from 2017-19 and last season.— Marc J. Spears (@MarcJSpears) September 24, 2021
Jordan Bell, 26-years-old, played for the Washington Wizards before joining the Warriors roster late in the season. Although he only played 1 game for them last year, Bell has a familiarity with the team after being drafted by them in 2017. Bell would help add experience and depth to the Warriors’ front court.
What it Means for the Roster
The flurry of signings by the Warriors on Friday finalizes the team’s 20-man training camp roster. Since all 3 of Galloway, Bradley and Bell signed to training camp deals, they will be competing for the final spot on the team’s 15-man regular season roster for the upcoming season.
