#4 Warriors' new signings add more bench scoring and depth

Omri Casspi and Nick Young
These two additions to the roster make Golden State an even more imposing proposition

In Nick Young and Omri Casspi, the Golden State Warriors added two savvy veterans who know their skill-set perfectly and can complement the existing players on the roster.

Young offers some firepower coming off the bench, adding great shooting, especially 3-point shooting. He averaged around 58.8% True Shooting and shot over 40% from behind the arc in the 2016/17 season for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Casspi is a strong, tall wingman, whose length, energy and scoring adds another option on the bench. The Israeli is a good passer and makes great backdoor cuts, making him an ideal fit in the Warriors' system.

With the bench now consisting of Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston, JaVale McGee, Nick Young, David West, Omri Casspi, apart from Kevon Looney and Patrick McCaw, there are solid scoring options and role players to complement the starting five.
