Free Agent SIGNING: Warriors Ink Forward to Multi-Year Deal

The Golden State Warriors have made a free agent move, though this will hardly quiet the controversy over the departure of longtime Splash Brother Klay Thompson. The Dubs have signed veteran forward Kyle Anderson to a 3-year, $27 million deal.

At $9 million per season, it's not going to break the bank, and the Warriors get the added bonus of stealing a rotation piece away from the Western Conference rival Minnesota Timberwolves, where Anderson spent the past two seasons. 

Anderson is an elite playmaker for a big man, which does fit the Warriors' style. He's averaged 4.5 assists in his two seasons in Minny, along with 4.2 boards and 7.8 points. His three-point shooting, for what it's worth, fell off a cliff this past season as he was able to hit on just 22.9% of his long-range shots, down from 41% the previous year. That, however, is not his game, as he rarely takes more than one three per game. 

The 30-year-old 6'9" forward was perhaps best known for his dust-up with then-teammate Rudy Gobert at the T-Wolves' bench this season, and that has Warriors fans figuring he'll get along just fine with Draymond Green, who infamously choked Gobert in another incident this past year:
