OAKLAND, Calif. — The Golden State Warriors have signed free agent guard Toney Douglas to a contract.

The sides agreed to the deal last week and officially announced the signing on Thursday.

Douglas played for the Houston Rockets and Sacramento Kings last season, averaging 7.5 points and 2.1 assists in 18.1 minutes per game. The 27-year-old guard gives Golden State some added backcourt depth to help alleviate the loss of Jarrett Jack, who agreed to a four-year, $25 million deal with Cleveland.

Douglas was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers with the 29th pick in 2009. He has career averages of 8.6 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 246 career regular-season NBA games with the New York Knicks, Houston and Sacramento.
