The Warriors have been holding workouts to try and fill their 15th and final roster spot and it looks like they’ll head into training camp with two veteran wings competing for it.

Combo guards Avery Bradley and Langston Galloway have both been signed by the Warriors to training camp deals, as first reported by Shams Charania of The Athletic. Galloway played in 40 games for the Suns last season, while Bradley spent time with Miami and Houston.

Bradley, 30, is the more decorated of the two, an All-Defensive First Team selection in 2016 and a second teamer in 2013, both with the Boston Celtics. Bradley has bounced around the league since his tenure ended with Boston in 2017, spending time with the Pistons, Grizzlies, Clippers, Lakers, Heat and Rockets during the past four seasons. Bradley was on the Lakers’ championship winning team in 2020, but was not with the team in Orlando has he opted out of the bubble due to COVID-19 concerns.

If Bradley has anything left in the tank, he would fit what the Warriors need as a three and D wing who can also handle the ball. A 36 percent three-point shooter for his career, Bradley struggled from the field last year, shooting over 32 percent in just 27 games played.

Galloway, 29, has been a better three point shooter throughout his career (37 percent) than Bradley but also played sparingly last year, averaging 11 minutes in just 40 games played. The year prior, Galloway averaged over 25 minutes per game for the Pistons, averaging over 10 points per game on 40 percent 3-point shooting.

The Warriors have said they are not set on heading into the season with the 15th roster spot filled, but would like to add a backup guard if they can find the right fit. Bradley and Galloway will compete with Gary Payton II, Mychal Mulder and Jordan Bell for the final spot.
