The Warriors are signing a 17-year NBA veteran, and a former star player for the Memphis Grizzlies and Sacramento Kings.

Per Adrian Wojnarowski, the Warriors are signing Rudy Gay to a one-year deal to compete for a roster spot.

Gay, of course, was a longtime starting forward in the league, averaging a career high of 21.1 points and 3.7 assists per game with the Kings in 2014-15.

At age 37, he’s no longer that player. He spent the last two years with the Utah Jazz, playing 56 games and averaging 5.2 points, 2.9 rebounds and an assist per game last year. He shot 25.4 percent from 3-point range last year.

Golden State recently signed veteran wing Rodney McGruder to compete for their final couple of roster spots, which should make this training camp competition an intriguing one.
