The Golden State Warriors just keep loading up. On Tuesday afternoon, they added a couple more players that can contribute right away — if needed.
According to ESPNNewYork.com’s Jared Zwerling, the Warriors agreed in principle to a deal with free-agent point guard Toney Douglas.
“Terms of Douglas’ contract weren’t immediately known.”
“He was traded by the Houston Rockets to the Sacramento Kings in February in a six-player trade that sent 2012 No. 5 overall pick Thomas Robinson to Houston.”
Golden State also added veteran power forward Jermaine O’Neal to their squad, ESPN’s Marc Stein reports.

Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted that Hedo Turkoglu and the Orlando Magic are nearing an aggreement on a buyout that would allow Turkoglu to be a free agent (if he clears waivers).
Turkoglu is a nice veteran who — in the right system — can help a contending team.
