It looks like the Golden State Warriors have added yet another 3-point shooter.

Omri Casspi has bounced around a little bit during his career, but it appears that the 29-year-old deep threat out of Israel will help solidify the bench for the 2017 NBA Finals champion.

Casspi played for three teams last season, shooting just 35% from 3-point range. He was involved in the deal that sent DeMarcus Cousins from the Sacramento Kings to the New Orleans Pelicans, but played in just one game for the Pelicans before breaking his thumb. Casspi was immediately waived, then was picked up by the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Golden State’s contract situation is getting increasingly sticky with Stephen Curry garnering a $201 million contract earlier in the summer. Kevin Durant followed, signing a less-than-max-deal, but they are still stretched for cap space.

If Casspi can rebound, stay healthy, and shoot near his career average from beyond the arc, he could be a useful addition in the Warriors offense.
