The Golden State Warriors have signed four players to free agent contracts, the team announced Wednesday. The Warriors added free agents guard Carlon Brown, swingmen Lance Goulbourne and Tarence Kinsey and forward Rick Jackson. The 6-foot-6 Kinsey is the only NBA veteran among the signees, playing parts of three seasons in Memphis and Cleveland. He played last season in Turkey, averaging 8.1 points a game. The 6-5 Brown was a second-team All-Pac 12 player at Colorado, the 6-8 Goulbourne played four year at Vanderbilt, and 6-9 Jackson played last season in France. The signings bring the Warriors' roster to 19 players entering training camp, which opens Oct. 2.

A busy and productive offseason behind him, Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers can finally look at his reconstructed roster and say, ''I don't think we're bad on paper.''
How durable that paper will be is still to be determined.
For all the success Myers has seemingly had in the five months since the former sports agent was promoted from assistant...
Mark Jackson is not making any playoff promises for the Golden State Warriors this season.
Maybe it's a lesson learned for the talented point guard and boisterous broadcaster turned NBA head coach. Or maybe he's just tempering expectations entering his second season considering there actually are expectations with a reshaped roster built around center Andrew Bogut and point...
Andris Biedrins is signed with the Warriors through 13-14 and the team already used its amnesty provision on Charlie Bell last offseason.
Mark Jackson and Don Nelson are very different people.
Nelson was boisterous, out-of-the-box, off-the-wall and innovative. Jackson, granted still a young coach, is a bit more reserved, works on relating to players and has a completely different focus. Yes, their coaching philosophies are completely different.
Don Nelson was about offense. Everything he did was innovating...
Bob Myers said he doesn't know if Andris Biedrins can be traded or bought out.
Less than 24 months ago, Warriors rookie Harrison Barnes was the projected number one pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. After a great freshman year, Barnes and the rest of UNC's starters opted to return to UNC for a run at the NCAA Championship. His sophomore season showed little improvement over his freshman one and he was chosen number seven in the 2012 NBA Draft.
It was truly a case of David vs. Goliath. The heavily favored Dallas Mavericks versus the eighth-seeded Golden State Warriors in the first-round of the 2007 NBA playoffs.
No one gave Golden State a chance against the mighty Mavs when the unbelievable happened. The Warriors forced the Mavs to six games when one of the biggest upsets in NBA playoff history occurred.
Believe it or not, the NBA's regular season is six weeks away. To get you ready, Crossover Chronicles will be profiling a team each day for the next six weeks. This week is the Pacific Division. Today is the Golden State Warriors.
2011-12 Record: 23-43
