In addition to bringing in veteran center JaVale McGee, the Golden State Warriors have now signed point guard Phil Pressey, forward Elgin Cook and guard Cameron Jones, according to Kurt Helin of NBC Sports. The Warriors currently have 14 players on their roster, meaning there is room for one more.

The most notable player of the trio is certainly Pressey while unlike Cook and Jones, he has prior NBA experience.

The 5-11 point guard, who played his collegiate basketball at the University of Missouri, was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Boston Celtics heading into the 2013-2014 season. Pressey spent two years with the Celtics, although neither year was very productive. He averaged just 2.8 points per game during his rookie campaign and 3.5 points per game the following season, shooting 30.8 percent and 36.8 percent from the floor, respectively.

The 25-year-old then spent the 2015-2016 season split between the Philadelphia 76ers and Phoenix Suns, averaging 3.3 points off of 38.5 percent shooting.

On the other hand, the 23-year-old Cook is an undrafted rookie out of the University of Oregon. The 6-6 wing played three seasons with the Ducks, posting 14.8 points and 5.1 rebounds per game during his final year.

Lastly, a 6-4 guard in Jones has played the last two seasons overseas. Prior to that, he was a solid player in the D-League. In 2013-2014, the 27-year-old averaged 19.4 points off a 46 percent clip while tallying 4.1 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game with the Santa Cruz Warriors.

He was named an All-Star that year as well.
