Warriors Sign Brown, Goulbourne, Jackson, Kinsey

The Warriors have officially signed four free agents, the team announced via press release. Carlon Brown, Lance Goulbourne, Rick Jackson and Tarence Kinsey will all be in camp, and though the team did not disclose the terms, it's likely they all have non-guaranteed minimum-salary deals. The moves put Golden State at 19 players, one short of the maximum number they can bring to camp, with a space left open if the team wishes to complete a deal with Alex Renfroe, who was reportedly close to signing with the team earlier this month.

We heard a report from HoopsWorld's Alex Kennedy a week ago that the team had signed Kinsey, so this just makes that move official. Kinsey is the only one of the four with NBA experience, having played parts of three seasons with the Grizzlies and Cavs, the last coming in 2008/09. The 6'6" shooting guard has averaged 4.7 points and 1.3 rebounds in 12.2 minutes per game in 109 NBA contests, with a PER of 11.0. He spent last season with Anadolu Efes in Turkey.

The 6'5" Brown went undrafted out of Colorado this June, averaging 12.6 PPG, 3.8 RPG and 2.0 APG in 28.5 minutes for the Buffaloes in 2011/12. The shooting guard played with the Bobcats in summer league, putting up 9.0 PPG, 3.0 RPG and 1.4 APG in 22.3 MPG. Goulbourne, a 6'8" swingman, also went undrafted out of Vanderbilt this past June, having put up 8.7 PPG and 6.9 RPG in 27.9 MPG in his final season for the Commodores. Neither Brown nor Goulbourne appeared in Chad Ford's list of the Top 100 draft prospects for ESPN.com (Insider only). Jackson, a 6'9" power forward from Syracuse, spent his first pro season last year with Chorale Roanne Basket in France, putting up 8.6 PPG and 5.6 RPG in 17.0 MPG.

The signees figure to compete against each other for the final spot on the regular season roster, since the team already has 14 contracts that are fully guaranteed. A 15th player, Kent Bazemore, has a deal that's partially guaranteed for $25K.
