The Warriors were among several teams that were linked to Gay over the summer after he was waived by the Oklahoma City Thunder. That move came after Gay was included in two different trades.
Gay is now 36 years old and entering his 18th NBA season. He averaged just 5.2 points in 14.6 minutes per game with the Utah Jazz last season. Gay has multiple seasons where he averaged more than 20 points per game, but those days are clearly behind him.
The Warriors lost Donte DiVincenzo in free agency and traded away Jordan Poole, so they are looking for second-unit players who can score. Gay will have an opportunity to prove he can help in that department.
