After winning the title last season in a convincing fashion, the Golden State Warriors are trying their best to improve their championship roster this summer. Their main priority was re-signing Kevin Durant and they did that earlier this week. A couple of days before that, the Warriors re-signed their key bench players - David West and Shaun Livingston. And if that wasn't enough, they added some more three-point shooting to their arsenal.

It was announced on Wednesday night that Nick Young will sign a one-year deal with the Warriors after it was reported that he is close to signing with the Los Angeles Clippers.

The champions add another three-point specialist

Nick Young is a 10-year NBA veteran and he spent the previous four seasons playing for the Los Angeles Lakers. Young was the 16th overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft, and his best season came during the 2013/2014 campaign when he averaged 17.9 points per game.

Last season with the Lakers, Nick played 60 games and averaged 13.2 points per game while shooting 40% from behind the arc. He solidified himself as one of the best three-point shooters in today's NBA and no doubt he will fit perfectly in the Warriors offense. The Warriors will look for him to consistently make shots off the bench, and be productive on offense and defense. Young has always been a volume-shooter throughout his career, but his effort on the defensive end has been questioned many times.

NBA Golden State Warriors

Young was a free-agent this summer and joining the Warriors seems to be the perfect chance for him to get his first championship ring. It remains to be seen how will he respond under the tutelage of head coach Steve Kerr next season.

Waiters returns to the Heat

Don't worry Heat fans, Dion Waiters is staying in Miami for a couple of more years.

Waiters decided to opt out his final year of the contract this summer, as he wanted to test free agency. Many teams were interested in signing him this offseason, including the Chicago Bulls and the Los Angeles Lakers. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Wednesday that Waiters will return to the Heat after all. Reportedly, Waiters and Miami agreed to a four-year deal worth around $52 million.

He was the fourth pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, and Miami Heat front office believes that Waiters still has a lot of potential and room for improvement.

Last season with the Heat, Waiters showed what he's capable of as he averaged 15.8 points and 4.3 assists per game. He also improved his shooting as he connected on nearly 40% of his shots behind the arc. The Heat are hoping Waiters can become the face of the franchise and carry them deep into the playoffs in the years to come.
