4. Nick Young

The most notable addition the Golden State Warriors made in free agency was Nick Young. After his stint in Los Angeles and having one of the biggest personalities in the league, this move was always going to be a splash for the team.

He’s also a guy that can be a 40% shooter from three and he joins Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson in that regard. To have four players with the potential to shoot a 40% clip or better on the same roster is something that every other team is going to have to be worried about.

There is absolutely no fear when it comes to shooting the ball for Young. He has flash when he releases and he’ll fit right in with the team when it comes to celebrating the shot before it officially goes in.

Like Omri Casspi, Young is likely going to get plenty of more open looks than he has been used to. Playing a year under Luke Walton should have him warmed up to the philosophy of releasing when the ball touches his hands.
