NBA free agency: Toney Douglas will join Warriors, according to report

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The Golden State Warriors will hire Toney Douglas to replace Jarrett Jack as the team's backup point guard next season.

Toney Douglas will do what he does with the Golden State Warriors next season, according to ESPN New York's Jared Zwerling. Douglas spent the first three years of his NBA career with the New York Knicks before splitting time last season between the Houston Rockets and Sacramento Kings.

The 6'2 guard is loaded with potential, but hasn't been able to put it all together in order to be a consistent contributor at the NBA level. He's a solid backup point guard option, though, and is known as a solid defender around the league.

Terms of the agreement haven't been disclosed as of yet, but one would think Douglas will come at a considerably cheaper price than Jarrett Jack -- the man that he's replacing as the backup guard in the Warriors' talented backcourt.

Douglas likely impressed Golden State's front office and fans when he played against them last year, by the way. According to Ethan Strauss, Warriors sharpshooter Stephen Curry made just 11 of his 41 shot attempts in games against Douglas' team last season.
