In a move to strengthen their roster, the Golden State Warriors have secured guard Cory Joseph for the upcoming season, as confirmed by agents Rich Paul and Brandon Cavanaugh to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Joseph's contract with the Warriors will span one year and will see him receive the veteran's minimum salary, according to Anthony Slater of The Athletic.

Having spent the previous season with the Detroit Pistons, the 31-year-old Joseph made appearances in 62 games, contributing an average of 6.9 points and 3.5 assists.

His shooting percentages were solid, with a 43 percent success rate from the field and an impressive 39 percent from beyond the arc.

Notably, Joseph boasts experience playing for several other teams, including the San Antonio Spurs, Indiana Pacers, Toronto Raptors, and Sacramento Kings.

During his time with the Detroit Pistons, Joseph displayed consistent performance over a span of two-and-a-half seasons, participating in 146 games and averaging 8.1 points, 3.8 assists, and 2.3 rebounds per game.

His well-rounded skill set and ability to contribute in multiple areas make him a valuable addition to the Warriors' lineup. In addition to acquiring Cory Joseph, the Warriors have also made significant moves to strengthen their backcourt.

They recently traded for veteran point guard Chris Paul, formerly with the Washington Wizards, and selected Brandin Podziemski, a promising shooting guard from Santa Clara University, with the 19th overall pick in the draft.

These acquisitions demonstrate the Warriors' commitment to enhancing their roster and building a formidable team for the upcoming season.
