The Golden State Warriors are on the verge of signing veteran guards Avery Bradley and Langston Galloway and bringing both to training camp, The Athletic reported Friday.

Bradley, 30, has played in 598 games with seven teams over 11 seasons and has averaged 11.5 points and 2.9 rebounds per game.

He split last season between the Miami Heat and Houston Rockets and averaged 6.4 points in 27 games (six starts). He shot just 37.4 percent from the field.

Bradley played his first seven seasons with the Boston Celtics before he began bouncing from team to team.

Galloway, 29, has played in 445 games with five teams over seven seasons while averaging 8.2 points and shooting 37 percent from 3-point range.

He played in 40 games for the Phoenix Suns last season and averaged 4.8 points and shot 42.4 percent from 3-point range.

Bradley and Galloway will reportedly compete for the 15th and final roster spot with guard Gary Payton II.

Golden State has been searching for veteran backcourt help and reportedly recently worked out Darren Collison, Isaiah Thomas and Ryan Arcidiacono.

Arcidiacono agreed to a deal with the Boston Celtics on Thursday.

The Warriors have shooting guard Klay Thompson likely returning in December, after missing two seasons with injuries, to team with point guard Stephen Curry. Thompson missed one season with a torn left ACL and sat out last season due to a torn right Achilles.

Jordan Poole is expected to be the third guard with veteran Andre Iguodala also receiving minutes. First-round draft pick Marcus Moody also figures in the mix.

Golden State opens training camp on Sept. 28.
