The Golden State Warriors officially announced roster changes before the NBA regular-season start.

GSW have signed free agent forward Axel Toupane. Last season the 29-year-old split time between the Warriors' affiliate, the Santa Cruz Warriors, and the Milwaukee Bucks.

In 9 G League games, the Frenchman posted 17.9 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 3.3 assists. He had an average of 1.8 points per 8 NBA contests. With the Bucks, Toupane became the 2021 NBA champion.

Before coming to Santa Cruz and Milwaukee, the 2.01-meter swingman played for SIG Strasbourg. Even earlier, he was a player of Zalgiris Kaunas (2017-18), Olympiacos Piraeus (2018-19), Unicaja Malaga (2019-20).

Today, the Golden State Warriors have waived forward/center Jordan Bell, along with guards Avery Bradley, Mychal Mulder, and Gary Payton II.

Avery Bradley averaged 4.3 points, 1.3 rebounds, 1.0 assist, and 1.25 steals in 12.8 minutes over 4 preseason contests for Golden State. The guard signed with the Warriors as a free agent on September 24.

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 (6 starts). The 1.91-meter combo guard 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.
