After a handful of free agent signings, the Warriors' roster turnover continued with another notable move.

Golden State is signing sharpshooter Buddy Hield in a sign-and-trade deal with the Philadelphia 76ers, Shams Charania of The Athletic reported Thursday, citing sources.

The Warriors will reportedly send a 2031 second-round draft pick to the 76ers via the Dallas Mavericks as part of the deal – a selection Golden State received as part of the sign-and-trade deal that sent Klay Thompson to Texas.

HIeld is signing a fully guaranteed two-year, $21 million deal that includes a $3 million partial guarantee in the third year and a player option for a non-guaranteed fourth year, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Thursday, citing sources.

Hield has been in the NBA for eight years and has earned a reputation as one of the best 3-point shooters in the league, with a career shooting percentage of 40 percent from beyond the three-point line.

Hield has made 1,322 3-pointers since the start of the 2019-2020 NBA season, the most in the league during that span. His current Golden State teammate Steph Curry has the second most with 1,264.
