The Golden State Warriors' new-look roster is beginning to take shape after the blockbuster free agency signing of Kevin Durant.

KD's max contract meant the Dubs had to trim some fat from other areas of the team. Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut are now with the Dallas Mavericks, Festus Ezeli is in Portland and Leandro Barbosa has returned to the Phoenix Suns. The Minnesota Timberwolves acquired Brandon Rush.

With such a strong starting five, the Bay Area franchise are packing their rotation with veteran names, adding Zaza Pachulia from the Mavericks and now officially acquiring free agent David West after his spell with the San Antonio Spurs ended.

West is a 13-year veteran who played 78 regular season games for the Spurs - starting 19 - as they achieved a franchise-best finish heading into the playoffs.

The forward averaged 7.1 points, four rebounds and 1.8 assists per 18 minutes of action for the Texas franchise, while also shooting 54.5 percent from the field.

Throughout his career, the 36-year-old, who could win his first championship if the Warriors go all the way next season, has produced 14.8 points, 6.9 boards and 2.2 dimes a game.

Having spent time in New Orleans, Indiana and San Antonio, the New Jersey native will wear the number three during his stint with Golden State.

His arrival may not draw the same excitement as Durant, but he is a vital cog in helping the team achieve success and, importantly, comply with salary cap regulations.

The Warriors' roster is coming together.
