The NBA's best team is the Golden State Warriors. After spending two years at the bottom of the league, the old dynasty won their way back to the throne.

The team led by Stephen Curry had a great regular season and playoffs, and they won the Larry O'Brien trophy in the end.

But the Dubs aren't yet resting on their laurels. They lost a couple of key players who helped them get to the Finals through free agency.

Because of this, they want to improve the team by adding a few small players.

One of these moves is that the Warriors signed Trevion Williams, a big man who wasn't picked in the draught, to an Exhibit 10 contract. (via Shams Charania)

Williams is giving the Warriors an Exhibit 10 contract, which is basically a one-year deal at the minimum wage.

Williams will be able to try out for a spot on the team before the season starts.

If his play is good enough, the team could change his contract so that he can play both ways.

Last year, when the Warriors were in the Finals, it was a small worry that they didn't have enough big men.

During the playoffs, Kevon Looney was great for the team. But besides him, there were not many other choices.

After James Wiseman got hurt, the Dubs had to play more and more small-ball. It turned out well, but one bad matchup could have ended their run too soon.

When Wiseman gets back from his injury, the Warriors should be able to take the field by storm once more.

We'll see if they keep Trevion Williams around as a possible backup plan in case another injury happens.
