The Golden State Warriors continue to use the NBA offseason as an opportunity to bolster a roster that advanced to the Western Conference semifinals last season.

Looking to make the biggest splash following the completion of the 2012-2013 season, Golden State was heavily involved in the Dwight Howard free agency saga since the big man would certainly help the Warriors take the next leap forward.

While Howard seems set on staying in Los Angeles or signing with the Houston Rockets, Golden State made perhaps the next biggest free agent signing this week.

Inking former Philadelphia 76ers and Denver Nuggets guard Andre Iguodala to a four-year, $48 million deal, the Warriors add a consistent scorer to go along with rising star Steph Curry and the always-reliable David Lee.

In order to clear enough cap space to make the move for Iguodala, Golden State sent the expiring contracts of Andris Biedrins, Richard Jefferson and Brandon Rush to Western Conference rival Utah. In addition to taking on the three added contracts, the Jazz will receive a first round pick in the 2014 NBA Draft and an additional first round selection in 2017from Golden State, according to Yahoo News.

While the next step in loading up an already talented roster probably won't be the adding of Dwight Howard, the newest member of the Warriors still holds hope that the seven-time NBA All-Star elects to come to Golden State.

"If he comes to Golden State as well, it's going to be even scarier," Iguodala said to reporters shortly after officially joining his latest club.

Citing Golden State Warriors' head coach Mark Jackson as one of the reasons he elected to sign with the California club, Andre Iguodala believes the potential for the Warriors to reach championship status isn't far off with the talent they already possess.

"Mainly, the coach and the culture, the environment," he said when asked why he chose Golden State. I feel like they have a good culture there, a lot of great guys, great locker room. The way they've got those guys playing with such confidence, that comes from the coach. The way those young guys were playing against us in the playoffs, that's confidence."

Golden State defeated the Denver Nuggets in the first round of last season's playoffs and after putting together a 47-win regular season, the Warriors should become even more of a contender in the West with the addition of the 29-year-old.

In just one season with the Nuggets, the former University of Arizona star averaged 13.0 points per game to go along with 5.3 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 80 games. An extremely productive player since being selected with the ninth overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft by the Philadelphia 76ers, Iguodala is averaging over 15 points, 5 rebounds and nearly 5 assists during his nine-year career.
