OAKLAND — With the NBA's moratorium on free agency set to lift Wednesday, the Golden State Warriors wrapped up most of their major work ahead of schedule.

The Warriors added some depth by reaching agreements with guard Toney Douglas and center Jermaine O'Neal on Tuesday, a person with knowledge of the situation said. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because teams can't confirm moves until the new league year begins Wednesday.

Both are believed to be one-year contracts.

The moves cap a busy and bountiful period for general manager Bob Myers and his staff since free agent talks began July 1. While there will surely be additional roster moves, it's unlikely the Warriors will do any more major shuffling this summer.

Golden State already has agreements in place to sign Andre Iguodala, Marreese Speights, Douglas and O'Neal. Even first-round pick Serbian point guard Nemanja Nedovic tweeted Tuesday that he is "Officially a Warrior!" Nedovic had been working on a buyout with his Lithuanian pro team since the Warriors drafted him 30th overall.
