Former University of Colorado guard Carlon Brown has signed with the Golden State Warriors, according to Yahoo! Sports' Marc J. Spears.

Brown, 22, played at Colorado last season after sitting out a year following his transfer from the University of Utah. He averaged 12.6 points per game in his senior season with the Buffaloes, which equaled his production from his junior year as a Ute. He was a key component on two NCAA tournament teams during his college career; first, with the Utes in 2008-09, then with the Buffs last season.

Brown has the type of athleticism NBA teams love, as he has the ability to shake defenders and create his own shot. He also did this while at Utah:

With that being said, Brown's jumpshot and overall defensive ability need some work.

In addition to signing Brown, the Warriors also inked free agents Lance Goulbourne, Rick Jackson and Tarence Kinsey.
