The Warriors signed free-agent forward Dominic McGuire, giving the team 19 players on the training camp roster.

The team announced the move Thursday.

McGuire appeared in 52 games with the Charlotte Bobcats last season, averaging 3.3 points and 3.8 rebounds in 14.6 minutes per contest. In eight starts, the 6-foot-9 forward averaged 3.8 points and 7.4 rebounds in 26 minutes per game.

McGuire was selected by the Washington Wizards with the 47th overall pick in 2007 out of Fresno State. He also spent two seasons at Cal.

Ex-Warrior Williams lands with Bobcats: The Bobcats signed shooting guard Reggie Williams to a two-year contract. Williams had been a restricted free agent, but the Warriors rescinded his rights in their efforts to sign a center. He played in 80 games last season for the Warriors and averaged 9.2 points.

Preseason TV: Both the Warriors’ preseason games will air on Comcast SportsNet. Saturday’s home game against the Sacramento Kings will air at 7:30 p.m. on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, while Tuesday’s game against the Kings in Sacramento will air at 7 p.m. on Comcast SportsNet California. Unlike the regular season, both games will be available in both the Kings’ and the Warriors’ broadcast territories.

Toy drive: The Warriors are holding a toy drive for Saturday’s preseason game against the Kings. All fans are asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy in support of the 2011 Oakland Mayor’s Community Toy Drive. The first 400 fans who drop off a toy when they enter Oracle Arena will receive a voucher that gains them entrance to an exclusive postgame “chalk talk” with select Warriors players immediately following Saturday night’s contest.
