The Warriors have a long way to go before their roster can be considered complete.  Jarrett Jack and Carl Landry, the two best bench players from last year’s team, left in free agency.  Andris Biedrins, Richard Jefferson, and Brandon Rush were sent to the Utah Jazz in order to clear space for Andre Iguodala.  Festus Ezeli will be out for 6-9 months after he had an operation on his right leg.

A point guard is a must, but the biggest need comes in the frontcourt.  With Ezeli injured and Biedrins gone, Bogut is the only true center on the team.  Draymond Green can backup David Lee, but he is a little small for the power forward position.

The recent signing of Marreese Speights gives the Warriors a nice replacement for Carl Landry.  Although Speights can play center, he is a better fit at power forward.  The Warriors are going to want to sign a true center to give Bogut a break.  Here are five options for Golden State.
