Now that the big fish are now out of the pond, who should the Golden State Warriors sign for league minimum?
For the 2014-2015 season, a player a with no service can be signed for the league minimum $507,336.00, and a player with 10+ years of service must be signed to a minimum $1,448,490.00.
Now, I won’t get into all of the dirty details of team reimbursements by the NBA so a team’s salary cap won’t take a full hit on certain players.
What I would like to get into is exactly who the Warriors can try and grab from the pond of available players. We will need to look at the list of players still available on the NBA Free Agent Tracker page.
The Warriors should grab a veteran with experience willing to play hard and help with the locker room.
Ray Allen – Long shot, he may retire
Leandro Barbosa – He can still score
Chauncey Billups – could be great for the locker room
Elton Brand – He would be great for the front line
Al Harrington – He was very productive for the Wizards last year
Rashard Lewis – Another long shot, but he is worth it; he can knock down some shots.
Jermaine O’Neal – He played some good playoff minutes last season, he’s worth every bit of it.
In other news:
Andrew Bynum – yes he is available
Minus Bynum, I can’t see the Warriors doing wrong by going with any of these guys. How about you?
