The Golden State Warriors will be on a mission to redeem themselves next season and adding another veteran player in free agency will be key.
Next season is going to be a major refresher for the Golden State Warriors. It wasn’t easy watching the team struggle all year long but the tides will soon be changing.
The Warriors began to see some notable signs of growth before the 2019-20 NBA season was suspended. Andrew Wiggins had a few strong games while role players such as Eric Paschall, Damion Lee and Dragen Bender each had impressive moments.
Most importantly, Stephen Curry made his long-awaited return to the court. The two-time MVP is talented enough to completely change the direction of this team but he will be even better once his backcourt running mate, Klay Thompson, recovers from his ACL injury.
Together, the Splash Brothers will propel the Dubs back into title contention. Still, the front office has some work to do before beginning their road back to the finals. According to Anthony Slater of The Atheltic, one of the Warriors’ main goals is to add a veteran wing players.
The Warriors are lacking in veteran experience and could use additional help at the wing position. It’s important the team is able to create a versatile lineup that can be trusted in big playoff moments.
Some potential names the Warriors are interested in include Jae Crowder, Josh Jackson and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Of these names, Crowder seems to be the most valuable. This season, Crowder is averaging 10.4 points and 6.1 rebounds as a role player for the Miami Heat.
