For the Golden State Warriors, this coming offseason will be all about adding low-cost players that could make a positive impact on their second unit.
Just like a season ago, the Golden State Warriors will be Finals contenders.
While they did see Kevin Durant leave for Brooklyn this past offseason, the team should be revitalized when Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson both take the court together for the first time since last June.
Also just like last offseason, the Warriors must find cheap talent to complement their stars. The team has four players currently under a max-value contract and just a handful not on minimum-value deals. Kevon Looney is one of the lone exceptions.
For Andrew Wiggins, Draymond Green, Stephen Curry, and Klay Thompson, it’s about finding shooters, defenders and rim protectors — the attributes Golden State needs most. Last offseason, they brought in Glenn Robinson III and Alec Burks, transforming their roster.
Eventually trading both of those veterans forwards who were on one-year deals, the Warriors will look to supplement their play and increased depth this offseason. But, who would be willing to take a cut to play on a title-contending team?
Without much cap space, let’s dive into five low-value players that could play a significant role on Golden State’s team next season.
