2. Backup point guard
When the Golden State Warriors traded for D’Angelo Russell there was an immediate issue regarding his fit with the team. He wasn’t talented enough to start over Stephen Curry or Klay Thompson but he was far too skilled to be a second-string player.
This issue was resolved when the Dubs flipped Russell for Andrew Wiggins. However, a gap still remains in the Warriors lineup. Who is going to fill in for Curry when he needs a rest?
As of now, the answer is Ky Bowman. The undrafted rookie played 45 games this season and averaged 7.4 points and 2.9 assists. His journey throughout the season was inspiring but it is unlikely the Warriors feel comfortable going to battle with Bowman as their best option off the bench.
Cap limitations hold the Warriors back from being able to find a quality backup with ease. Nonetheless, with multiple trade assets and a sizeable trade exception from Andre Iguodala, the front office has some leeway to make a move.
