The Golden State Warriors already have free agency mode activated, and they’ll be looking for low-profile, impactful forwards this offseason.
The 15-50 Golden State Warriors will not resume play as the league is set to restart in just over six weeks.
The NBA is only restarting play with the top 22 teams, and while many with the Warriors may have wanted to play, more were thankful the NBA opted not to include them. After all, it’d be pointless games as the Warriors are the only team already outside of playoff contention.
Having been suspended for three months, the NBA is looking to restart in Orlando, hopefully easing the financial burden that would have come with completely canceling the season. For Golden State, though, the offseason is now.
The Warriors’ 2020 free agency plans will be an impactful part of the team’s ability to return as a Finals contender in 2021.
However, they’ll be playing the game of negotiations with little money unless they opt to use the mid-level exception or trade exception, two things that’ll cause them quite a bit of money given the potential cap reduction.
The Warriors will be balling on a budget. That said, let’s dive into three forwards the team can opt to add with that budget in mind.
