The Golden State Warriors will take a different route to title contention in the 2020-2021 season, and it will be one that comes with a far greater risk.
With the future in mind, the Golden State Warriors will make the Big 3 their core veteran trio next season and rely on their young guns to maintain their depth, and it could pay huge dividends for the team.
The Warriors will enter the 2020-2021 season with likely have at least half of their roster 24 or under. They should have at least six players of that age range already guaranteed a roster spot.
The Dubs will have one of the best backcourts in the NBA again, but aside from their 2015 title, they’ve needed more than just that duo. Whether it be Poole or Paschall, the Warriors will need a player to step up and fill the gap that losing Andre Iguodala and Kevin Durant has created.
The most encouraging thing is that Poole and Paschall both were excellent in their rookie season. Poole came on later in the season while Paschall showed his developed skillset from the season’s commencement.
Let’s not forget the 2020 first-round pick that is guaranteed to be a top-five selection. With a 14% of being No. 1, the Warriors may add another elite young talent, and it should be something Warriors’ fans look forward to.
For now, we just look on and hope the Warriors have found their future within these young guns, but at the end of the day, there’s no telling whether or not their inexperience will hurt them on the sport’s brighest stage.
