6. Emmanuel Mudiay
The Warriors are looking for a player that can step in off the bench when Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson need a rest. The best fit for this role would be a guy who is capable of making sound decisions and leading the second unit with his playmaking.
Emmanuel Mudiay is an easy selection for this position. Mudiay showed strong playmaking abilities in his rookie year with Denver, averaging 12.8 points and 5.5 assists per game. Since then, his usage has decreased each season as he has taken on smaller roles with various teams.
Mudiay isn’t going to blossom into a star but he can be a highly effective backup for Curry. He is a long athlete with above-average defense. He still has good habits on offense and can curate an offense if given a chance.
The Warriors will have concerns regarding Mudiay’s jump shot but he won’t be asked to score at a high rate. Instead, Mudiay’s best path to success is being a floor general and defender for the second unit.
