The Milwaukee Bucks may be the best team in the NBA, and the Warriors should be ready to nab a few of their players if they thrive in the Orlando restart.
The Golden State Warriors will be at home for the Orlando restart. Sadly, they won a mere 15 games this season. Despite being one of the better teams in the league for the last half a decade, the Warriors were decimated by injuries.
Two-time MVP Stephen Curry and five-time All-Star Klay Thompson combined for just five games and the team lost Kevin Durant as well this past offseason. The team was largely led by Draymond Green and D’Angelo Russell.
After trading Russell, the Warriors got a few games in with their new forward, Andrew Wiggins. Now, with four starters set, the Warriors will enter the offseason with one goal — return to title contention.
They’ll have several avenues to do that as well.
With a $17.2 million trade exception and a mid-level exception at their disposal, the Warriors will have an active free agency period. They’ll also consider trading their 2020 first-round pick, one that is guaranteed to be a top-five pick.
With the assets in the palm of their hands that they need to improve, the Warriors may be eyeing a few of their future players in Orlando. That said, let’s look at three Bucks that fans should keep an eye on.
