Kyle Anderson

While Kyle Anderson would cost just over the DPE making his addition unlikely, he would be a solid option. Anderson went from averaging 8.0 points to 5.8 last season.

His stock is low, and if he’s a buyout option then the Warriors would be all over him. But, at $9.5 million, it’d be asking quite a bit. For Anderson, he can do a bit of everything, and that’s what makes him an intriguing option.

Also, if you look at his per 36-minute averages, you can tell that he can be both a playmaker and rebounder. He averages 7.7 rebounds and 4.4 assists per 36 minutes. He’d be a welcome addition to the team’s second unit, a unit he could control and potentially thrive in.

Anderson has the potential to grow in the right system, and that system could be Golden State’s. It’s a long shot, but it would likely be a welcome deal by both parties.

If the Warriors could figure it out financially, it would make quite a bit of sense, but given Anderson’s contract, it still seems like a long shot.
