There’s reason to believe the Golden State Warriors will be a championship-contending team next season. Klay Thompson‘s return will be the most notable piece they add, but the multiple lottery picks they may have could help as well.
The Warriors have their own pick, which will be a top-14 one, and they’ll also have the Minnesota Timberwolves’ top-three protected pick. A late-season push from Minnesota may help turn that pick into one that is taken by the Warriors.
The Golden State Warriors may be adding two lottery picks and Klay Thompson next season, but it won’t matter for these three who will remain in the rotation.
After being knocked out of the play-in tournament despite being the No. 8 seed, the Warriors have some work to do. In the form of signing players, they won’t be able to do much as they already have four max-value contracts.
Coupling James Wiseman, Andrew Wiggins, and picks could be an option in a potential deal, but the team could also just as easily bank on their prospects to improve their game. They have the high-ceiling players that proved enough this past season to get time next year.
That said, let’s dive into three players that should be expected to stay in the rotation this coming season.
