Roughly a month before the NBA shifts back into gear and the Golden State Warriors still have not filled out their final roster spot. It is obvious they are looking for a backup guard to bolster the second unit when Stephen Curry takes his rest — but who is going to take the job?
The Golden State Warriors are still looking to fill their final roster spot. Here are three of the most realistic options to consider.
The Dubs have been searching far and wide for a bench leader. They’ve worked out names such as Darren Collison and Ryan Arcidiacono — and have plans to take a look at former Boston Celtics’ star Isaiah Thomas, as well.
The goal is clear: Sign a player who can bolster the second unit and control the tempo. Jordan Poole is a fantastic candidate to lead this charge but a more experienced ball-handler would be ideal. Especially, if it means allowing Poole to shine more as an off-ball threat.
Golden State has done a great job of filling this roster with talent over the summer. They added two promising rookies in the NBA Draft and acquired veteran names like Andre Iguodala, Nemanja Bjelica and Otto Porter Jr. in free agency.
One more solid signing could put them over the top. However, the player who makes the final roster spot will likely be more of a risk than the other names they’ve added. Here are the three best and most realistic options remaining.
