The Golden State Warriors finished 8th in the Western Conference, missing the playoffs following two play-in tournament losses. The Lakers got the best of them to start and then the Grizzlies officially sent them to the offseason.
Knowing they needed some help, the Warriors went out and added Otto Porter Jr., Nemanja Bjelica, and Andre Iguodala. Those three and the Warriors two lottery picks, Jonathan Kuminga and Moses Moody, should add a level of depth to the roster.
While there is hope that most Golden State Warriors can take a step in the right direction, there could be a few players set to regress this upcoming season.
However, the Warriors may still not make the playoffs if some of their players take a step in the wrong direction. With Stephen Curry on a roster, there’s always hope that he can carry the team to the postseason.
Another nice factor that could come into play is Klay Thompson‘s return.
He’s slated to be back in late 2021 or early 2022. Either way, he should be playing well before the playoffs are set to commence which could aid Golden State’s record, especially if they’re on the verge of playoff contention.
The Warriors, to get to that level, will need a few players to continue their uptrend, but for these three, that may not seem likely.
