The Golden State Warriors entered All-Star Weekend with the second-best record in the NBA.
It was a situation not many thought they’d be in, but behind improved play from third-year guard Jordan Poole and the continued excellence of Draymond Green and Stephen Curry, the Warriors were able to dominate the first part of the season.
The Golden State Warriors may look to the buyout market to improve their roster, and these are the three situations that they’ll want to keep an eye on.
What is now in front of them is a couple of months of games then the real start to their season — the playoffs. The Warriors have a roster that’s already proven it can contend for a championship, having beaten the Suns, Jazz, Nets, and Bulls already this season.
However, they do have a few small flaws with the most notable being a lack of size.
While that could be fixed with the return of James Wiseman, what level he’ll be at and if he can contribute to a contending team in his second season is still unknown. The Warriors also don’t have a true backup point guard behind Curry.
With both of those needs in mind, the Warriors could turn to the buyout market for help. That said, here are three perfect buy-out situations they should be monitoring in case the veteran becomes a free agent.
