The Golden State Warriors’ search to fill out their roster will continue over the next two weeks, with the franchise to workout six free agents still looking for a home ahead of the 2023-24 season.
The Warriors currently have 13 contracted players to their main roster, leaving two vacant spots of which one is expected to remain open during the first half of the season. They also have two vacant two-way deals to fill alongside young guard Lester Quinones.
The Golden State Warriors will work out six free agents covering various positional needs and with contrasting NBA experience.
According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, the Warriors are holding workouts with Dion Waiters, Tony Snell, Kent Bazemore, Juan Toscano-Anderson, Harry Giles III and Trey Burke over the next two weeks.
Former Golden State players Bazemore and Toscano-Anderson may the most notable of that list, with the pair each having played over 130 games with the franchise over multiple seasons. Toscano-Anderson was a member of the Warriors’ 2022 championship squad before leaving for the Los Angeles Lakers last offseason.
Waiters has played nine seasons in the NBA, yet has not found an opportunity since being crowned an NBA champion with the Lakers in 2020. Warrior fans may best remember him from the 2016 Western Conference Finals where he was a key rotation member of the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Snell has also played nine seasons, tallying over 600 career NBA games. The 31-year-old last played for the Portland Trail Blazers and New Orleans Pelicans during the 2021-22 season.
Burke most recently played for the Dallas Mavericks in 2021-22, with the 6’0″ guard having averaged 5.1 points and 1.4 assists in just over 10 minutes per game. Giles is the only player eligible for a two-way contract, having last played for the Trail Blazers in 2021-22.
Strong workouts could lead to official camp invites for any of the six players, providing them the opportunity to battle for a roster spot during preseason where the Warriors are scheduled to play five games.
