3. Alec Burks

Burks had a short stint with the Warriors. They signed him in 2019 in hopes of filling in for Klay Thompson, who was set to miss the entire season with a torn ACL. Burks was in his prime and showed flashes in other stops, but the season quickly went off the rails. Kevin Durant was gone. Stephen Curry and Draymond Green dealt with injuries as the Dubs finished with a league-worst 15 wins.

Burks was on a one-year deal and crushing it in a larger role. He averaged 16.1 points, 4.7 rebounds, 3.1 assists, and 1.0 steal in 29.0 minutes per game over 48 contests before the Dubs traded him. The Warriors knew they couldn’t re-sign him and took the opportunity to get three second-round draft picks in return from the 76ers.

Burks continues to get buckets and space the floor. He was out of the Knicks rotation to begin the 2024 playoffs, but injuries opened up minutes for Burks to deliver. He averaged 14.8 points in 20.2 minutes per game and heads into unrestricted free agency with a bit of momentum.

The 32-year-old will have offers, but what does he prioritize on the open market? If he is searching for a contender, Burks likely has to take less money. He can get buckets and space the floor. The Golden State Warriors could use some offensive punch, so do not be surprised to see the franchise gauge interest in the veteran.
