The Golden State Warriors’ future looks promising for the first time in decades. The team finally has a nucleus of young players to build around, but they are still missing one piece: the small forward position.
The Warriors have four draft picks this year (Nos. 7, 30, 35 and 52) and need to make the best of them. This is also the deepest NBA Draft in years.
The biggest problem for the Warriors is they are very cap-heavy and they have Andris Biedrins' contract for another two years on the books at $18 million in total.
Ideally, that position will be filled via the draft or via a trade for a proven player like Andre Iguodala, Rudy Gay, or Nicholas Batum. There is no doubt in my mind that Warriors’ brass will secure an upgrade for that position.
