Here's the understatement of the 2012 NBA offseason: New Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers will have his work cut out for him finding players that can help the team recover from last season's debacle.
Between inheriting a roster whose greatest accomplishment this past season was losing enough games to salvage a desperately needed lottery pick to working on a limited budget, Myers will have a hard time
finding quality additions.
But there are possibilities out there.
Myers will undoubtedly need to work the trade market to find that coveted starting small forward, which is something the team is reportedly trying to accomplish (via Contra Costa Times).
But teams don't often improve on the basis of one home run trade (although it's possible; see: 2011-12 Los Angeles Clippers). So Myers will need to bolster his current roster with quality, bargain free agents much in the same way his predecessor, Larry Riley, was able to find lockdown defender Dominic McGuire last offseason.
Here are five players that Myers should already be pursuing to end the team's now five-year playoff drought.
