As the focus is on the Golden State Warriors’ draft, the team still needs to fill its backcourt. Key re-signings include Brandon Rush and Dominic McGuire, but the Dubs need a backup point guard, particularly if Stephen Curry gets injured.
With the wealth of talent from former stars, the Warriors have a lot of choices. However, the Dubs only have the mid-level exception (about $5 million) to offer. They are building a foundation that is attractive to players at the end of their career.
