For the past 35 years, the Golden State roster and the word ‘deep’ have been polar opposites.
Except for a few years with the Run TMC and “We Believe” squads, the Warriors have had thin benches to back up average-quality starters.
The Warriors went out and had one of their best offseasons in history by cherry-picking veterans and drafting to fill major holes on the roster. As a result, GM Bob Myers and minority owner Jerry West have lined up the Warriors with some very solid talent in the starting five and on the bench.
Veterans Jarrett Jack and Carl Landry join the team, while recently acquired center, Andrew Bogut will finally get a chance to contribute after missing most of last season with a leg injury.
The rookie class joining the Dubs roster includes small forwards Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green, center Festus Ezeli and guard Kent Bazemore. Earning a spot on this season’s roster will actually be a difficult task.
Higher expectations await the Dubs this season, and we have seen some progress in their early preseason performances.
Do they get straight A’s so far for their early preseason performance? Let’s take a closer look at the current two-deep depth chart.
