Chris Haynes and Marc J. Spears of ESPN.com reported Tuesday there's a "strong possibility" one of those high-profile veterans will join the Dubs before the 2017-18 season gets underway.
Shams Charania of The Vertical reported early Tuesday that Crawford is part of three-team trade talks between the Los Angeles Clippers, Atlanta Hawks and Denver Nuggets that also involve Danilo Gallinari, Paul Millsap and other assets.
If the teams complete the deal, the three-time NBA Sixth Man of the Year would end up with the Hawks and seek an immediate buyout, according to the ESPN.com report. That would make him eligible to sign with the Warriors as a free agent.
He averaged 12.3 points, 2.6 assists and shot 41.3 percent from the field, including 36 percent from three-point range, while playing all 82 games for the Clippers last season.
The ESPN.com report pointed out Durant and Draymond Green are "actively recruiting" the 32-year-old USC product, but the Pelicans are also heavily involved in discussions and can offer him a more involved role in the rotation.
Young checked in at 13.2 points and 2.3 rebounds per game last season. His main asset is outside shooting. He averaged 2.8 threes per contest and shot 40.4 percent from beyond the arc in 2016-17 with the Los Angeles Lakers, which would make him yet another high-end three-point weapon for the Dubs.
If the Warriors add either Crawford or Young, it would be another example of the rich getting richer in a league where the number of true contenders is limited. It would also improve the team's chances of chasing down its third title in four years.
