Which Veteran player should the warriors go for

The Golden State Warriors have a big offseason ahead of them. With Steph playing like at an MVP level and Klay Thompson return back to the court, Bob Myers will have to make those right moves to make the warriors title contenders again.

The Warriors salary cap situation will make it difficult with the talents in free agents this year, the team will have 5.9 million mid-level to work with. Mr. Meyers spoke about the add on of the veteran players to the second unit.

With the Warriors struggle throughout the season when Curry is not on the floor with coach Steve Kerr didn’t what he would get from the second unit each night they played.

Jordan Poole helped with the scoring to pressure off Curry, But they will need more to contend for a championship. Bob had mention that they have interest on some veteran who will become free agents during a media press. But when Klay suffered his Achilles some players decided not to join the warrior.

Myers mention that some players would have joined if Klay would have not have gotten injured and hope that is true so in the next month we can improve and show the Warriors can still win. That have to believe in that but with looking for a vet minimum trying to take less money they would like to play with Curry and they would love Steve. They can view us as a team who cares of their players.

They hope that Klay will be back on the court early next season which will help get veteran to come to the Bay Area.

Here are some vet the warriors can target this off-season.

Danny Green, Philadelphia 76ers

The Warriors saw Danny green up-close when he was on the run with Raptors that beat the warriors in the 2019 NBA finals. The 33-year-old now average 9.5 points and a tidy 40.5 shot percentage from the arc . Green also had a +7.5 net rating and that show that he can be a good teammate on a championship contender team.

Green may get more points offers from other teams on the open market and he might consider staying with the sixers if they make a run in the postseason.

Rudy Gay, San Antonio Spurs

The Warriors showed interest on gay last season, but it was nothing that big. Gay will turn 35-years-old in august but he still shows that he can a Capable scorer. Gay averaged 11.4 points and 4.8 rebounds in 21.6 minutes in the regular season. He shot a 38.1 percent from the 3 point line and still has an explosive game.

Gay had a +4.5 net rating it was second best player with Spurs the Spurs where a 9.9 points better with gay out on the court during the season.

Nicolas Batum, L.A. Clippers

if the Clippers get out of the playoffs for the second year in a row it would be likely that the organization will make big changes. Batum played 67 games with the clippers this year and he averaged 8.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and with 2.2 assists and shooting 40.4 percent from beyond the arc.

Batum will turn 33 in December but has shown he can still be above-average defensive player. With his 108.2 defensive rating was the fourth Best on The clippers and the team was 5.3 points better per possession when Batum on the court. Which shows he can still be a key player and would a be a good player coming of the bench.

Andre Igoudala, Miami Heat

Could the former Warrior make his return to his old team? Igoudala struggle while being with the heat only playing 21.3 minutes a game and also average 4.4 points a game his lowest in his career. With Iggy's offensive fell off as well shooting a career worst 38.3 percent from the field and a 33 percent from beyond the arc.

But his 108.1 defensive rating was his highest of his career and Miami Heat a lot better when Iggy was on the bench. The 37-year-old was a big key to the warriors 5-year run. That remains a high level of interest the warriors would have to rejoin with Andre but what is means to the franchise and his relation with the big 3, that might be worth taking a flier on the veteran side.
