The Golden State Warriors are fresh off of their fourth NBA Finals victory over the past eight years. This is an organization that has seen much success in recent history and many expect that trend to continue next season. However, Golden State has some work to do this offseason. Although their core is remaining intact, a good portion of their depth is expected to hit free agency. This includes key contributors such as Kevon Looney, Otto Porter Jr, Gary Payton II, and Andre Iguodala, per Spotrac.

Part of what makes the Warriors so lethal is their depth. So they will need to either re-sign some of the aforementioned players or look for options on the open market.

Without further ado, here are 3 players the Warriors should take a look at in 2022 NBA Free Agency.

3 players Warriors must sign in 2022 NBA Free Agency

3. Jeremy Lamb

Jeremy Lamb obviously isn’t a big name free agent. But there was a time when he was one of the more promising players in the NBA. However, he has averaged around just 7.5 points per game over the past two seasons with the Pacers and Kings. Most people have written Lamb off.

But the Warriors possess the ability to take players and turn their careers around. Andrew Wiggins and Gary Payton II are examples of that. Lamb would benefit from being apart of Golden State’s up-tempo offense. He is a good three-point shooter despite laboring from beyond the arc last season.

Jeremy Lamb would provide extra depth off the bench as well. The Dubs should look into signing Lamb, who would come at a rather cheap cost.

2. nicolas batum

This depends on what kind of contract Nicolas Batum is looking for. If he is willing to take less money but join a championship-caliber team, then Batum and the Warriors would be a tremendous fit for one another.

Batum hasn’t been linked to Golden State during the offseason. But I believe he would excel as a second unit role player for the Warriors. His three-and-D approach to the game would mesh well with Golden State’s style of play. He could also serve in an Andre Iguodala-veteran type role as well. His leadership off of the Warriors bench would be vital to the team’s success.

Again, Nicolas Batum is still a good player and may request more money than the Dubs can afford due to salary restrictions. But he is in the latter half of his career and the possibility of winning an NBA Finals may ultimately entice him into joining the Warriors.

1. Kevon Looney

At 26 years old, Kevon Looney should be the Warriors main target in free agency. However, there may be teams willing to offer him more than what Golden State can afford. But Steve Kerr referred to Looney as “irreplaceable” and it would not be shocking to see Golden State move some money around in order to re-sign the big man.

Looney wasn’t much of an interior scorer during the postseason. But he was instrumental in terms of energy, hustle, and rebounding. The Dubs would have struggled mightily in the post against the Celtics during the NBA Finals without Kevon Looney’s contributions.

Golden State will need to find a reliable center if Looney ends up leaving. They have been linked to Jazz star Rudy Gobert and James Wiseman is still an option. But Kevon Looney is someone the Warriors must attempt to re-sign if possible.
