Current Warriors Roster Status

The Golden State Warriors were the worst team in the league last season. They finished with a 15-50 record, and clearly, the Dubs want to return to their winning ways this season.

The Warriors suffered a terrible blow prior to the start of the 2020-21 campaign, with Klay Thompson suffering a season-ending Achilles tear. This forced the hand of Golden State to try and find a replacement for the All-Star two guard, which came in the form of Kelly Oubre Jr. The Dubs sent two future draft picks to the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for the 25-year-old small forward.

Another key addition for the Warriors was second overall pick James Wiseman. The 7-foot center provides Golden State with a more conventional center and coach Steve Kerr will insert the 19-year-old to the starting lineup immediately.

Along with Wiseman, the Warriors will also field Stephen Curry, Oubre, Andrew Wiggins, and Draymond Green as the squad's starting lineup.

Golden State also lost a number of guys during the offseason in Dragan Bender (free agent), Ky Bowman (waived), and Juan Toscano-Anderson (waived). They did bring in a couple of fresh faces via free agency in Kent Bazemore and Brad Wanamaker.

This is no longer the dynasty Warriors that dominated the league over the past few years, but it would be foolish to count out the Dubs this season. After all, they still have the best shooter of all time in their lineup, and that will always give them a fighting chance.

golden state warriors Team Analysis

Who Did The Warriors Recently Sign?

The Warriors don't have much cap room to work with, which resulted in a rather modest offseason for them in terms of acquiring new players via free agency.

They did add a couple of fresh faces to the squad. 31-year-old veteran Kent Bazemore, who ended last season with the Sacramento Kings, signed with the Warriors on a one-year deal. Similarly, former Boston Celtics point guard Brad Wanamaker also signed on a single-season contract for $2.3 million.

Who Are The Warriors Targeting In Free Agency?

In the nearest free agency, Lakers center Dwight Howardhas been rumored to be sought after by the Warriors in 2020 following his renewed role on his former team leading to a ring.

At a later date, the Warriorshave been long linked to Bucks star and two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, who can become a free agent in 2021. An Antetokounmpo arrival for Golden State would be their second coup de grâce in five years following the Kevin Durant landmark signing.

Who Did The Warriors Most Recently Trade For?

With a lack of flexibility in their cap room situation, the Warriors knew that the only way they could significantly upgrade their squad for the coming season was via trades.

They did just that by bringing in Kelly Oubre Jr. from the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for a 2021 first-round pick and two 2021 second-round picks. Oubre, who averaged 18.7 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 1.3 steals per game for the Phoenix Suns last season, was earlier traded to the Thunder as part of the Chris Paul deal. Golden State quickly pounced on the opportunity to pry him away from the Thunder in the wake of the Klay Thompson injury.

What Is The Best Warriors Roster Of All-Time?

The 2015-16 Warriors won an NBA record 73 games but fell short of winning the championship to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The team was represented three times over at the All-Star Game with Curry, Thompson, and Green, and were one game away from capping off the best season ever with a title.

That being said, they didn't win. The following year was the first of back-to-back championships with Kevin Durant, and having KD on a roster dramatically improves it.

The 2016-17 Warriors had Durant, Curry, Thompson, Green, and Andre Iguodala (and Shaun Livingston, Zaza Pachulia, and JaVale McGee); they won 67 regular-season games and beat James and the Cavs in five games. They are the best Warriors team of all time.

What Is The Warriors' Salary Cap?

Considering how Golden State's guaranteed salaries alone already amass to a whopping $142 million, this franchise is fully expected to operate as an above-the-cap team for the 2020-21 season. As a matter of fact, the Warriors are likely going to have the most expensive tax bill for the coming campaign.

The Warriors also have non-guaranteed salaries estimated to be above $5 million in total, and we also need to factor in the rookie-scale deal of second overall pick James Wiseman, which is estimated at around $8 of $9 million.

The good news for the Warriors is that they have an ownership group that is more than willing to shoulder the luxury tax. They've done this in the past, and 2020-21 should be no exception.
