The Golden State Warriors are considering making another run in the playoffs while also planning for the summer. Owner Joe Lacob is concerned that Bob Myers’ departure from Golden State might interfere with their future plans since Myers’ contract has expired.
The Golden State Warriors are aware that the results of this season will have an influence on their future plans. As a result, this offseason they will be concentrating on three main responsibilities.
- protecting Draymond Green
Draymond Green’s future with the team is a priority for the Warriors. The 33-year-old has a $27.6 million option for the next season that he may choose to accept or decline, making him an unrestricted free agent. He will probably choose to go, even if it means accepting a contract with a lower annual salary, in order to acquire a longer-term one. The team wants to sign Green to a three-year, $60 million deal, which would lower their luxury tax cost and also guarantee him a larger salary. Few clubs with salary cap flexibility could give Green more money than the Warriors, despite the fact that he has been playing well.
- Reorganize the lineup
The Warriors will be searching for new players to help them stay title contenders as they try to overhaul their squad in the summer. They’ll be on the lookout for guys who can provide them more versatility on the floor as well as support them off the bench. The salary ceiling and luxury tax bill make it unclear, however, how much cash the club will be able to spend.
- Boost the growth of players
This summer, the Warriors will put more emphasis on enhancing player development. They need new talent to step up as the league’s current generation of players starts to become older. This entails devising strategies for integrating individuals like James Wiseman and Nico Mannion as well as making sure that their younger players acquire the instruction and experience they need to benefit the squad in the long run.
