With all the roster moves the Warriors made this offseason, who will be on the final roster for the Golden State Warriors?
This 2020 offseason has been an emotional one for the Golden State Warriors to say the least. The Warriors had NBA title aspirations for this upcoming season it all took a turn for the worse when it was reported that Klay Thompson suffered an Achille’s tendon tear.
This effectively ruled Thompson out for the 2020-21 season, while simultaneously reducing the Warriors’ chances at a title.
In an effort to remain competitive, the Warriors signed and drafted players who could help them keep afloat in the loaded Western Conference.
Who is new to the Warriors roster?
Klay’s torn right Achilles was reported on just hours before the NBA draft commenced. Losing their starting two guard, however, did not influence the Warriors’ decision on who to draft.
James Wiseman was picked 2nd overall by Golden State, along with Nico Mannion in the 2nd round. James Wiseman will fill out the center spot quite well and will be a lob threat in half court sets.
Kelly Oubre Jr. was acquired from the OKC Thunder this past week. He averaged nearly 19 points this past season for the Phoenix Suns. A longtime friend of Steph Curry’s, Kent Bazemore also signed with the Warriors a couple days ago.
Brad Wanamaker also signed a $2.3 million deal with the Warriors this offseason, to be a back up point guard behind Curry.
Who will be on the Warriors’ roster, come training camp?
The list of players on the Warriors roster is as follows:
Guards – Steph Curry, Brad Wanamaker, Jordan Poole, Klay Thompson, Damion Lee;
Forwards – Draymond Green, Andrew Wiggins, Kelly Oubre Jr, Eric Paschall, Kent Bazemore, Andrew Wiggins, Alen Smailagic;
Centers – Kevon Looney, James Wiseman, Marquese Chriss;
Nico Mannion is on a two-way contract, while the contracts of Chriss and Damion Lee are only partially guaranteed.
