With the NBA draft complete, the Warriors’ front office turns its attention to filling out the roster in free agency.
Even after selecting two talented rookies in Jonathan Kuminga and Moses Moody, the Warriors don’t expect either to make an immediate impact. During his post-draft press conference Thursday night, general manager Bob Myers discussed the importance of filling out the rotation through free agency.
“I still think we need to add some veterans,” Myers said. “We’re not done yet. That’s what we’re going to have to do in free agency.”
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of a pivotal free-agency period starting Monday.
The current roster
The Warriors currently have 15 players under contract, starting with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins, Draymond Green, James Wiseman, Kevon Looney, Jordan Poole, Eric Paschall and Juan Toscano-Anderson. There’s also Kuminga and Moody.
