As the Warriors wade into the final 10 days of the regular season, the front office is scanning its big board of available players, hoping to find someone capable of lending a hand to a team in need.
Like, for example, ex-Warriors big man Jordan Bell.
Why consider Bell, whose immaturity prompted the Warriors to let him walk in 2019? Three reasons. One, he’s a forward-center that spent two seasons playing with Stephen Curry and with Draymond Green and knows the system; Two, Bell is available after a 10-day contract with the Wizards expired last week; and three, he’d be easy on the bloated payroll.
But the window shopping goes deeper than a single player. The Warriors have two open roster spots, and Bell is among those on the list of possible additions. Coach Steve Kerr is down to an eight-man rotation but on Thursday acknowledged a desire for more.
“We’re looking into that right now, as we speak,” Kerr said prior to tipoff against the Oklahoma City Thunder at Chase Center. “We’re hoping that Eric (Paschall) is back soon. That gives us size and athleticism when he returns.
“All we’re doing right now is trying to give ourselves the best chance to win. If that means playing eight, then we play eight. But it’s not something that we want to do for a long period of time. Our guys could use a little help out there.”
At least one player is expected…
