|Harrison Barnes and Festus Ezeli|
The Warriors filled a lot of needs with their draft selections, but one area they weren't able to shore up was their back court, which has prompted their interest in Roy. That along with the fact that Brandon Rush is entertaining offers elsewhere has got the Warriors looking desperately for help at the guard spots. Myers told us before the draft that he'd try and sign Roy if the Warriors didn't get a guard in the draft, and they didn't get one. Now with free agency hitting it's peak, the Warriors have to act on their targets quickly. Not only are they thin on 2 guards after Klay Thompson, but they also are in need of some point guard depth behind the fragile Steph Curry. I liked Roy when he was healthy in Portland, but I really don't know what he'd be able to offer them at this point. I'd rather see them spending resources on securing a good backup point guard for Curry like bringing back Jeremy Lin or even looking to a veteran like Raymond Felton. Those are two names I heard being linked to Golden State right after the season, however their limited cap space may prove getting a sought after point guard impossible.
Update: Apparently Brandon Roy was very close to signing with Golden State, but instead chose to sign on with the T-Wolves on a 2-year deal, spurning Golden State at the last second. Feels like the J.J. Hickson situation all over again in a way, but I'm not too upset to see Roy sign elsewhere. This should make bringing back Rush a top priority!
