NBA free agency 2019: 10 Warriors targets in team's salary range
Austin Rivers, PG
Rivers would check two boxes for Golden State: Defense and scoring. Last season -- when matched up against the Splash Brothers -- he held Klay Thompson and Steph Curry to a combined 15-of-40 from the field in the regular season.
Additionally, his 8.1 points per game could help the Warriors. According to a league source, Rivers would be open to joining the Warriors this summer for the mid-level exception.
Wayne Ellington, SF/SG
Ellington could've been had in February following the trade deadline. However, with Golden State in need of frontcourt help, the Warriors opted to sign Andrew Bogut. Now, with Golden State in need of shooting, Ellington could be an intriguing option as Thompson recovers from injuries.
Over his last 28 games with the Pistons this season, Ellington averaged 12.0 points, including 37 percent from 3-point range. If Ellington can be had for the mid-level exception, it would be a good get for Golden State.
Seth Curry, SG/PG
Steph Curry's younger brother is very familiar with Golden State, having played stints on both the Warriors and their G League affiliate. Last season with Portland, he shot 45 percent from 3-point range and could be a good get for the veteran's minimum.
DeMarcus Cousins, C
Cousins' addition to the Warriors was the league's biggest signing last summer. Despite recovering from a torn Achilles, he averaged 16.3 points, 8.2 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 30 games.
A reunion is unlikely as Cousins will be seeking a lucrative deal out of Golden State's price range. However, if Cousins can't find a suitable option, another season in the Bay Area could be in the cards.
Justin Holiday, SG
The former Warrior has proven to be a capable bench scorer since he departed Golden State. Last season in Memphis, he averaged nine points per game, including a career-high 30-point performance against the Mavericks.
Tyson Chandler, C
Chandler and the Warriors were in talks last season after the center was released from the Suns, before ultimately signing with the Lakers. During his time in Los Angeles, the 36-year-old proved he's still a reliable defender at the rim.
With his ability to rebound and block shots, Chandler could be a good get for a cheap price.
Brook Lopez, C
Lopez is a capable scorer who can stretch the floor with his 3-point shooting. Last season, he made a career-high 187 3-pointers, helping the Bucks win a league-high 60 games.
However, despite his 7-foot frame, Lopez averaged just 4.9 rebounds. Still, he would be a solid addition to the Warriors offense.
DeAndre Jordan, C
While he enters free agency not viewed as the defender he was five years ago, Jordan would provide two attributes the Warriors desperately need next season: Size and rebounding. Last season, he averaged 11 points and 13 rebounds for the Mavericks and Knicks.
The Lakers, Nets and others reportedly will be in play for his services, but the 11-year veteran -- who was once represented by Warriors GM Bob Myers -- could be a fit in Golden State.
Jamal Crawford, SG
Crawford's name was tossed around last summer as a possible fit for Golden State. However, he ended up in Phoenix, where he averaged 7.9 points off the bench in his 19th season.
Crawford will likely command just the league minimum and the 39-year old could be an option should the market dry up.
Patrick Beverley, PG
Beverley has stated on the record he's looking for a big payday. However, if the Warriors can get the scrappy defender on a mid-level deal, it would be an absolute steal.
