Six underrated free agents capped-out Warriors could sign
Andre Roberson, SG
Roberson only flies under the radar because injuries have derailed his career. He hasn't played in an NBA game in over two years, and there is no specific timetable for his return. The 28-year-old was an elite defender in his prime, impacting the game in numerous ways aside from his poor shooting.
If -- and this is a big if -- Roberson can get healthy, then the Warriors would definitely be interested in adding him as a defensive stopper against the best scorers in the league. Spacing would be tough to find on offense with him and Draymond Green sharing the court, but Roberson can be a highly effective piece in a limited role in the right rotation.
Fun fact: The Warriors bought the pick that became Roberson in 2013, but ultimately traded the selection to the Oklahoma City Thunder on draft night.
Kyle Korver, SG
Korver is, unlike many on this list, a known commodity, and most observers would assume a 39-year-old on the tail end of his career is not the right option for the Dubs. He can't be counted on defensively, and there's not much he brings to the court other than his 3-point stroke.
And yet, that 3-point stroke is good enough to take a hard look. Korver is one of the best 3-point shooters in NBA history and has played nearly 17 minutes a game for the league-best Milwaukee Bucks this season. If the Warriors are able to sign Korver to the veteran's minimum and play him 10 to 15 minutes per night, just imagine the spacing they could create on the court alongside Steph Curry and Klay Thompson.
Josh Jackson, SG/SF
The No. 4 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft has already been labeled a bust around the league. But Jackson, 23, still has a world of talent, and there are reasons to believe the Warriors could reinvigorate his career the same way they did with Marquese Chriss. Jackson, like Chriss, was drafted by the Phoenix Suns, and they're not exactly highly regarded for prospect development.
If Jackson is willing to accept a minimum deal with a team for the chance to re-establish his reputation and career, then the Warriors can provide the perfect winning environment to do so. In fact, the Warriors already are on the path to reinventing another highly-touted, long and athletic wing in Andrew Wiggins. Why not add one more?
Stanley Johnson, SF/PF
Speaking of reclamation projects, Johnson could use a lot of help. Drafted No. 8 overall in the 2015 draft, the 6-foot-6 forward is a career 37-percent shooter from the field and a 29-percent shooter from 3. Many thought he had the chance to be an impressive defender with his size and tough attitude, but that has faded over the years as well.
At this point, it's entirely possible that Johnson won't sign a guaranteed deal this offseason. If the Warriors wanted to take a chance on him by bringing him in for a closer look in training camp, there wouldn't be much risk. He is only 24 years old and has all the tools to be successful, but unlocking them might be too tough for a Warriors team trying to contend.
Juan Hernangomez, PF & Willy Hernangomez, C
The Hernangomez brothers have been quietly productive in their NBA careers thus far, and both could bring some needed depth to the Warriors' frontcourt.
Willy was drafted in the second round out of Spain in 2015, while Juan was No. 15 pick a year later. Juan, the younger brother, is 6-foot-9 and Willy is 6-foot-11, but both are scrappy players who can step out behind the 3-point line and be pretty effective.
The Charlotte Hornets regularly have used Willy in the last few seasons, and he has put up decent, if unspectacular, stats. Juan, meanwhile, really impressed after the Denver Nuggets traded him to the Minnesota Timberwolves. In 14 games after the trade, the younger Hernangomez averaged 13 points per game and shot 42 percent from 3-point range.
