Since Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson were injured and reimbursed for next season
After that, the Warriors’ strength next season will be greatly affected. Many fans believe that their strength in the West is no longer enough to compete with the Lakers and Rockets.
Therefore, the Warriors’ management has also begun to strengthen during the offseason this summer. Although it is a little bit, it can also have the effect of gathering sand into a tower.
The Warriors management seems to have begun to learn the Rockets’ way of picking up leaks. For example, the Warriors have signed the undrafted Kevin McLean and Kai Bowman in the draft for the first time.
Fans are also talking about this, isn’t this the alternative "Kevin" and "Clay"?
Yong is completely making up for the lack of strength that Durant and Thompson will be reimbursed for next season!
Of course, jokes are jokes, the strength of these two rookies is worthy of recognition.
After Kevin McLean and the Warriors reach a signing agreement, they will be eligible to participate in this year’s summer league. At that time, we will also be able to see the true strength of this "Durant and Thompson fit" player!
The reason for McClain’s loss is likely to be his age. He is 22 years old this year and serves as a point guard. He was able to score 16.8 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.2 steals last season.
From the data point of view, it is remarkable. The only shortcoming is that he is too old and has no room for cultivation.
However, it is still possible to play the role of emergency pioneer in the Warriors next season.
In addition, we want to focus on another undrafted pick, Kai Bowman. This is a very powerful rookie, and everyone is surprised by the fact that he was undrafted.
Before the start of the draft, his predicted ranking was the top ten picks in the second round, but he was unexpectedly defeated.
Kay Bowman is a point guard. He is the absolute main guard of Boston College. He averaged 39.4 minutes per game, scoring 19 points, 7.5 rebounds, 4 assists and 1.4 steals.
It can be said that as a point guard, he can grab 7.5 rebounds and send 4 assists per game with such a strong scoring ability. It cannot but be said that his strength is really good.
The Warriors also saw his strength and directly signed a one-year contract with Kai Bowman. We will also see this capable guard in the NBA next season.
If nothing else, he will replace Cook as Curry’s substitute next season. His scoring ability can make up for the Warriors’ offensive loopholes when Curry is not on the court.
The rivalry between Kay Bowman and Cook will also be a highlight for the Warriors next season.
As of now, the situation of the Warriors next season is not optimistic. The Lakers have acquired Anthony Davis and are still pursuing another striker star. Their strength may become the top three teams in the Western Conference next season;
They haven’t made any big moves yet, but they are also making some reinforcements. As long as Harden and Paul are on the team, their strength next season should not be underestimated.
Most importantly, the west has shown a trend of "multi-legged confrontation".
The Jazz has been greatly enhanced by Conley; the Blazers will also usher in the return of core center Nurkic next season; the Spurs, Nuggets and Thunder are also powerful forces that no team dare to ignore.
Therefore, this offseason is very important for the Warriors. If Curry cannot be brought a good helper, then the Warriors next season will be under a lot of pressure.
