Golden State Warriors is still one of the strongest teams in NBA despite losing out half of their main players. Kevin Durant, DeMarcus Cousins, DeAndre Jordan, Andre Iguodala, etc. have left the Warriors after the free agency deals. The future of Warriors depends on Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green.
It is not sure whether D’Angelo Russell will be traded or not, despite his views of staying with the Warriors. NBA trade market will be once again open up in next January and the Warriors could sign some low-cost players. Here are the possible the Warriors can make with Marcus Morris, CJ Miles, Joe Harris, Darius Miller and Robert Covington.
New York Knicks signed Marcus Morris and two other players in the free agency for short-term deals. Bobby Portis and Julius Randle are all brought in until the Knicks can land better players in the next free agency. Morris had been averaging double figures in the last five seasons. He also had a 37.5 percent three-point shooting rate with 1.9 three per game. Warriors could sign Morris for around $15 million, and he would be a great addition to their offense.
Work to hard for anybody to tell me what I can’t do.

C.J. Miles is another such name who had a one year contract with the Washington Wizards for $8.7 million. As soon as John Wall will return, the Wizards will longer need Miles. He is also great at offense with 41.3 percent shooting from the deep and 2.2 threes per game. Warriors could add Miles to their squad as he can complete their trio with Thompson and Curry.

Joe Harris will become a free agent in the next NBA season, and the Warriors could easily find a way to sign him. Brooklyn Nets would never have traded Harris, but they already got Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in their team. Harris has won the title for three-point shooting in NBA with 47.4 percentage and has an amazing aim from the far end of the court. Warriors could make a solid roster with Curry, Thompson, Russell, and Harris for the next season.
The fluxing of the USA Basketball roster continues: De’Aaron Fox and Joe Harris, both brought to Vegas as select-team members, will practice with the national team when camp opens Monday.

Darius Miller has spent his entire career with the team of New Orleans Pelicans, and it is time for a change now. He has a 38.2 career percentage in three-point range while playing for the Pelicans. Miller has a lot of experience as he has played alongside Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins. Golden State Warriors should target to sign Miller for a contract as the Pelicans won’t easily trade him.

Robert Covington is one of the hottest names in NBA right now as he plays for the Minnesota Timberwolves. He is 6 foot 9 inch tall and has a wingspan of 7 foot 2 inches. Covington has an average of shooting 37 percent from the deep and plays great as a small forward. Warriors can exchange Russell with Covington as they fit better in the opposite teams.
There are still Sixers fans who don’t think Robert Covington is good. That blows my mind.
