The Golden State Warriors are the running champions and one of the contenders to win the league in the NBA. Their squad is filled with all the talented players who hold the capabilities to win it twice in a row. The oast also favors them as they have played in 4 finals in the last six years. Although they had a bad start to the season, they are slowly climbing up. Even after bad displays on the court, they sit in the top 10 to qualify for the playoff spot in the league.
The Warriors are in safe hands with the likes of Steph Curry, Jordan Poole, Klay Thompson, and Jordan Poole. However, the reports circulating in the market tell a different story as they look for a buyout option for Patrick Beverley. According to ESPN reporter Adrian Wojnarowski, Warriors will dip their toes in the buyout market to secure their point guard rotation. It is surprising for a team like the Warriors, which already have world-class point guards, to look for Beverley. His impact on the regular with the Lakers is debatable, but there might be something more the Dubs are digging.
The Golden State Warriors Need A Point Guard
In the dying trade moments, the Dubs made a move to reunite with the point guard Gary Payton II. They wanted to secure their point guard rotations to fill it with reliable players. However, a medical assessment of Payton suggests that he could miss the action for the next three months. But even after such bad news, the Warriors still had a pretty packed backline, including the future hall of fame Steph Curry. Apart from Curry, the three other stars are Klay Thompson, Jordan Poole, and offseason signing Donte DiVincenzo.
The Warriors are eyeing Patrick Beverley’s buyout options to secure the point guard rotation for their postseason plays. The 34-year-old landed in Orlando Magic at the last of the trade deadline. However, he was never going to stay in the younger Magic team as they waived him off. As of now, Beverley is a free agent who the Dubs could acquire. In his 45 games with the Lakers, Pat averaged 6.4 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 2.6 assists per game. Even though his impact in the regular games is questionable, he has been a crucial playoff member throughout his career. And the Warriors would want to capitalize on the opportunity.
There is still a lot of speculation in the league about whether Pat Bev could provide the same value. Whatever the case, the Warrior will be lurking in the market to fill the team with contenders who could win the league. They are already one of the favorites to lift the trophies and wear the ring for the second time in a row.
