I’ve been a Rivers fan since I’ve seen his HS mixtapes. He’s grown into a good role player - definitely think he can follow Lou Williams career path in ultimate scorer and 6th man off the bench. He could definitely help our guard depth and as a combo guard who can handle & score is covers two needs.

He's been so inconsistent, and has for long runs been downright horrible. And his decision making being a concern is certainly not what the Warriors are looking for.

Anyone think Gallinari would be interested in the MLE? Bench scorer, chance to win a ring, and then find a big contract in 2021 off season. Is it realistic for him to find a big contract this off season? We would have to lure him into the idea of competing for a championship.

He would come in as the backup PG and scorer. His decision making isn’t as bad as any other backup guard. His handle is tight and he’s an offensive threat, capable shooter, & not a bad defender. 25mpg maximum. More if we’re resting Curry.

By that logic, the Lakers and Clippers could top us with their full MLEs. And he'd be coming here to play the 3 since Dray and Paschall will get most of the minutes at the 4, but he doesn't defend quick wings well enough to stick there.

True. I do think that will be in play this off season with Championship contenders loading up with guys on a 1 year MLE deal. Unless some team decides to splurge this off season.

I’m just looking at who we could steal at the MLE

Draft Okoro and then sign Marc Gasol.
Gasol starts and puts in about 25 mins a game. Then the small ball group of Curry, Klay, Wiggins, Okoro, Draymond dominate for stretches while throwing in minutes here and there for Paschall and Chriss (so as to not wear out Draymond). Last half of the year and playoffs we unlock our secret weapon - Smailagic "Johnson" on the league.
They quiver with fear and dread, a new Smiley poster in each opponents head.

Connor Letourneau seems to think Gasol might be willing to sign with the Warriors for less than he could get elsewhere. Of course, that may be more wishful thinking than anything else. Just because David West took a pay cut doesn't mean Gasol would.

Given the volatility of the cap situation next year, I think there will be a few players that will have to take accept smaller contracts than they would otherwise. GRIII I'd imagine will be available again for the minimum. I'd be thrilled to have him back at that price. One that occurred to me recently is Pat Connaughton. I think it's likely he stays in Milwaukee, but he'd be a great fit here. He's a bit of a streaky shooter, but he's helped keep the Bucks bench afloat the last few years and has nights where he gets really hot. He's insanely athletic and he's an excellent rebounder at the guard position. Per 36 he's averaged 7 and 8 boards a game the last two years. Wiggins and Paschall are both mediocre, if not poor rebounders at their position. Klay doesn't rebound (in large part because he leaks out in transition to space the floor), Dray and Chriss are both average defenders at their position.

Assuming we pick up a tanky center at MLE like Baynes or Gasol or TPE a Dedmon type, that'll help shore up the rebounding some. But Kerr has talked about playing Dray more at the 5 next year, in which case there will be a clear need for rebounding on the wings and at the guard position. Connaughton can hit the boards, and he'd be a valuable sparkplug off the bench.

Sterling Brown is also an RFA though he doesn't seem as athletic as Conaughton.

Bucks may let both go, as DiVicenzo is going to get much more of the minutes. They also have Matthews and Korea.

I like Brown a lot too. He’s been mostly pushed out of the rotation over there, but in the first year with Bud I thought he showed a lot of promise. He’s not super explosive, but he’s mobile enough in a sturdy body, hits open threes at a decent rate, defends hard, hits the boards and showed some ability to create off the dribble. Brown isn’t as tall as he looks (he’s only 6’5) but he’s got the body type to moonlight at the 3 and bruise with 4’s on switches. I do think he’ll be easier to attain in free agency than Connaughton. Both of them are some of my preferred FA pickups that haven’t been discussed much around these parts. The others like Baynes, Gasol, Ibaka, Crowder, Bazemore, GRIII, have been discussed plenty.

Word on the street is that Warriors are looking at signing Marc Gasol with the MLE. I think he would be a great fit next to Draymond especially if the Warriors draft Wiseman and he can mentor him and team him to stretch the floor.

Pretty sure they would like to sign him. It's a question of whether he'll take $5M or less. He'll get better offers.

Word on the street is that Joe Lacob would give his son Kirk’s left nut to sign Gasol or Ibaka to the MLE. It would be a minor miracle to get that done.

Why wouldn't he just stay in Toronto if he couldn't get better than an MLE?

Unless he doesn't like the cold or something about Toronto.

Maybe if he was close to some of the Warriors players?
