If they don't seem close to the upper tier playoffs teams, then the return of Klay and addition of a couple of rookies isn't likely to drastically improve the team.
If the Warriors are competitive even if they lose, then contention will be more believable.
It will come down to Klay's level, Wiseman's improvement, and the rookies contribution.
Would you consider the below team close to "stacked" because I think it or something like it is possible if not likely? I think it's in the ballpark if we assume health and that the young guys improve.
Curry, Poole, Jaden Springer
Klay, Alec Burks, Jalen Green
Wiggins, Lee, Maurice Harkless
Green, JTA, Paschall
Wiseman, Looney, Kelly Olynyk
