For the vet minimum, solid

Curry/Poole
Klay/Lee/Moody
Wiggins/OPJ/Kuminga
Green/Bjelica/JTA
Looney/Wiseman

Next: RoLo????

Nice "stretch-big" who should thrive playing alongside Green.

Good signing by the Warriors.

Last year he struggled but the two years prior to that were his peak. If he can get back to that, he's going to be a really nice addition. If he can only play limited minutes at the level of last year – well, it's still only a minimum deal and he has to be respected as a shooter. Happy with the signing.

i get the feeling they're leaning more towards Mills. While I'm not the biggest Mills fan, I'm not sure I disagree. I'm not sure I disagree with RoLo either. Still need some playmaking and some rebounding so both could be helpful.

Reminds me of the Casspi signing. Hopefully, Bjelica works out better.

I like it. Here's our shooting big. Hopefully he doesn't get gun shy about launching 3s
Most 4th Quarter Points in Final since 1991
1995 Shaquille O'Neal 11.5
2000 Shaquille O'Neal 11.5 (61.1% TS)

Love the pickup. Can he play at center?

I like the idea of him as a stretch big, but he will struggle defensively, and lacks athleticism. Not sure he could fill in at center, other than in an extreme emergency, so I'm a little concerned about roster spots at this point......
If I don't have anything funny to say, can I still have a signature?

Between Kuminga, Moody, Porter and Bjelica, I absolutely love that we stocked up on wings.

That was by far our weakest point last season.

Reminds me of the Jerebko signing, for me. Great value for the minimum.

Edit: looked it up and Bjelica is already 33?!

Damn, I thought he was 27 or 28 at worst! hahaha

Now my expectations are not the same.

I'd expect him to play mostly Center for us, actually. Not sure he really works at the 4 for us.

Bjelica should not be treated as a wing, and we might be better off playing Kuminga like an undersized big at this point too

Bazemore gone and Oubre likely leaving I think we'd actually be getting weaker on the wing if not for Klay recovery

Definitely, Clyde!

Weird, sometimes I don't get notifications that my posts were quoted or this +1 thing... does it happen to anyone else as well?

Oublander is addition by subtraction.

I don't know about that, man.

I believe Bjelica is a combo forward, right? He plays the 4 mainly, and the 3 in certain matchups.

I think if you put him at the 5 it won't work. Maybe in some matchups, but I don't know about that.

Not sure what to say, it depends what version of him the team gets. Like Otto but with the latter it's about fitness, with Bjelica it's about what quality level of him the Warriors can get.

Gotta wait it out and see in the first 2 months of the season to judge.

Bjeli has a career 3pt% of 39% and Porter is at 40% career.
Smart move to bring in shooters off the bench, one of our biggest weaknesses last year.

He doesn't play the 3. He plays the 4 and 5 – and I expect him to work best as a 5 off the bench with the current roster.
