On July 10, Beijing time, as the free market gradually returned to calm, the Warriors had another important operation here. Let’s talk about the Warriors’ signings first. It is reported that the Warriors have officially signed this year’s No. 41 rookie Pascal. His contract is 4.2 million for three years, and it is a fully guaranteed contract. It shows how much the Warriors value this potential Titan. It is worth mentioning that Pascal played an excellent season in college, averaging 16+6 data per game, and has excellent physical fitness. The Warriors have always been good at finding good players at low positions, such as Dreaming Green, and this time Pascal officially became a member of the Warriors. After Adu left and Clay was seriously injured and absent, next season is Pascal's opportunity.
In addition to the new signings, the Warriors also officially waived the Triple Crown hero Livingston. As a result, the Warriors' championship hero Iguodala, Livingston, Durant and other important players all left the team. Although Livingston's statistics are average, he averaged 6.3 points per game during the Warriors' time, but his contribution to the team is huge. Since joining the Warriors in 2014, Livingston has gradually become an important member of the team's bench. He helped the Warriors win the NBA championship in 15, 17 and 18 years. With Livingston, a tall point guard, Cole can make a lot of tactical adjustments, such as the death five small lineup. In many cases, Cole will send a brother or Livingston to partner with the Big Four.
After the Warriors signed and waived, the roster for next season is basically released. The Warriors’ starting lineup has a high probability of being composed of Curry, Tom God, Green, Russell, Rooney, etc. Before Tom God’s return, Evans and McKinney will have the opportunity to start, and important substitute players include Cowley. Stan, Burks, Evans, McKinney, Glenn Robinson III, Damien Lee, etc. It can be seen that the Warriors’ starting lineup is not weak, and the four All-Stars are enough to compete with other teams, but the biggest flaw is the bench. This has been the Warriors’ biggest disadvantage in recent years. James, Robinson III and other powerful players, but without a brother and Livingston and other veterans, who will become the bench leader? There is no suitable candidate yet.
Let’s talk about the overall situation of the league. After each team’s operations this summer, the NBA game next season will be more intense. In the Wild West, the Warriors are no longer a big favorite. Needless to say, the Los Angeles duo are all competing teams. It is estimated that the Los Angeles Derby Finals will be wonderful. The second-tier teams such as the Jazz and Nuggets have become stronger through signings, especially the Jazz. It will become a spoiler for the new season, and there are too many players who can defend. The Rockets chose to stay on the pawn this summer, but there is a light bulb combination, which is not much worse. On the whole, among the strong Western teams, only the Warriors have fallen too fast, and Adu left the team. It hurts the Warriors' vitality, and even worse, and Tang Shen’s injury, next season may be the toughest season for the Warriors in recent years.
