There is plenty of optimism as the Golden State Warriors will enter this summer looking to retool their roster through the draft and trades.

As far as competing with the rest of the NBA goes, the 2019-20 season is over for the Golden State Warriors. The wins to attain this year lie in the development of their young players and return to health of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

Assuming both guards make full recoveries from injury, this is the question that will ring through the Bay Area until opening night of next year: Is it feasible to try to rebuild the pre-Kevin Durant Golden State Warriors or smarter to put the best efforts and resources toward acquiring another star in his stead?

With the additional loss of two complementary staples of their run in Shaun Livingston and Andre Iguodala, arguments for how far away they may or may not have been to their 2015-16 squad without Durant are no longer relevant.

We are now observing one of the worst teams in the NBA, one which has looked bad enough at times to wonder whether, even under the best physical circumstances, this coaching staff can really flip a switch from bottom-feeder back to contender?

The great thing for general manager Bob Myers and company is that they will be teeming with assets come summer and are as well positioned as any bad team without cap space to make major transactions. Let’s touch on their potential moves with an inevitably high draft pick.
