Warriors free agency needs
The Warriors' needs: a backup point guard, a backup shooting guard, reliable scoring off the bench, a penetrator, a big man who can shoot the 3-pointer, a low-post scorer and a third-string center. But when you're on limited funds, you have to find players who knock out a few needs.
Since Festus Ezeli is expected to return and David Lee can serve as the third center, the Warriors' greatest need is on the perimeter. Jordan Crawford and Steve Blake won't return, leaving no backups for Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.
Guard Rodney Stuckey, a free agent after seven seasons with Detroit, makes a lot of sense for the Warriors because he can back up Curry or Thompson. Stuckey is 6-foot-5 and 205 pounds, and his game is attacking the paint off the dribble. His career percentage of free-throw attempts to field-goal attempts is .381, well above Curry's career-high of .252 last season.
