David Lee + Dorell Wright - Anthony Randolph - Kelenna Azubuike - Ronny Turiaf = Who else should we sign?

This Warriors have shaked the team up quite a bit this summer. Acquiring David Lee, Dorell Wright filling in the SF slot, and the losses of Anthony Randolph, Kelenna Azubuike, Ronny Turiaf and Anthony Morrow, the Warriors are definitely trying to build for the future. And I think they have done a GREAT job so far.

The team still needs to fill in a few roster spots though, whether it be signing players from the Summer League or looking for players still on the free agency market. 

Since the Warriors are over the salary cap, the most we can do this off season is pursue trade options (ex. David Lee) and sign players to the Mid Level Exception (ex. Dorell Wright).

Here's a quick explanation of what the MLE is: Once a year, teams are allowed to sign a player to a contract equal to the average NBA salary, even if the team is over the salary cap already, or if the signing would put them over the cap. This is known as the Mid-level exception (MLE). The MLE may be used on an individual free agent or split among multiple free agents, and is available to any team that exceeds the salary cap at the beginning of the offseason.

With most of the MLE gone, the Warriors are lucky to have $4 Million from the Trade Exception they received from the Anthony Morrow trade with the Nets.

I looked over the list of Free Agents left and sorted out the most REALISTIC players we can still sign.
