GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS Key additions: Harrison Barnes (draft), Jarrett Jack (trade), Brandon Rush (re-sign), Carl Landry (FA), Festus Ezeli (draft), Draymond Green (draft) Key subtractions: Dorell Wright, Nate Robinson The Warriors badly want to start winning and took another step in that direction with a pretty strong draft. Barnes may have been overrated coming out of high school, but he was a value at No. 7 and should be able to step right in and grab the starting small forward spot. I'm also a big fan of Green as a versatile role player on a good team. He has a high basketball IQ, is skilled and can come in and contribute right away. Landry gives the Warriors another very solid option at power forward. Jack, whom they acquired via trade, gives Golden State some support at the point guard position should Stephen Curry struggle with injuries again, and Rush provides a solid defender and shooter off the bench at a very reasonable price. If everyone stays healthy and Andrew Bogut can get back to All-Star form, the Warriors could be a sleeper team in the West. Few teams in the NBA have such lethal shooters surrounding a solid low-post presence. GRADE: B+
