Besides Draymond Green, the Warriors have a few other players of their own who are free agents this summer. Rusty Simmons of The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Golden State extended a qualifying offer to Ognjen Kuzmic but bypassed Justin Holiday's offer.

The Warriors will have the chance to retain Kuzmic by matching any contract signs this offseason, however Holiday becomes an unrestricted free agent.

Holiday, a shooting guard out of Washington started four games, played in 59 games and averaged 4.3 points per game this past season. As Simmons pointed out, Holiday could still re-sign with Golden State but with the current guard logjam, it would make sense if both parties decided to mutually part.

Since Brandon Rush picked up his player option, there are already two shooting guards on the roster including incumbent starter Klay Thompson. Additionally, the Warriors have utilized lineups with Stephen Curry or Andre Iguodala at the two position.

Michael Frazer, playing on the Warriors' Summer League team seems to be an under-the-radar prospect that Golden State may look to bring to training camp. With already an array of guard depth and versatility, the Warriors could decide against retaining Holiday.
