As the Warriors await word on Kevin Durant’s intentions, they seek to fill out their bench. Two players have recently come up as possible additions to the team that won 73 games last season but fell just short of a second consecutive championship.
The first of the players in Andrew Nicholson.
Sources: Another player the Warriors expressed interest in as they look to bolster their bench is Andrew Nicholson (who's unrestricted).— Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) July 1, 2016
Nicholson, originally from Canada, is 26 and has played his whole career for the Orlando Magic after being drafted 19th overall in 2012. He’s had a relatively quiet career thus far, posting averages of 6.5 points and 3.2 rebounds in 15.1 minutes per game.
However, his per/36 numbers look a little more respectable.
The second player is Dewayne Dedmon, who actually played for the Warriors (and the Santa Cruz Warriors) on and off during 2013. Most recently of the Orlando Magic, Dedmon stands 7’0". The big man averaged 4.4 points and 3.9 rebounds in 12.2 minutes per game for the Magic last season.
Could we see either or both of these players wearing Warriors jerseys next season? Who will we see on the Warriors’ roster on opening night? For a team coming off a historically great season, there sure are a lot of questions to answer.
