The Golden State Warriors have a decision to make. Not a big, franchise-changing decision, but there’s still a decision to be made. The Warriors will soon have to address the situation involving who their third point guard will be this upcoming season.
Stephen Curry is the Warriors’ best player and leader on the court, so there aren’t many minutes to back him up in the first place. Shaun Livingston, the newly acquired veteran point guard, will obviously play the majority of the minutes as the backup point guard, and given his size and versatility, he can play some minutes as the backup shooting guard as well.
Depth was one of the Warriors’ biggest weaknesses last season, and this issue still has to be addressed this offseason. Even with the additions of Livingston and Brandon Rush, the Warriors could still use a little more backcourt depth.
Let’s take a look at each candidate and assess their chances at earning that third point guard spot.
