First of all if you haven’t heard — the Golden State Warriors are the reigning NBA champions. And as with every champion, they should want to stay on top.

One of the main purposes of Summer League is to showcase young talent in hopes of seeing how well a prospect fits in a particular system. The Warriors have a great history of picking up players out of Summer League, a list that includes Justin Holiday, James Michael McAdoo and Kent Bazemore.

While the Warriors haven’t made much of splash in the offseason, they have made some notable moves:

The team already has key players like Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston and Andrew Bogut locked up for at least the next couple seasons, and guys like Harrison Barnes and Festus Ezeli are expected to talk extensions in the near future, so the Warriors don’t necessarily having any glaring “needs” to shore up.

Nevertheless, Executive of the Year Bob Myers can always be expected to be looking to add young — and affordable — talent that the team could possibly develop long term.

Edit (12:30 PM/PT, July 7): David Lee has been traded to the Boston Celtics for Gerald Wallace. Trade provides tax relief for the Warriors.
