With the Warriors picking up Barbosa for another season, it would seem like the Warriors have an incredibly crowded backcourt and are no longer in need of another shooting guard.

Still, the Warriors have let go of Holiday and opened up a roster spot, so it’s certainly possible that the Warriors take a look at one of the aforementioned names and try to develop that player long term.

  • The veterans on the squad are Craft and Lamb, both of whom played in the D-League last season. Craft was named the Defensive Player of the Year in the D-League, proving himself a great on-ball defender in addition to being a point guard capable of running the show. However, it’s unlikely he gets called up for the regular season with guys like Curry and Livingston already on the roster.

    As for Lamb, many may recognize him as the Milwaukee Bucks’ 42nd draft pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. He was traded and waived by the Orland Magic, later signing with the Dallas Mavericks for a short time before being waived once more. He’ll be looking to prove he’s able enough to be in the NBA.

    Going into the 2015 NBA Draft, one thing that the Warriors could have addressed was their need of bench shooting. Unfortunately, the best option they could have picked up (R.J. Hunter) went two spots earlier to the Boston Celtics, forcing the Warriors to take Looney with the 30th pick.

    If the Warriors are still in the market for a shooter, undrafted rookie Michael Frazier could possibly be worth a look. While a bit undersized as a shooting guard, Frazier is an incredibly competitive defender that’s primarily known for his spot-up shooting.

    To be honest, it was quite the surprise when Frazier was left undrafted. Though Barbosa proved himself a capable long-range shooter this past season, it definitely wouldn’t hurt for the Warriors to pick up Frazier and groom him long term. His ability to spread the floor could also turn out being extremely useful come the regular season.
