The Golden State Warriors will look to contend for an NBA title next season, and a few free agency steals could potentially bolster their chances of doing so.

Derailed by a vast amount of injuries, the Golden State Warriors took a step back this season but prepared themselves for a bright future ahead.

With their league-worst 15-50 record, the team landed a genuine opportunity to secure the No. 1 overall draft selection in this year’s lottery, likely to choose a big man.

The team also traded for former Rookie of the Year Andrew Wiggins to fill their vacant small forward position, who could potentially turn out to be a fantastic addition.

Although Wiggins played only 12 games with the team due to the coronavirus pandemic, he looked promising as he averaged 19.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 3.6 assists per game.

With Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson also set to be fully healthy whenever next season begins, the team already looks like serious title contenders in the loaded Western Conference.

Still, if there is one area of their team that needs improvement, it is their bench. Comprised of mostly young and inexperienced players this past season, the team may need some upgrades to ensure they are all-in on a title run.

Although there are not many star-studded options set to become free agents, there are plenty of low-cost options that the team could find desirable. If the team is looking to make a significant splash with their fully-loaded roster next season, a busy offseason is very likely to happen.

With a preliminary need for guard help off the bench along with scoring capabilities, there are many targets soon to be on the market that the Warriors could look to sign to team-friendly deals.

With that, here are 5 low-cost options for the Warriors to considering signing this offseason.
