5. Marco Belinelli

As stated previously, the most questionable part of the Warriors’ roster is their guard depth behind Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Aside from Damion Lee, the rest of their guards are rather inexperienced, something the team should look to upgrade with a guy like Marco Belinelli.

Belinelli spent his first two seasons as a member of the Golden State Warriors, and a reunion would make much sense for both sides.

The seasoned veteran has been on ten different rosters throughout his NBA career, most recently with the San Antonio Spurs. In 52 games last season, Belinelli averaged 5.8 points, 1.7 rebounds, and 1.2 assists per game, partially caused by a minimized role.

Compared to the 2018-19 season, Belinelli’s minutes decreased by 8.0 per game as the team shifted their rotation in favor of Derrick White, Bryn Forbes, and Dejounte Murray primarily at the guard positions.

If the 2013-14 NBA Champion were to seek another opportunity that includes both good playing time and a chance to make a run at the title, Golden State would fit the mold perfectly.

The 34-year-old has accumulated an impressive 37.6 percent three-point average over his long career and could receive a prominent role off of the team’s bench for their scoring needs.

Belinelli made just under $6 million this season, and if the Warriors could make a move for him in free agency, they would be getting a player to help this team’s “win-now” aspirations.

For his stellar three-point shooting, desire to win, and veteran experience, the Warriors should look to sign Marco Belinelli this offseason.
