4. Justin Holiday

Another former member of the Warriors, many have forgotten that Justin Holiday briefly played for the team and even won a championship with them in 2015. Holiday will enter free agency when the season has officially ended, and the Warriors should at least consider bringing him back.

As a member of the Indiana Pacers this past season, Holiday played in 65 games with the team, having averaged 8.4 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 1.3 points per game.

While his numbers were nowhere near out of this world, the guard scored very efficiently as he did most of his damage primarily behind the arc, having averaged 42.4 percent shooting from three-point territory.

Holiday’s three-point arsenal could be a valuable tool to add to this already lethal Golden State lineup, a system that he could thrive in if given a chance.

If the Warriors were to pursue him, they might be one of the 31-year-old’s best option because of the familiarity of guys like Steve Kerr, Stephen Curry, and Klay Thompson, among others, and their three-point dependent system.

On paper, Holiday seems like a great fit to come off the Golden State bench, and having played on a 1-year $4.7 million contract for the Pacers this season, could be very affordable for them in free agency.

For his incredible three-point shooting, familiarity, and ability to add a scoring threat off the bench, the team should go after Justin Holiday.
