1. Alec Burks

Before having joined the Warriors last offseason, Alec Burks seemingly could not find a suitable home as he had bounced around three different teams in the 2018-19 season alone.

However, he rejuvenated his career in Golden State, having averaged career-highs across the board with 16.1 points per game, 4.7 rebounds per game, and 3.1 assists per game.

The 28-year-old was traded midway through the season in the Glenn Robinson III deal to the Philadelphia 76ers, and much like how it would make sense to bring Robinson back, the same could go for Burks.

During his 48 game tenure with the Warriors, Burks primarily served as the team’s sixth man, something the team desperately needs next season.

With their guards rather inexperienced, bringing in a player who is familiar with the team and previously thrived in their system is a no-brainer.

Having the luxury of Burks off the bench behind Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson would give the Warriors a significant boost offensively.

Although their All-Star backcourt was not there playing together this season, a reunion with the team could make sense for him as well, considering he had a breakout year for them.

The Warriors should undoubtedly make another run at Alec Burks this offseason, and could potentially lock up their sixth man in doing so.

For his familiarity, lethal scoring, and potential to be the team’s sixth man, the Warriors should pursue a reunion with Burks this offseason.
