The Golden State Warriors are planning a path forward.
Yes, the team just won the NBA Finals and are the reigning champions of the league but that doesn’t mean they aren’t trying to get better.
After all, the only thing better than a Finals victory is another Finals victory.
To that end, the team is working out a few veteran free agents to see if any of them will fit on the roster.
The Warriors are bringing in several veteran free agents for workouts this week, including:
◻️ Ben McLemore
◻️ Elfrid Payton
◻️ Rondae Hollis-Jefferson
◻️ Kenneth Faried

It’s not clear which of these guys, if any, will be playing in the Bay but it’s obvious that the Warriors are trying to beef up their lineup even more.
Will the 2022-23 season belong to the Warriors just like the 2021-22 season did?
Recruiting veteran NBA players is always a smart idea.
Not only do they bring a lot of experience and know-how about the game, but they also do so for cheap.
A team doesn’t have to spend as much on a veteran’s contract and that helps them significantly, especially if they are cash-strapped like the Warriors.
Right now, Golden State is a mix of newcomers and proven pros.
That’s a healthy combination of both young and old that has led to NBA supremacy.
The Warriors don’t have a whole lot of cash to throw around right now so their pursuit of veteran players is very smart and financially advantageous.
Let’s see if it results in more postseason greatness.
