Key Offseason Decisions

  • Do the Warriors keep their non-guaranteed players or waive them to lessen their tax bill? Golden State is the only NBA without a single pending free agent. That leaves their decisions to their non-guaranteed players.

Projected Team Salary

$157,615,008

Without a single pending free agent, the Warriors have to decide if they are going to keep their non-guaranteed players. All have proven to have value. Ky Bowman, Mychal Mulder and Juan Toscano-Anderson all played well at points this season. Marquese Chriss and Damion Lee both have significant guaranteed money. Expect all to be back and for Golden State to commit to a healthy tax bill following the season. (@KeithSmithNBA)
