NBA Offseason Team Needs:

1. Break the Bank: With Stephen Curry an unrestricted free agent and Kevin Durant holding a player option, the Warriors are going to have to break the bank to sign both guys to new deals. It is worth every penny, but those signings will leave the franchise with practically zero cap flexibility for the foreseeable future. Again, it is worth every penny when you have a super-core of Curry, Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green for the next few years.

2. Round Out the Roster: Just like Golden State did last summer when they signed David West, JaVale McGee and Zaza Pachulia, the team must find veterans willing to take minimum contracts to play for a title contender. What is different about this offseason is that key reserves like Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston are also free agents, leaving more potential holes to be filled.
