The Golden State Warriors have been busy this offseason, bringing in a number of NBA veterans for workouts. These workouts are generating a lot of interest around the league, as the Warriors look to strengthen their roster for next season.
Recent participants include former team players such as Kent Bazemore, Juan Toscano-Anderson, and Dewayne Dedmon, as well as some prominent free agents such as Will Barton, Jaylen Nowell, Stanley Johnson, and Derrick Favors, league sources tell HoopsHype.
One of the biggest names on this list is Kent Bazemore, who had an impressive performance from three-point range during the 2020-21 season, shooting a career-best 40.8 percent. His ability to score from the outside could be a valuable asset for the Warriors next season.
On the other hand, Juan Toscano-Anderson, who was part of the team during its historic championship in 2022, remains an important piece in the Warriors’ future. His versatility on both sides of the court makes him a valuable player for the Golden State team.
Dewayne Dedmon, who made his NBA debut with the Warriors in the 2013-14 season, returns to train with the team. Although his time in Golden State was brief, his experience in the league could provide valuable knowledge to the group of younger players.
Will Barton, another veteran with 11 years of NBA experience, has also been working with the Warriors. Barton had a solid season with the Denver Nuggets in 2021-22, averaging 14.7 points per game in 71 games. His ability to score and his experience in crucial moments could be a valuable asset for the Warriors if he eventually joins the team.
Jaylen Nowell, who averaged 10.8 points per game last season with the Minnesota Timberwolves, is also among the players who have worked out with the Warriors. Rumors of a possible transfer are circulating around Nowell, which makes his presence at these training sessions even more intriguing.
Stanley Johnson, shooting an impressive 53.3 percent from the field and 45 percent from 3-point range with the San Antonio Spurs last season, has also been in the Warriors’ sights. His ability to score efficiently from the outside field could be a valuable addition to the team.
Derrick Favors, a 12-year NBA veteran, has been working with both the Warriors and the Portland Trail Blazers. Favors has proven to be a solid player on both ends of the floor throughout his career, averaging 10.6 points and 7.1 rebounds in 790 games.
