The Warriors are dangerously close to the Luxury Tax if it remains at $70.3M. If Rush is signed for the Qualifying Offer, then they will only have $4.9M to spend before hitting the threshold. A backup PG is one of the top priorities and so is bringing back the versatile, defensive specialist, Dominic McGuire.
I have a feeling Lacob will not limit his team to the $4.9M allowance and will do what it takes to bring in the right talent. If Rush returns, which is almost a given, there are only 2 roster spots left. McGuire will probably be one of them and the last roster spot could belong to the backup PG or a veteran big man. However, if the Warriors could swing a trade sending out Wright and getting back future picks, that would steer them clear of the luxury tax and allow them more flexibility to shape the roster.
