Now that the Warriors have gotten a quality backup PG in Jarrett Jack via trade, targets and priorities change. Brandon Rush is still expected to return and hopefully, they can get him at a salary that starts at around $4M. I would love to bring back Dominic McGuire with the Bi-Annual Exception at $2M. That would leave the Warriors with a little over $1M to sign one more player if they want to steer clear of the Luxury Tax.

If Rush and McGuire re-sign, the roster looks like this:

PG: Curry / Jack / Jenkins
SG: Thompson / Rush
SF: Barnes / McGuire / Jefferson
PF: Lee / Green / Tyler
C: Bogut / Ezeli / Biedrins

Beefing up the front court would appear to be the biggest area of need. Unless the young bigs behind our starters (Green, Ezeli, and Tyler) show promise in Summer League, it would be wise to lean towards a player who can backup the PF and C positions. If they appear to be in decent shape in the front court, the Warriors could also lean towards adding another wing player. Whichever player they target, it would be nice to be able to land a versatile player that can play more than just one position, whether it be a SG/SF, SF/PF, or a PF/C. These are the players I would be targeting with only $1M to spend:
