Aaron Gordon could be a low-cost option for the Golden State Warriors, as they look to add more athleticism to their roster.

While Gordon has not been able to take the leap that was expected of him, he is still a solid two-way player in the league.

As a versatile big, he would add depth to the Golden State Warriors' rotations and infuse them with his energetic playmaking abilities. He is having a good season for the Orlando Magic, averaging 14.8 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.8 assists on 48% shooting from the floor.


#4 Danilo Gallinari

Danilo Gallinari is another high-value target for the Golden State Warriors this season.

Gallinari is a three-point specialist and would fit in the Golden State Warriors' system well. Over the years, the player has proven to be a difference-maker and was a pivotal part of the OKC Thunders' impressive playoff run last year.

After battling with a career-threatening injury in 2013, the big man has successfully made his comeback in the NBA.

He is at an age where it's now or never for him to join a team that could take him to the NBA Finals.

Gallinari could contribute more than just shooting the ball with his size. With the Atlanta Hawks focusing on young talent, a deal could be worked out that sends the player to the Golden State Warriors.


#5 PJ Tucker

PJ Tucker should be one of the top players on the Golden State Warriors' radar this season, as he would be a great fit in their system.

Tucker has proven himself as a fierce competitor and could potentially offset some deficiencies that the Golden State Warriors have this campaign. PJ would bolster their lineup with his toughness at the defensive end and his ability to stretch the floor with his long-range shooting.ย 

The Houston Rockets continue to struggle this season and could look very different once they resolve the James Harden situation. As a result, the Rockets could go into rebuilding mode and be open to part ways with PJ Tucker.ย 

Tucker will make under $8 million in his final year; the Warriors should be able to scoop him up.
