UniqueThis 29 Apr 17

Now that the 2023-24 NBA regular season is over, we're turning our attention to how each team should approach the offseason, including the draft and free agency. It starts with the 10 teams that have been jockeying for lottery position and the best chance of making the No. 1 pick in the 2024 NBA draft. Four more teams will join them after this week's play-in tournament, followed by the 16 teams who participate in the 2024 NBA playoffs.

We're breaking down the potential moves for each franchise, including a look at the state of each roster, finances, priorities for each front office, extension candidates to watch, team needs and future draft assets.

Key: ETO= Early Termination Option | P= Player Option | R=Restricted | T=Team Option

Eliminated in play-in tournament

Golden State Warriors

2023-24 record: 46-36

Draft picks in June: No. 52 (via MIL)

Note: The Warriors are sending their own first to Portland if it is 5-14. They would retain it if the pick moves into the top four in the May 12 draft lottery.

Odds to retain their own first: 3.4%

Free agents: Klay Thompson, Gary Payton II (P), Dario Saric, Usman Garuba, Lester Quinones (R) and Jerome Robinson

State of the roster: The recent four-time NBA Champions are officially at a crossroads. The only thing guaranteed is that star Stephen Curry and coach Steve Kerr will be back when the regular season tips off in late October. Curry is viewed as untouchable and has two years left on his contract. Kerr recently signed a two-year, $35 million extension.
