NBA: A former star could sign with the Warriors with Curry

This offseason, the Warriors of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson welcomed Chris Paul in place of Jordan Poole. At the same time, Draymond Green has moved on by signing a new contract in the San Francisco Bay Area. Enough to allow head coach Steve Kerr to once again aim for the NBA title. So there is experience, and there could be even more if Dion Waiters joins the Dubs.

Before the NBA season which is fast approaching, the Golden State Warriors would have observed many free players to complete their squad. According to The Athleticthose concerned are Dion Waiters, Kent Bazemore, Tony Snell, Harry Giles, Trey Burke et Juan Toscano-Anderson. Among the six NBA players currently unemployed, the 31-year-old guard, Waitersprobably stands out the most.

Who is Dion Waiters?

The Syracuse product hasn’t appeared in an NBA game since the 2019-20 season, when he played for the Los Angeles Lakers in the Orlando bubble. As a reminder, Waiters was selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers in fourth position during the 2012 Draft. He also made a very promising debut with 14.7 points on average during his first season in the elite. After three seasons in Cleveland, the guard landed at Thunder d’Oklahoma City (2014-16) and Heat de Miami (2016-19). But during his time in Florida, after receiving a $52 million contract extension, Waiters sank.

A passage to the Heat damaged

The latter has not completed his contract with the Heat due to his behavior off the field. Indeed, Miami suspended the Philadelphia native three times in 2019-2020, notably because he complained about his role on social media and partying even while he was “sick”. From, Waiters said he regretted his time in Miami: “ I was so irresponsible and immature. I gave up on the Heat. They were good to me. I didn’t handle it well at all. “, he declared to the Bleacher Report after participating in a private training session during the Las Vegas Summer League. In short, Waiters could be a good alternative to Klay Thompson et Andrew Wiggins to Warriorsif and only if the latter has indeed evolved mentally.
