BRAKING NEWS: Warriors must chase three buyout candidates following the 2024 NBA trade deadline.

Given how badly the Warriors have played so far this season, Golden State Warriors supporters undoubtedly anticipated that the organization would make a deal at the NBA trade deadline in 2024.

According to reports, Golden State attempted to pursue Toronto Raptors center Kelly Olynyk as well as Chicago Bulls guard Alex Caruso, but obviously, no deals came together.

Instead, in exchange for veteran Cory Joseph and monetary considerations, the front office had to settle for an Indiana Pacers second-round pick.

The Warriors now have an opening on their roster due to the Joseph deal, and the front management may be able to fill it through the buyout market.

Golden State’s deadline for filling the 14th roster vacancy is February 22nd. However, it seems that they are not in a rush to do so. The Warriors’ strategies were outlined by Anthony Slater of The Athletic.

Golden State is likely to turn Lester Quiñones’ two-way contract into a conventional agreement. Having played in 24 games for the Warriors this season, he has 26 games remaining in which he is eligible to participate as a two-way player. With Quiñones signed later in the season, the Dubs might pursue a veteran on the buyout market right now.
