Various times in the last few weeks, there have been reports that the Golden State Warriors are targeting a major upgrade at small forward this offseason. The seventh overall pick in the 2012 Draft will be in play. Just a few days ago, Warriors consultant Jerry West spoke openly about the need for the franchise to add contributing veterans to the roster.
According to contracostatimes.com:
The Warriors will also explore using the No. 7 pick to get a veteran. .... Golden State has long since had interest in Philadelphia's Andre Iguodala, who is exactly the playmaking athlete the Warriors need at small forward. Other small forwards high on their list, according to league sources, are Portland's Nick Batum, Indiana's Danny Granger and Memphis' Rudy Gay. And don't be surprised if the Warriors make a play for Atlanta forward Josh Smith.
