Now that the young, run-and-gun team from the Bay Area has been eliminated from the NBA playoffs and have had some time to look back on their magical run, it is time to look forward to next season.

A few things were proven by the Warriors this postseason. First, Stephen Curry is a star. With what is easily the best jump shot in the NBA, a quick release, various floaters and difficult shots to block in the lane, elite ball-handling, and improving play making skills, Curry has established himself as one of the top players in the league.

Secondly, Klay Thompson is one of the league’s up-and-coming stars. If Thompson can develop more as an all-around scorer alongside Curry, the Warriors’ back court could be not just the best shooting duo in the game, but the best back court in the future.

Last but not least, Mark Jackson is one of the best motivators among the coaching ranks and is the right coach for the Dubs. After taking a chance on a former player with no prior coaching experience, Golden State made Jackson their head coach a season ago. Now, Jackson is regarded as one of the better coaches in the game. Most importantly, his players respect him and have bought into his blue collar system.

Now, on to the off-season, free agency in particular. Unrestricted free agents will become official as of July 1, and the chaos will begin shortly after. With names as big as Chris Paul and Dwight Howard on the market, this is a look at some of the more under-the-radar free agents that the Warriors should strongly consider, if not, make a priority.
