The Golden State Warriors entered this season with nothing but revenge on their minds. They missed the playoffs last year due to multiple injuries and vowed to dominate the NBA again with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson ready to roll.
But, as you may know by now, Thompson's injury represented a massive change of plans for the Dubs. Their roster wasn't as deep as it used to be and making it back to the NBA Finals without one of their biggest stars was going to be an uphill battle.
Fast-forward to today and Steve Kerr's team is still in a position to make the playoffs. However, it's clear that this roster isn't as good as to compete with teams like the Clippers, Nuggets, Suns, or Jazz.
Golden State Warriors Looking To Bring Back Jordan Bell
So, in an attempt to make a playoff push, the Golden State Warriors will try and fill their last two roster spots. For one of those spots, they're reportedly looking to bring back Jordan Bell to add more depth at the center spot:
"I’m hearing the Warriors are considering a return of Jordan Bell," Marcus Thompson of The Athletic reported.
"Possible reunion with a big that’d fit their current speedy style. Has experience in the Curry offensive ecosystem. Nothing official, but conversations being had. Bell would fit into one of two open roster spots," Anthony Slater of The Athletic added.
Bell was one of the best defenders in the nation when he was in college but his questionable work ethic and lack of development prevented him from reaching his ceiling. Then again, he's the high-energy guy the Warriors have been craving in the paint this season.
While not an offensive factor, the Warriors could certainly use Bell's presence down low behind Kevon Looney, as they're one of the worst rebounding teams in the league and are constantly giving up size.
