NBA free agency is slated to open Oct. 18 at 3:00 p.m. PT.
Despite the fact that still is over three months away, it’s never too early to look ahead.
Last week, Grant Liffmann listed six «under-the-radar» free agents the Warriors could target. And on Wednesday — Monte Poole, Kerith Burke, Liffmann and yours truly advanced the discussion in the latest «Warriors Roundtable.»
One player discussed in depth was Josh Jackson of the Memphis Grizzlies. The 23-year-old — who was the No. 4 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft — averaged 16.6 points, 2.8 assists and 1.4 steals over his last five games before the season was suspended, while shooting over 38 percent from deep.
How he plays in the Orlando «bubble» might greatly impact his earning potential on the open market, and it’s possible the Warriors won’t be able to afford him.
Watch the video above to see the complete conversation.
