Warriors’ Big Plans for New Signing Revealed

Since Otto Porter Jr. left the Golden State Warriors in free agency after his significant 2022 season, the team has felt his absence. The Warriors were unable to successfully replace Poter’s productivity, which was so important to their title run, despite the fact that he could not repeat his 2022 campaign from the previous season with the Toronto Raptors.

After a few quiet days of free agency, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Saturday morning that the Warriors and unrestricted forward Dario Saric had reached an agreement.

The organization is hoping that Saric can take on the crucial position that Otto Porter Jr. played two seasons ago, according to a separate report from Anthony Slater of The Athletic.

Saric effectively performs the same function that Otto Porter Jr. did so well in two previous seasons and JaMychal Green largely failed to do this past season, according to Slater. He is a frontcourt shooter who can be positioned next to Draymond Green, Kevon Looney, or Jonathan Kuminga to help spread the floor in lineups that might otherwise be crowded.

Saric and Chris Paul had a close relationship while they were teammates with the Phoenix Suns, as noted by Slater. Even with the little financial flexibility the Warriors have, upgrading a squad at this stage of free agency is never simple, but the Warriors did well with the signing of Dario Saric to the front court.
