Please tell me how the Warriors would keep all their core including KD and be able to sign Anthony Davis. Its ridiculous. Maybe you were joking. At least I hope so.

Oh gotcha

No, I think of the core as Steph, Klay, and Dray.

We might be able to add AD with those three (leaving money on the table tho) and very minimal bench.

Patrick McCaw reportedly waiting for Jimmy Butler trade to sign deal
Once the Minnesota Timberwolves inevitably trade Jimmy Butler, free agent wing Patrick McCaw is then expected to finally land with a team.

"Sources: Patrick McCaw may wait until the Jimmy Butler trade plays out to sign a new deal. If a team ends up doing a 2-for-1 or 3-for-1 deal that frees up roster spots and playing time, McCaw may look to sign there. As an RFA, the Warriors can still match any deal McCaw signs."
7:19 AM - Oct 4, 2018

According to RealGM's Keith Smith, the 22-year-old is waiting to see if a Butler deal opens up a roster spot or two. However, it's worth noting that that Golden State Warriors can still match any offer sheet McCaw signs since he's a restricted free agent. McCaw has spent his entire career with the Warriors, winning two NBA championships in his two years in the league.

He reportedly declined a two-year deal worth $4 million, betting on himself to find a team that would be able to offer him serviceable playing time. The 6-foot-7 wing has averaged 15.9 minutes per game during his tenure in Golden State, making 30 appearances in their regular season starting lineup.
According to Anthony Slater, he and his family believe that he could help a team in need of perimeter help more than he's been able to showcase with the Warriors (via The Athletic):

"This isn't as much about money for McCaw as it is about opportunity… Sources indicate that both McCaw and his father, Jeff, who has become a vocal part of this process, believe a more expansive role is the best thing for his growth and eventual earning potential."
The Athletic's Jon Krawczynski reported that Minnesota covets a "starting-caliber wing" and another young player in exchange for Butler. McCaw can potentially fit either of those roles.

Perhaps the Timberwolves could use McCaw if the team does not land both a starting-caliber wing and a young player in such a deal. When McCaw was a starter for Golden State last season, he averaged 9.9 points, 2.9 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.7 steals per 36 minutes. His starting splits were very comparable in his rookie campaign.

Minnesota could wind up needing to fill a roster spot if they are also able to unload Gorgui Dieng. However, the more likely scenario is that another team will end up offering multiple players for Butler and need to find a contributor capable of playing key minutes for their squad. If that scenario plays out, McCaw could step right in and make an impact (if the Warriors don't match his offer sheet).

Exactly! If KD leaves then Lacob, Guber, Welts and Myers certainly have back up plans.

NBA.com 2018-19 GM Survey
For third straight season, Warriors favored to win NBA title

According to 87 percent of league's general managers, the Warriors will be celebrating a third straight title.
Can the Golden State Warriors make it three straight and four out of five? The league's decision-makers think so, though a few of them have left the door open for a new champ.

In the 17th annual NBA.com GM Survey, the Warriors are once again the overwhelming favorite to win the 2019 championship, just not quite as overwhelming a favorite as they were a year ago, when 93 percent of GMs picked them to repeat. With LeBron James moving to the Western Conference, the GMs have picked the Boston Celtics to return to The Finals after a seven-year absence, and there's some belief out there that the Celtics can dethrone the champs.
The Celtics are led by the new "best head coach in the NBA," have one of the league's most promising young cores, and a star that one GM tabbed to win the MVP this season. But Kyrie Irving was just one of nine MVP candidates, the most in the history of the survey.

There's no consensus on the player GMs would most like to start a franchise either, with four different players receiving at least five votes on that question.

One of those four is LeBron James, who is entering his 16th season and his 13th season as the league's best small forward, according to GMs. He also remains the player that forces coaches to make the most adjustments, the best passer, the best leader, the most versatile player, and the player with the best basketball IQ.

The GMs responded to 49 different questions about the best teams, players, coaches, fans, and offseason moves. General managers were not permitted to vote for their own team or personnel. Percentages are based on the pool of respondents to that particular question, rather than all 30 GMs.

PREDICTIONS Which team will win the 2019 NBA Finals?
1. Golden State – 87%
2. Boston – 7%
Houston – 7%
Last year: Golden State – 93%

Again, lets worry about this year and enjoy it. Anyway, Anthony Davis is signed with the Pelicans until 2021. Who knows what will be happening with the Dubs then.

Interesting to see how they manage draymond this year

His knee flared up after the first preseason game.

Not sure if bell or looney can provide that same defensive intensity yet
