According to an ESPN.com report, the Warriors may be considering making an offer to 76ers restricted free agent Louis Williams.
The ESPN story quoted one “plugged-in” source as believing the Warriors “are planning to make a “big run’ at (Williams).”
Golden State is roughly $4.5 million under the salary cap after the Lakers declined to match the Warriors’ offer sheet to Ronny Turiaf, meaning it could offer Williams as much as $26 million over five years.
The Sixers would have seven days to match a signed offer sheet for Williams or Andre Iguodala, who is also a restricted free agent. Golden State is looking for another point/combo guard to help Monta Ellis share the load after Baron Davis signed with the LA Clippers.
