Warriors assistant coach Leandro Barbosa recently said on the "Runnin' Plays" podcast that he can see Jordan Poole filling a role similar to the one he had on the 2014-15 championship team.
With Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green all due to be back at full strength for the 2020-21 campaign, the lineup is going to look far different from the youth-dominated rotation that Steve Kerr relied upon this season. Golden State has a need for a reserve guard capable of holding down the fort while Curry and/or Thompson rest, and in Barbosa's view that player may already be on the roster: Poole. "He's hungry. Very hungry. I'm very interested about that kid," Barbosa said on the podcast. "He's very young, there is a lot for him to learn, and we know that we are going to need him on the court." Poole's fantasy value takes a major hit heading into next season thanks to the returns of the Warriors' veterans, but this minicamp will give him the chance to show the coaching staff that he's capable of taking on a prominent reserve role.
