Dunc'd On: Warriors, Cavs Offseasons, News

Jun 22, 2016 4:28 AM

After losing in the NBA Finals, what will the Golden State Warriors do this offseason? They can potentially get to $27 million in space, but is it worth it if they can't sign Kevin Durant?  Should they match on Harrison Barnes, a restricted free agent? Move on from Andrew Bogut? What about some of the lesser free agents like Mo Speights and Leandro Barbosa?

Then (38:00), the Cleveland Cavaliers' offseason. What are LeBron's options for re-signing, how much will JR Smith get in free agency, should the Cavs match on Matthew Dellavedova?  What will their tax situation be, and what options do they have with their cap exceptions to get more reinforcements for next year?

Then, news discussion including some possible destinations for Greg Monroe (1:02:00).
