Jerry West hasn’t had a major impact on the Warriors since joining the team’s executive board, but that might be about to change.

"I'm going to be up here a lot more. I think something can be done here, and it's kind of fun for me," said West, who believes the Warriors are closer to becoming a playoff team than their 9-14 record indicates. "It's a challenge, but it can happen in a year's time if we can get lucky with a few things."

West isn’t ready to “blow up” the Warriors roster.

"We need more chips, more players, and we'll have the capability next year," he said. "We need to solve our one glaring need at center, and once you have some chips, that's when you can make a trade or shake things up to get something you don't have. It's challenging, but I'm confident that it can be done."
