They need Evans to be the defensive player they thought he could be on Draft Day. Quinn Cook and the other reserves were getting torched by Fred Van Vleet and Kyle Lowry last night. KD isn't gonna be there one way or another next year. Cousins is gone. And Klay sounds like he's out too.

They're gonna have to go back to building a solid core around Steph and it's going to be a great opportunity for Jacob if he isn't traded.

JE3 is not a replacement for Klay, he's a replacement for Igoudala if he leaves/retires...that's always been the plan. He doesn't need to score much and just defends everyone's best players under 6'10".

He obviously can't do a fraction of what Klay does but regardless Klay being out opens up a bunch of minutes at the 2. I always thought JE3s most likely role was defensive stopper and hit open threes. With Klay being their premier perimeter defender JE3 has an opportunity with Klay out. Livingston is expected to retire as well so there's definitely minutes to be had if he can prove himself worthy.

Golden State just drafted a shooting guard from Michigan at the end of the first round. Pressure is on Jacob now.
