The Golden State Warriors are interested in signing Austin Rivers in free agency, per Tim Kawakami of The Athletic.

Rivers remains an unrestricted free agent and could fill one of the last spots in the Warriors’ roster.

Golden State is searching for Klay Thompson’s replacement, as the latter suffered a season-ending Achilles injury on his right leg.

Rivers averaged 8.8 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 1.7 assists last season.
