The back-to-back NBA champions have the best starting five in the league, but Lacob confirmed that they still want to add ‘a really good player’.
The Warriors have an open roster slot, and are looking to secure a player from the buyout market in the coming weeks.
According to Lacob, the team was originally pursuing a center, but have been so impressed by the introduction of DeMarcus Cousins that they no longer need one.
The most notable names on the buyout market are Markieff Morris and Carmelo Anthony, however, rumours have suggested that DeAndre Jordan could be bought out by the New York Knicks.
Jordan was sent to New York as part of the Kristaps Porzingis trade, and it is possible that the Knicks will sacrifice him in order to further free up salary cap space.
Despite being top of the Western Conference and heavy favourites for the NBA title, Lacob insisted that the Warriors are always on the lookout for players to improve the team.
“We always have lists. We always have contingency plans,” Lacob said.
“You never know what’s going to happen in the NBA – who might get bought out as a surprise, who you think might (become available).
“Our goal is to add a really good player – someone who fits in the locker room, who fits this team and just really wants to be part of a championship run and will understand their role,
“So, we’re open to really anything.
“We’ve got a long list of potential players that could fit that and we’re just going to hope that somebody springs free and is available for us.”
The Knicks are trying to create cap space in order to make a run at the free agency market the summer, and in particular are targeting Warriors superstar Kevin Durant.
Durant is expected to become a free agent this summer rather than exercise the player option for an extra year in his contract.
If he does, then the Knicks are expected offer him a max salary deal in order to persuade him to switch from the Western Conference to the East.
Durant’s team-mate Klay Thompson can also become a free agent at the end of the season, but it is expected that if Durant leaves, Thompson will be given a max contract to stay in the Bay Area.
