Player: Zaza Pachulia
Height/weight: 6-11, 275
Salary: $2.90 million
2015-16 in review: Pachulia started 69 games for the Mavericks, averaging 8.6 points, 9.4 rebounds per game, while shooting 77 percent from the line. He scored in double figures 32 times and posted 27 games with at least 12 rebounds.
2016-17 outlook: Feeling fortunate that Pachulia would sign a below-market deal, the Warriors want nothing more than consistency in the middle. He’s not a shot blocker, so the desire is for plenty of rebounding, solid team defense and a sprinkling of buckets. Pachulia can offer that, as well as his well-known toughness in the paint.
Floor: He has difficulty keeping pace with teammates and plays less than visualized.
Ceiling: He rebounds in double figures, sets solid screens and adds dimension to the offense.
