The way the salaries are stacked, the Warriors are due for a big offseason of spending after this coming year.
With Andris Biedrins and Richard Jefferson -- wisely -- opting into their player options worth $9 and $11.046 million, respectively, the Warriors will have at least $20 million coming off the books after the 2013-'14 season. And that doesn't include Andrew Bogut's $14.2 million expiring contract.

Golden State doesn't have a ton of salary cap flexibility this offseason, with only Jarrett Jack's $5.58 million contract gone.
When Joe Lacob first purchased the Warriors, he wanted to make a big splash and be bold and aggressive in his overhaul of the team. After the upcoming 2013-'14 NBA season, he should get his chance -- the Warriors could be looking at a big cash surplus.
No matter what Carl Landry and Brandon Rush decide to do with their $4 million player options this offseason, the Warriors will have freed up $34.246 million between Bogut, Jefferson and Biedrins alone.
Here is a list of the players whose contracts expire after the 2013-'14 season, making them free agents when the Warriors get their spending money:

These decisions will impact the shape of the Warriors franchise for years to come. How do you think Joe Lacob, Peter Guber and the Warriors brass should play it?
