The Los Angeles Lakers have high hopes in the offseason, as they are expected to chase top free agents on the market. Their interest in LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Paul George of the Oklahoma City Thunder is one of the worst-kept secrets in the league.

Since their focus this summer would be on signing max-level superstars, their own free agents such as Brook Lopez and Isaiah Thomas might be forced to look for other opportunities. Lopez had one of the worst season of his career this year, and the former Brooklyn Nets center is expected to look for a new home in the offseason.

Brook Lopez to Golden State Warriors makes sense

According to LA Sports Hub, the Golden State Warriors are the best potential fit for Lopez.

The 30-year-old center is expected to look for a lucrative deal. The Warriors currently have one of the highest payrolls in the league, which means they are unlikely to have a room for an expensive deal for Lopez.

However, LA Sports Hub pointed out that signing with Golden State [VIDEO] makes a lot of sense for Lopez, who averaged 13.0 points and 4.0 rebounds per game this season. It could give him the best opportunity to prove that he can still compete at a high level because he would be a perfect fit for the Warriors coach Steve Kerr's system.

It also does not take a rocket scientist to know that moving to Golden State would put him in the best position to win a championship in the next several seasons. The Warriors are currently built to dominate with their four superstars in Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

Lopez could be a new offensive weapon for Golden State

While the focus on offense would be on their top four players, Lopez could bring a new dimension to their offense. He could eventually become their starting center and give Golden State a better scorer in the position. Lopez would be an upgrade over Zaza Pachulia and JaVale McGee.

The former Stanford standout could also banner their second unit's front line along with rookie Jordan Bell. Lopez could wreak havoc inside the paint with his scoring ability, while Bell could make an impact with his intensity and rebounding ability. Bell is also known as a good defender during his time with Oregon.

Lopez would also be an additional outside threat, as he has developed a decent three-point shooting over the past several seasons. It is worth noting that to sign Lopez, the Warriors [VIDEO] might be forced to let go of Pachulia and McGee, who are both set to become free agents after this season.
