Monta can play both if he had a coach that held him accountable for when he's lazy on D (Recent coaches can't because they play him 48 minutes a night). Curry doesn't look like he will ever be a good defender, but with effort could at least become more serviceable.
Sam Dalembert would be a decent option for a really solid defensive post presence. He has played really well in Sac this year, and he's been surprisingly efficient on offense. I think he could be had next year for around MLE, 15 mil over 3 years. Don't know if the Warriors would be willing to take that on though. Even with that I still don't see a legitimate post offense option. I love David Lee, but he doesn't seem like the type of guy you can have post up to get a layup or get the foul line consistently. I think if you sign a defensive minded big man, you need to have a solid offensive post option to compliment him. Just to keep other teams defense honest and open things up for the perimeter scorers.
Tayshaun would be a great to shore up the perimeter D. He guards the elite 2's and 3's as good as anyone in the league. With monta and curry a liability he would invaluable. He's 30 now, just got off a big contract, so I'm not sure what he's looking for. With the Warriors not being a potential championship right now it will be tough to get those solid veterans without way overpaying them.
Looks like next year they will be about 10 mill under the cap, which will give them some wiggle room.
