With Maggette and Turiaf joining the team and the likely resigning of Ellis and Biedrins, this is the projected financial status of the Golden State Warriors if they were to match Azubuike's offer sheet.

(click to enlarge graphic)

If the Warriors decline to match Azubuike, sign Biedrins to a starting salary of $7.6 mil, and hold off on resigning Ellis (est. cap holds of $1 mil), the Warriors will have roughly $6 mil. in cap space after renouncing all their remaining free agents and team exceptions. It is rumored that they will make a 'Big Run' at RFA Louis Williams of the Philadelphia 76ers. If they use up all their cap space in an offer sheet for Williams, the maximum they can give is approximately a 5 year / $35 mil deal.

If anyone sees any errors, please let me know.

If we end up signing Louis Williams plus a few minimum contract players off the Summer League squad, the roster could look something like this:

PG: Monta Ellis / Louis Williams / C.J. Watson
SG: Stephen Jackson / Marco Belinelli / Jamont Gordon
SF: Corey Maggette / Anthony Randolph / Anthony Morrow
PF: Al Harrington / Brandan Wright / Richard Hendrix
C: Andris Biedrins / Ronny Turiaf / Kosta Perovic
