After Stephen Curry broke his hand on Wednesday night against the Phoenix Suns, people started to look for solutions for the Warriors.

One of those offering their advice is former NBA big man and current ESPN analyst Kendrick Perkins, who thinks the Golden State Warriors should take a look at Carmelo Anthony or Jamal Crawford after losing Curry:

“At this point if I’m Golden State I would strongly consider bringing in Melo or one of these unsigned Vets out here like Jamal Crawford, Joe Johnson or even a Lance Stephenson to come in and provide some type of offense for them!,” Perkins wrote on Twitter.

With Curry out the Warriors could use some scoring, something that’s never been an issue for Carmelo Anthony or Jamal Crawford.

Melo played only 10 games last season with the Houston Rockets before he was traded to the Chicago Bulls, who ended up waiving the future Hall of Famer. With the Texans, Anthony averaged 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds with the Rockets while shooting 40.5 percent from the field, 32.8 percent from beyond the arc and 68.2 percent from the free-throw line.

Crawford, on the other hand, played with the Phoenix Suns last season, averaging 7.9 points, 1.3 rebounds, and 3.6 assists in 64 games while shooting 39.7 percent from the field, 33.2 percent from beyond the arc and 84.5 percent from the free-throw line.

At this moment, the Warriors are 1-3 and with Curry missing a big part of the season, they won’t have more remedy than to take a look at the free agency and offer one of these veterans a new opportunity in the league.
