Coming off one of the most successful seasons in team history, the Golden State Warriors unexpectedly fired head coach Mark Jackson and replaced him with longtime player and broadcaster, Steve Kerr. While there was some movement on the coaching front, much of the team that took the Los Angeles Clippers to seven games returns intact. Check out what the team's depth chart currently looks like.

Stephen Curry is the best player on the Warriors and has really taken his game to another level in recent seasons. At one point, people had doubts as to whether Curry could be a legitimate point guard, but he has silenced his detractors by becoming one of the best PGs in the NBA. The Warriors also reached an agreement with free agent Shaun Livingston, which will allow them to give Curry some much-needed rest now that he has a legit backup.

Klay Thompson is the other half of the "Splash Brothers" and is one of the best shooters in the game. While Thompson's name has been in trade rumors regarding the acquisition of Kevin Love, he remains the starting two guard for the Warriors. Former first-round pick Harrison Barnes, who hasn't lived up to his massive hype as of yet, spells both Thompson and Andre Iguodala on the wings, but he could be moved this offseason, too.

Andre Iguodala proved to be a worthy free agent signing for the Warriors as he brought his multi-faceted game and defensive tenacity to Oakland, and was a key part of the Warriors' success. It's no surprise that, with Iguodala leading the way, the Warriors' defense was better than ever. Green proved to be a very useful player off the bench, capable of scoring from inside and out and creating mismatches for smaller forwards.

Much like Thompson, David Lee's name has dominated trade talks regarding Love going to Golden State. Lee has a few more seasons remaining on the free agent deal he signed with Golden State, and when healthy, he continues to put up solid numbers. Speights has proven to be one of the more underrated backup big men in basketball as he possesses the ability to step out and hit the jumper, and he can also bang inside with bigger forwards.

If Andrew Bogut could ever stay healthy, he'd be one of the best centers in the game, but he just can't seem to shake the injury bug. Bogut is one of the best defensive centers in the NBA and is very difficult to handle on the low block, but he needs to be on the court to have an impact. Festus Ezeli played well in his rookie season before suffering a knee injury that kept him out last year. If he can return, he'll be a big boost to the Warriors.
