The rumors of the Golden State acquiring the service of Nowitzki started when many NBA fans and experts queried regarding the possible next steps of the former champion team for the upcoming 2016-2017 NBA season. After their historical defeat against the Cleveland Cavaliers, many NBA enthusiast, and loyal GWS fans were asking on what the management would do to recapture the coveted NBA title and reaffirm their dominance in the league.

As part of the rumoured team preparation, the name of Kevin Durant surfaced as one of the potential star players to bolster the roster of GWS. However, Durant repeatedly emphasized in previous interviews his loyalty with Oklahoma City Thunder, thus brewing uncertainty of Warriors acquisition of his service.
