  2. Report: Houston Rockets to pursue Carmelo Anthony this summer

    Mar 14, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    At a panel during the Sloan Conference, Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers described the arduous process of acquiring Andre Iguodala. The Warriors had no cap room last summer, so Myers faced a two-sided task to land the free agent. Not only did he negotiate with Iguodala, Myers discussed trades with other teams to…

    Oct 15, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    Last season: The Warriors ultimately overachieved when all was said and done in 2013, getting to the second round of the playoffs and taking the eventual Western Conference champion Spurs to six games before their season was ended. For a sixth seed entering the playoffs with just 47 wins and having to go through the…

    Jazz Scrimmage

    Last season: The Jazz finished 43-39, but they missed the playoffs for the second time in three seasons. Nobody really knew what direction Utah was headed, perhaps including Utah itself. The Jazz kept Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap, both on expiring contracts, past the trade deadline to make a playoff push. All they got was…

  5. Report: Jazz to sign John Lucas

    Jul 15, 2013, 6:25 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey talks with guard John Lucas III during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Detroit Pistons in Auburn Hills

    If the Jazz are Riggin’ for Wiggins – and by letting two of their top players (Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson) leave in free agency and trading for hefty contracts (Richard Jefferson, Andris Biedrins and, to a lesser degree, Brandon Rush) just to get draft picks, it sure seems like they are – they’ll still…

  6. Iguodala was an hour away from signing with Dallas then Warriors trade went down

    Jul 12, 2013, 10:49 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    Mark Cuban and the Dallas Mavericks were thisclose to signing Andre Iguodala. Instead, a capped-out but aggressive Golden State ownership pulled together a three-team trade that gave them the room to add Iguodala to an already strong Golden State roster and makes them far more dangerous in the West. Iguodala wanted to be a Warrior,…

    Jul 9, 2013, 10:43 AM EDT

    Randy Foye

    We told you this could be coming on Monday — veteran two guard Randy Foye could be going from Utah to Golden State as an extension to the Andre Iguodala sign-and-trade to Golden State. Now that is all but official, it has been agreed to according to the Associated Press. Foye is a free agent…

    Jul 8, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets guard Andre Iguodala drives past Utah Jazz guard Randy Foye during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Salt Lake City, Utah

    The Warriors will sign Andre Iguodala to a four-year, $48 million contract.

    Los Angeles Clippers Introduce Chris Paul

    Teams began entering into agreements with free agent players shortly after midnight Eastern on July 1, but due to a league-imposed moratorium on activity, no deals can be officially signed until July 10. We’re almost there, and plenty of the top names available have indeed been swooped up by teams looking to make a splash…

  11. Paul Millsap agrees to two-year deal with the Hawks

    Jul 6, 2013, 12:31 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Utah Jazz knew that two of their best players would be unrestricted free agents this summer, and yet they played out all of last season without trading them to try and get anything of value in return. They didn’t bother to re-sign them, either. After Al Jefferson left for the greener pastures of the…

  12. Report: Mavericks told they are out of Dwight Howard running

    Jul 5, 2013, 5:38 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    And then there were three… The Atlanta Hawks really never stood a chance to get Dwight Howard in free agency (he was only going home if Chris Paul went with him, and that chance died). Now the Dallas Mavericks have been told they are out of the race, something first reported by to Marc Stein…

  13. Warriors are reportedly trying to dump contracts to create enough cap space to sign Dwight Howard

    Los Angeles Lakers Dwight Howard reaches for a rebound next to Golden State Warriors Festus Ezeli during their NBA basketball game in Oakland

    When the report surfaced that the Golden State Warriors had made “a real impression” on Dwight Howard during their free agent meeting with the prized big man earlier this week, and had a legitimate chance of landing him, it honestly seemed laughable at best. The reason, of course, was that given the Warriors’ salary cap…

    Congratulations Golden State, you get another year of Richard Jefferson. As everyone expected, the 32-year-old swingman picked up his $11 million option for next season, his agent Todd Eley told Chris Haynes at CSNNW.com. “Richard has exercised his option to include the 2013-14 season in his current contract,” Eley said. Combine Jefferson with Andris Biedrins,…

    May 24, 2013, 1:22 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs Tim Duncan drives to the basket against Golden State Warriors Andris Biedrins during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Oakland

    When a player averages less than one point and three rebounds per game over the course of a season, while possessing the option to come back for another year with the same team at a salary of $9 million, it doesn’t take a degree in advanced economics to figure out what the chosen course of…

    May 23, 2013, 2:47 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    As the Dwight Howard free agency news cycle rolls on, the latest report has him expanding the list of teams he’ll consider signing with this summer.

    Roy Hibbert, your suspension will come down tomorrow.

  21. Warriors to shut down Andrew Bogut for at least 7-10 days

    Nov 8, 2012, 4:10 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    Andrew Bogut desperately wanted to get on the court and help his Golden State Warriors from the moment the season tipped off… and he there on the court opening night in the starting lineup. Helping? That’s up for debate. (I mean, he’s still better than Andris Biedrins.) But he clearly was not moving well following…

    Steve-Kerr

    Every athlete goes through slumps. How they deal with it changes. Some guys need a slump buster. Some guys talk to confidants.

    Orlando Magic Hedo Turkoglu complains after he picked up second foul against New York Knicks in NBA basketball game in New York

    It’s list season in the NBA — there is not much to write about, so everyone seems to be doing a list of some kind. Counting down the game’s best players, for example. But Sean Deveney at the Sporting News went a different way and asked “who has the worst contracs in the NBA? One…
