Golden State Warriors

  1. Wizards open contract negotiations with John Wall

    Jul 15, 2013, 9:12 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Washington Wizards

    The Wizards want to extend John Wall — he’s the guy they want to build around, the face of the franchise, he’s good in the locker room and good on the court (when he’s healthy and on the court). In his last 20 games last season he averaged averaged 23.9 points per game on 48.3…

  2. Iguodala says he seriously considered Kings but they put him on deadline

    Jul 15, 2013, 7:21 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    It was one of the stranger moves of the off-season — Sacramento made a very nice four-year, $52 million offer to Andre Iguodala then a few days later yanked the offer. It all worked out, Iguodala took a little less money ($48 million over four years) to land in Golden State. Now he’s telling his…

  3. 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…

  4. Summer League Notes: The svelte Draymond Green and other Day 2 highlights

    Jul 14, 2013, 12:25 AM EDT

    Wizards Warriors Basketball

    LAS VEGAS — Saturday saw some rough rookie debuts but also some strong performances. Here are a few notes and highlights from Day 2 of Summer League in Vegas. • Ben McLemore had a rough shooting Summer League debut at 4-of-23, but as noted in PBT’s story it wasn’t as bad as it looked. •…

  5. 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,…

  7. Andrew Bynum has gained weight, not touched a ball in some time

    Jul 11, 2013, 2:08 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Let’s put it kindly — there is great skepticism around the league that Andrew Bynum can or will contribute much as an NBA player this season or ever again in the future. Yes, his knees that have been a chronic problem and kept him out all of last season. More than that, however, are questions about…

  8. Reports: Andrew Bynum agrees to sign with Cavaliers

    Jul 10, 2013, 8:24 PM EDT

    bynum-flagrant-beasley

    That was fast. After meeting with the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday, Andrew Bynum has agreed to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to multiple reports. The contract details appear to be the same as were initially reported. From Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports: Andrew Bynum’s deal w/ Cleveland will include $6 million of $12M guaranteed…

  9. Reports: Jermaine O’Neal, Toney Douglas to sign with Golden State

    Jul 9, 2013, 3:09 PM EDT

    Jermaine O'Neal

    Golden State looks formidable: Stephen Curry at the point, Klay Thompson at the two, Andre Iguodala and David Lee are your forwards. Andrew Bogut is the starting center and his health (and defense) could be the lynchpin for how far this Warriors team can go. However, they need depth — and they may have found…

  10. Report: Randy Foye agrees to be part of sign-and-trade, join Nuggets

    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…

  11. Report: Warriors to sign Marreese Speights to three-year deal

    Jul 8, 2013, 8:04 PM EDT

    Marreese Speights, Festus Ezeli

    The Warriors depleted their bench while upgrading their top six, which is a pretty good tradeoff. In the playoffs, where Golden State is and should now be focused, rotations shrink and a team’s best players matter more. But it doesn’t hurt to have depth, and this should help bolster the Warriors’ bench. Marc J. Spears…

  12. If Jazz guard Randy Foye agrees to Nuggets contract, Warriors could spend more in free agency

    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. Golden State will also trade Richard Jefferson, Andris Biedrins, Brandon Rush and draft picks to the Jazz for Kevin Murphy. That much we know. Utah guard Randy Foye, a free agent, might go to the Nuggets on a three-year, $9 million contract (with…

  13. Winners and losers to this point in NBA free agency

    Jul 7, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    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…

  14. One of the next big summer questions: How big an extension for John Wall?

    Jul 7, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    John Wall

    Agent Dan Fegan has been a tad busy at the start of free agency, what with being one of the agents and key advisors to Dwight Howard and all. But now that is basically done and Fegan can move on to another client and one of the other interesting questions of the NBA Summer: What…

  15. Warriors lose key reserves Jarrett Jack and Carl Landry in free agency

    Jul 6, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Warriors forward Carl Landry reacts after making a shot and drawing a foul against the Spurs during their NBA basketball game in San Antonio, Texas

    The Warriors were a fun and exciting team last season, as well as one that exceeded expectations. If they’re going to continue that improvement next year, they’ll be doing it without two key reserves, both of whom were lost in free agency. Jarrett Jack played big point guard minutes for the Warriors off the bench,…

  16. 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…

  17. Dwight Howard and James Harden could form NBA’s best duo

    Jul 5, 2013, 7:43 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Dwight Howard is a center. James Harden is a guard. Howard is one of the NBA’s best defenders. Harden is one of the league’s top offensive players. Howard is an elite interior scorer. Harden’s range extends beyond the 3-point line. Howard is excellent as the screener in pick-and-rolls. Harden is superb as the ball-handler on…

  18. 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…

  19. Warriors sign Andre Iguodala after trading Richard Jefferson and Andris Biedrins to Jazz

  20. Kings’ brass visit Alabama with DeMarcus Cousins’ big payday looming

    Jul 5, 2013, 12:47 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    In the last two years, a dozen players have posted 17 points and nine rebounds in a season. Here’s the list with the terms of each player’s most recent contract or extension in parentheses: Blake Griffin (five years, $95 million) Dwight Howard (five years, $83,235,900) David Lee (six years, $79,537,680) LaMarcus Aldridge (five years, $65…

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

    Jul 4, 2013, 7:37 PM EDT

    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…

  22. Derrick Rose: ‘I had to be selfish’ with injury

    Jul 3, 2013, 6:02 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Three

John Calipari had an opinion on how Derrick Rose should handle his injury. Bradley Beal had an opinion on how Derrick Rose should handle his injury. Joakim Noah had…

  23. Warriors in mix. Lakers pitch better than expected. Dwight race wide open.

    Jul 3, 2013, 3:48 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers meeting with Dwight Howard turned into the kind of clear the air honest talk about system and effort the team should have had in December, but in the end everybody felt better and on the same page. After his Golden State meeting Dwight Howard can see himself and see himself winning in the…

  24. Nets reportedly out of the running for Kyle Korver

    Jul 3, 2013, 10:02 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    It was only a short time ago when Kyle Korver signing with Brooklyn in free agency was believed to be “in the bag.” That bag has quickly become empty, as the Nets are now reportedly out of the running for Korver’s services. Chris Broussard of ESPN.com says it came down to money, which Brooklyn has very…

    Jul 2, 2013, 9:58 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets Andre Iguodala reacts against the Golden State Warriors during Game 6 of their NBA Western Conference quarter-final playoff basketball game in Oakland

    UPDATE July 3, 2:05 am: The Kings pulled their max offer to Iguodala off the table and now will no longer pursue him. This caught Iguodala off guard.
