Golden State Warriors

  1. Warriors say drafting Thompson does not mean trading Ellis. Right….

    Jun 24, 2011, 10:17 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Golden State Warriors

    It’s hard to say Golden State made a mistake when they took the best shooter in the draft. Last time I looked in the rulebook, the goal of the game was to put the round leather ball through the round metal rim, so guys who can do that from a long ways away have real…

  2. The Kings have almost definitely traded their #7 pick, and may want Monta Ellis

    Jun 23, 2011, 4:18 PM EDT

    maloofs-kings

    The “most intriguing rumor/report award” of the day so far definitely goes to DraftExpress’ Jonathan Givony, who gave us this cryptic tidbit a little earlier:  Teams calling Sacramento about the #7 pick are being told it’s already been moved. Problem is, no one knows to who, or for which player. Okay, that’s kind of a…

  3. Team president out as power shift continues for Warriors

    Jun 22, 2011, 12:38 AM EDT

    Image (1) warriors_logo_classic.jpg for post 2295

    This is not really a surprise, but the timing caught people off guard. Golden State team president Robert Rowell has left the organization, according to CSN Bay Area. Rowel, coach Don Nelson and GM Larry Riley formed the power structure under old owner Chris Cohen that has been blown up by new owners Joe Lacob…

  4. Warriors extend qualifying offer to Reggie Williams

    Jun 21, 2011, 7:44 PM EDT

    WILLIAMS_REGGIE

    From the team’s official website: The Golden State Warriors have extended a qualifying offer to guard/forward Reggie Williams, the team announced today, making him a restricted free agent. Per team policy, financial terms were not disclosed. Williams, 24, appeared in 80 games last season (nine starts), averaging 9.2 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 20.3…

  5. Warriors GM Riley: Ellis not likely to be traded

    Jun 20, 2011, 6:45 PM EDT

    ELLIS_MONTA

    Monta Ellis‘ name has been in trade rumors for the past several weeks, but according to Sports Illustrated’s Sam Amick, Warriors general manager Larry Riley said that Warrior fans shouldn’t expect an Ellis deal to happen anytime soon: Riley reiterated that he’s not shopping Ellis: “It’s very likely that he will not be traded on…

  6. Draft rumors: Thompson, Biyombo may be moving up

    Jun 18, 2011, 1:28 PM EDT

    Klay Thompson

    The draft rumors are really starting to fly. One of the big wild cards — in a draft filled with them — is Congolese big man Bismack Biyombo. As we told you in our profile of the shot-blocking big man, pretty much everyone expects the Warriors to take him at No. 11. Except that according…

  7. Report: Warriors offered Monta Ellis for Dwight Howard

    Jun 18, 2011, 11:45 AM EDT

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    Can’t blame the Warriors for trying. They are shopping Monta Ellis around (and not having great luck), they want to get more defensive, so why not go after the big fish? They did, according to a tweet from Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress. The Dwight Howard sweepstakes have begun. Golden State offered Monta Ellis, Andris Biedrins…

  8. Warriors GM says team is not shopping Monta Ellis

    Jun 15, 2011, 5:40 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis tree tattoo

    Monta Ellis‘ name has popped up in trade rumors over the last few weeks, and some have been wondering if the Warriors have been shopping Ellis, who has been putting up huge numbers over the last two seasons while leading the Warriors to little success. However, in an interview with Sports Illustrated’s Zach Lowe, Warriors…

  9. Report: Monta Ellis no fan of David Lee

    Jun 10, 2011, 2:26 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v New York Knicks

    There are a few good reasons the Warriors want to move Monta Ellis — the Stephen Curry and Ellis back court has run its course, they need to get bigger and more defensive and Ellis is good trade bait, and… Maybe Ellis and David Lee do not get along. Lee is reportedly tight with owner…

  10. Add Golden State to the list of teams that covet Nene

    Jun 8, 2011, 2:41 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    Whatever the new Collective Bargaining Agreement looks like, whatever the new pay structure is going to look like, Nene is going to get paid. He is the best big man on the market. It doesn’t take a genius to look at Dallas and see what a big man who can defend and rebound can do…

  11. Klay Thompson shooting up draft boards

    Jun 8, 2011, 12:34 PM EDT

    Klay Thompson

    Klay Thompson can shoot the rock. As well or better than anybody else in the draft. And in a draft where every player is a question mark, general managers will gravitate toward what they know works — and a guy that can shoot works in any system. Thompson was one of the best shooters at…

  12. Warriors shopping Monta Ellis to more than Sixers

    Jun 8, 2011, 11:28 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Boston Celtics

    Yesterday we told you about talks between Golden State and Philadelphia regarding a Monta Ellis for Andre Iguodala swap. It’s a long way from happening, but the two sides have talked. But Golden state has not been monogamous in shopping Ellis around, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. League sources said the Warriors also have…

  13. Mark Jackson talks about “culture change” for Warriors

    Jun 8, 2011, 10:15 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Mark Jackson moved to the other side of the microphone for 30 minutes and spoke to the media as head coach of the Golden State Warriors Tuesday. He did not once say “mamma, there goes that man.” Which was a little disappointing. What he did talk about is something that has echoed through every discussion…

  14. Why Mark Jackson as coach might work: Players love it

    Jun 7, 2011, 4:50 PM EDT

    Joe Lacob, Peter Guber

    From pundits to Warriors fans to other front offices around the league, there has been a lot of “Mark Jackson? Are you kidding me?” reactions to the hiring of the Warriors new coach. And during Game 4 of the NBA finals tonight, when Jackson says something foolish — like in Game 3 when he suggested…

  15. Jerry West: Mark Jackson had “tremendous connection” with owner

    Jun 7, 2011, 10:34 AM EDT

    mark_jackson_250_080306

    Apparently Mark Jackson just nailed his interview. Which he kind of had to, because he has no coaching resume. But Warriors consultant (and part owner) Jerry West sounded like a man very comfortable with the Warriors choice in an interview with Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News. That should not be a surprise…

  16. Mark Jackson not Warrior’s first choice, but it doesn’t matter

    Jun 7, 2011, 8:45 AM EDT

    Mark Jackson

    Plenty of people are not sold on Mark Jackson, the new coach of the Golden State Warriors. Apparently the Warriors were not either. Jackson was not the first choice, Matt Steinmetz reminds us at CSN Bay Area. When owner Joe Lacob and the Warriors started this search, experience was a key. Jackson has none. And…

  17. Report: Monta Ellis for Andre Iguodala trade discussed

    Jun 7, 2011, 2:43 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    Philadelphia and Golden State are two franchises looking to shake things up, and this trade would certainly do that. According to Ric Bucher at ESPN, Golden State and Philadelphia have discussed a Monta Ellis for Andre Iguodala trade. He adds that this deal is not close to completion but is being discussed. They could be…

  18. Mike Malone to become head assistant in Golden State, not Los Angeles

    Jun 7, 2011, 1:55 AM EDT

    Michael Malone

    The Warriors’ hiring of Mark Jackson now makes slightly more sense. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, former Cavaliers and Hornets defensive coordinator Michael Malone will be Mark Jackson’s lead assistant in Golden State. Mike Brown, who Malone coached under before, wanted Malone on his staff, but the Warriors’ new ownership would not be…

  19. Warriors hire Mark Jackson as head coach

    Jun 6, 2011, 9:42 PM EDT

    Mark Jackson Popcorn

    The Golden State Warriors have announced that they have hired former player and current television analyst Mark Jackson as their head coach. The 46-year old Jackson had a long and distinguished career in the NBA as a player, winning the Rookie of the Year award in 1988 and being named an All-Star in 1989. He…

  20. Report: Mark Jackson is the frontrunner for Golden State

    Jun 6, 2011, 2:37 PM EDT

    mark_jackson_250_080306

    People who have met with new Warriors owner Joe Lacob have described him as an out of the box thinker. Which is pretty much a cliché statement in and of itself at this point, but we’ll go with it. Because it sounds like he is close to doing something very out of the box, according…

  21. Is Golden State thinking about trading Monta Ellis?

    Jun 1, 2011, 1:14 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Golden State Warriors

    Let’s just start this out with the needed disclaimer — this all starts because of speculation from a newspaper columnist, an idea that got picked up and ran with all over the Web Wednesday morning. (Tell me again how bloggers start all the rumors?) Understand it all started with a guess that may be off…

  22. Report: Mark Jackson among Warriors coaching finalists

    May 30, 2011, 12:27 PM EDT

    mark_jackson_250_080306

    Would you hire a man who says “Mamma, there goes that man” as your head coach? A guy who says “give me better offense any day” every game? The Golden State Warriors are apparently considering it. Former player and current ESPN/ABC analyst Mark Jackson is a finalist for the Warriors head coaching job, according to…

  23. Stephen Curry has surgery on right ankle

    May 26, 2011, 8:17 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry

    Stephen Curry was battling ankle issues at the end of the season. And those can linger — once the ligaments stretch out in an ankle they can take a long time to get right and it’s easy to aggravate the injury. So Curry had surgery to tighten up his ankle ligaments, according to Matt Steinmetz…

  24. New Warrior owners offer fans a contract

    May 24, 2011, 7:10 PM EDT

    Warriors Contract

    The Golden State Warriors are under new management, and the new ownership team is looking to make a good impression with fans as quickly as possible. They recently sent out a contract to potential season-ticket holders, which makes the following promises: 1. The Warriors will make the 2012 playoffs. If they do not, ticket prices…

  25. Why yes, Monta Ellis did cover his torso with a tattoo of a tree

    May 24, 2011, 6:24 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis tree tattoo

    There it is, in all of its glory. Let it never be said that Monta Ellis doesn’t love his family, nature, and getting tattoos. This is certainly a head-turner of a tattoo, but I think the most ridiculous Golden State off-season torso tattoo in recent memory is still Stephen Jackson’s hands holding a gun in…
