  1. Maybe we haven’t seen the last of Don Nelson after all

    Don Nelson’s tenure as head coach of the Golden State Warriors was marked by one shining moment and countless infuriating ones. Between Nelson’s influence on personnel decisions, his rotations, his handling of players, and the general quagmire that plagued the Warriors organization as a whole, few things seemed to go right in the Bay. Moving…

  2. Warriors name starting five. That didn’t take long.

    Sep 30, 2010, 11:04 AM EDT

    Keith Smart knows what he wants from the Warriors. And he knows who he wants to do it. Two days into training camp Smart named his starting five according to Matt Steinmetz of Comcast Bay Area: Stephen Curry, Monta Ellis, Dorell Wright, David Lee and Andris Biedrins. No real surprises on that list. In fact…

  3. Warriors pick up option year on Stephen Curry deal. As expected.

    Stephen Curry is in the playing-like-an-All-Star-but-getting-paid-like-a-rookie part of his career. As expected, the Warriors announced they picked up the third season team option on Curry that follows his rookie season, as reported by Marc Spears of Yahoo. Curry will make $2.9 million this season, $3.1 million in his third season. Next year the Warriors will…

  4. The Warriors are going to play defense this season. For a change.

    Sep 26, 2010, 12:29 PM EDT

    Last season we seemed never to type “Warriors” and “defense” in the same sentence, unless the words “not playing any” were included. Things are different now. Brand new coach Keith Smart has come into Warriors camp preaching defense. It’s part of the big changes with the Warriors — roster changes, owner changes, logo changes and…

  5. Writing had been on wall for Don Nelson for months

    Sep 24, 2010, 10:10 AM EDT

    Don Nelson is a revolutionary coach. Whatever you think of how it ended, the man was a game changer. He helped make it okay for Dirk Nowitzki to be a power forward on the wing. You don’t become the all-time winningest coach in NBA history on a fluke. He had a career — from playing…

  6. Report: Warriors to replace Don Nelson as head coach

    Sep 23, 2010, 8:06 PM EDT

    According to ESPN.com’s Marc Stein, the Warriors are on the verge of replacing current head coach Don Nelson with current assistant coach Keith Smart.  The incoming co-owner of the Warriors, Joe Lacob, told the San Jose Mercury News’ Tim Kawakami that this officially will happen Monday (at Warriors media day). “You’ll have clarity on Monday,”…

  7. Utah Jazz have "issue" with Kyrylo Fesenko

    Sep 21, 2010, 10:46 AM EDT

    The Utah Jazz are a little tired of waiting. They have had the $1.1 million qualifying offer for Kyrylo Fesenko on the table for more than two months. Fesenko hasn’t signed it, trying to get another team — Houston and Cleveland have had serious talks — to make a better, longer-term offer. Because the Jazz…

  8. Are the Warriors better off with Keith Smart?

    Sep 18, 2010, 9:42 AM EDT

    The tea leaves read “Nellie is done.” And though Nelson long and distinguished career is certainly worth respecting, you can still hear the collective sigh of relief, followed by the sharp intake of anticipation from Warriors fans. A fresh start. A new beginning. A change in the winds. Or, you know, not really any of…

  9. Monta Ellis grows up. And Curry, he's sorry about all that stuff last season.

    Sep 17, 2010, 10:21 AM EDT

    Things are changing in Golden State — from the new owners coming in next month to the new team logo. Soon enough there will be changes in styles of play and how the team is run. Monta Ellis is changing, too. He’s maturing. That comes off in a fantastic bit of reporting and writing by…

  10. Report: Signals are Warriors will remove Don Nelson, promote Keith Smart

    Sep 15, 2010, 10:18 AM EDT

    If one thing would endear the new Warriors owner Joe Lacob to Bay Area fans it would be to remove Don Nelson the day he gets control of the franchise. That may be what happens, according to Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News. The signals are strong: If the timing is right and…

  11. Want to go to Warriors Media Day? Oh, sorry, now called Tweedia Day.

    Sep 15, 2010, 8:56 AM EDT

    Some lucky fan is going to be able to watch live and in person as David Lee does some television promotion bits. Thrilling stuff, that is. The Golden State Warriors are looking for some social media studs to be the fans eyes and ears at media day Sept. 27. To tell the public what is…

  12. Lou Amundson reaches deal with Golden State Warriors

    Sep 13, 2010, 11:02 AM EDT

    They may not have a classic big man, but the Golden State Warriors have an athletic and interesting front line. One that just got more interesting with news that Lou Amundson has reached a deal with the Warriors, a two year deal worth just less than $5 million, with the second year a player option…

  13. Some team is about to get a steal with Louis Amundson

    Sep 8, 2010, 10:27 AM EDT

    What do you want out of your role players? Hustle. Energy every night. Guys willing to do the little things to win. Guys who sacrifice themselves and have surprisingly solid games. So why is Louis Amundson still on the market again? He did all those things for the Suns last season, showing he can be…

  14. Golden State filling out the roster with Rodney Carney, Jeff Adrien

    Sep 8, 2010, 9:14 AM EDT

    Looking for some depth at the forward spot, Golden State is expected to sign Rodney Carney today, and will bring Jeff Adrien into camp, according to reports. Carney was an expected signing, the Warriors have been in talks with him for weeks. Ink will hit paper on a deal today, according to the San Francisco…

  15. Report: Warriors may go with Rodney Carney as backup

    Sep 2, 2010, 3:26 PM EDT

    As it is the “guys who fill out the end of the bench” signings time of the year, we have one report for you. Rodney Carney is talking to and nearing contract with the Golden State Warriors, according to a tweet from NBA.com’s Scott Howard Cooper. Carney was in Philadelphia last season playing 12 minutes…

  16. Ujiri will meet with Melo to try and soothe the waters

    Aug 28, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    Masai Ujiri and Dell Demps should get together and have a beer when the Nuggets and Hornets meet next season, because they’ve both been initiated into fire. Demps had to meet with Chris Paul within days of being hired by the Hornets, to try and convince him to chill out on his trade demands. Now…

  17. Lou Amundson will finally find a home this week

    Aug 24, 2010, 1:40 PM EDT

    It’s still a bit curious that Lou Amundson, a nice complementary big who rebounds, hustles, and defends, is a free agent, but he should find a new team pretty soon. From Michael Falgoust of USA Today: Forward Lou Amundson, the odd man out in the Phoenix Suns’ offseason shuffle, is expected to sign this week…

  18. Lou Amundson is done in Phoenix, but the Hornets, Warriors, and Pacers are knocking on his door

    Aug 18, 2010, 12:36 PM EDT

    Louis Amundson was the most understated of Phoenix’s tremendously successful reserve unit last season. Leandro Barbosa was the established veteran scorer, and could catch lightning in a bottle. Goran Dragic was the young up-and-comer, officially hosting his coming out party on the Spurs’ home court during the first round of the playoffs. Channing Frye was…

  19. Adonal Foyle retires, but he has a long journey ahead

    Aug 17, 2010, 8:45 AM EDT

    According to Brian Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel, Adonal Foyle has decided to retire. That’s not “Magic center Adonal Foyle,” or “twelve-year veteran Adonal Foyle,” even if he happens to be both of those things. Rather, the NBA’s most renowned renaissance man, one of its most inquisitive minds, and one if its most philanthropic individuals…

  20. Pistons about to sell for less than Warriors

    Aug 16, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    Last December, Forbes estimated the value of the Golden State Warriors at $315 million, yet when the team hit the open market, it sold for a record $450 million (although that deal has yet to be finalized). So with the Detroit Pistons valued at $479 million, they should sell for… Nope. They are not going…

  21. The Flip Side: Anthony Morrow's life after Golden State

    Aug 12, 2010, 11:26 AM EDT

    Yesterday’s four-way trade saw just about every team involved walk away a winner. However, the effects of that trade are far more specific than just saying “This team got better,” or “This team accomplished its goals.” In The Flip Side, we’ll look at one player from each of the four teams — the Nets, the…

  22. New Warriors owner may keep Don Nelson for a "test drive"

    Aug 10, 2010, 1:27 PM EDT

    Don Nelson sits in Maui, collecting the $6 million he is owed, and waiting for a phone call from Warriors incoming owner Joe Lacob. And more and more, it seems like that call may say, “Hey, come on back and coach the team a little longer.” That’s what the San Jose Mercury News columnist Tim…

  23. Andris Biedrins not showing the love to Golden State this summer

    Aug 9, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    This summer, Andris Biedrins isn’t working out with the Warriors. He went off on his own. And after a year where his coach generally jerked him around then called him on his (admittedly terrible) free throw shooting, a year where he thinks the team doctors may not have been forthcoming about his injury, it’s kind…

  24. Don Nelson waits on a call from Golden State

    Aug 6, 2010, 8:40 AM EDT

    One does not win more games than any other NBA coach in history if one is not smart. Don Nelson is smart, he knows what is happening with Golden State. He knows there is new ownership, he knows there are plans to let him go. So he is not coming back to the Bay Area…
