    Jul 20, 2010, 10:17 AM EDT

    David Lee isn’t even a Knick anymore and he is still the best representative of that organization. Which says plenty.

    Jul 17, 2010, 4:48 PM EDT

    There are a lot of questions for Joseph A. Lacob, the guy taking the reins as the new owner of the Golden State Warriors. Fortunately for him, he doesn’t have to answer the hard ones — about house cleaning in the front office, for example — until he formally gets control of the team in…

  5. Spoelstra has no plans to go to Golden State

    Jul 16, 2010, 6:16 PM EDT

    Unsurprisingly, Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra does not plan to give up the chance to coach LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh in Miami next season. Spoelstra’s father is involved with the ownership group than recently purchased the Golden State Warriors, but Spoelstra told our own Ira Winderman that his father has no…

  7. Don Nelson wants to coach Warriors for one more season. Fans shudder.

    Jul 16, 2010, 10:27 AM EDT

    Warriors fans hope that a new owner means a new direction for the team.

I…

  8. Warriors are finally sold, but not to Larry Ellison

    Jul 15, 2010, 4:05 PM EDT

    UPDATE 4:05 pm: Tim Kawakam of the San Jose Mercury News got this statement from Larry Ellison: “Although I was the highest bidder, Chris Cohan decided to sell to someone else.” Could still be some fireworks to come. Also, look for Lacob to be the active owner, the guy running the team.2:15 pm: According to…

  9. What now for the Warriors?

    Jul 15, 2010, 2:33 PM EDT

    It’s a new day for Golden State. Nothing was going to change for the struggling franchise until the ownership changed. Now that’s done — Joseph Lacob and Peter Guber are out in front of a group that has agreed to terms to buy team. They paid a record $450 million and that was enough to…

  10. Golden State down to two bidders for franchise, ownership change can't happen soon enough

    Jul 12, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    Anthony Morrow is being allowed to walk to New Jersey. Anthony Randolph will not be back next year, shipped out as part of a deal for the much more expensive David Lee (who had said he was excited by playing with Morrow, sorry man). It’s hard to understand exactly what the grand plan is of…

  11. John Wall shows his world of potential, shows he is still 19 in first Summer League game

    Jul 11, 2010, 11:34 PM EDT

    John Wall is lightning quick. You think you know that watching his televised games while at Kentucky, but until you see him in person you don’t realize just how quick. It’s impressive, bordering on insane. He flashed that speed in his first ever Summer League game. Plus he showed his great length, good defensive instincts,…

  12. Dorell Wright leaving Miami for Golden State

    Jul 11, 2010, 12:32 PM EDT

    Not everybody wants to play in Miami right now. The Heat’s Dorell Wright is very close to leaving South Beach and signing a new deal with Golden State, a three-year contract worth more than $10 million, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

    Jul 9, 2010, 2:09 AM EDT

    David Lee is crossing country for some big checks, he has been traded to Golden State David Lee is going to Golden State — and that is good for him in that he will get paid. He agreed to a sign-and-trade deal that nets him $80 million over six years, shipping him to Golden State…

  14. Knicks, Warriors close to an Anthony Randolph, David Lee swap

    Jul 7, 2010, 10:53 PM EDT

    There were questions about how David Lee fit into the seven-seconds-or-less New York Knicks offense last season. So now he could end up with Golden State — one of the few teams to play even faster. The Knicks and Warriors are close to a deal that would sign-and-trade David Lee to the West coast and…

  15. Count the Warriors among those looking to nab David Lee

    Jul 5, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    The jury’s still out on exactly what kind of salary David Lee can command this off-season. Yet with Rudy Gay and Joe Johnson topping out on their earning potential, it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to see some team give Lee a max deal. Hooray for the Summer of 2010, where basketball paupers…

  16. Three-way trade rumored for Al Jefferson, Monta Ellis, and David Lee

    Jul 4, 2010, 3:01 PM EDT

    Here’s a juicy one. NY Post reports that there’s a trade being discussed that would send Al Jefferson to the Warriors, Monta Ellis to the Knicks, and David Lee to the Timberwolves. Take a second to get your brain around that. What we’re really looking at if this rumor has any weight (and that’s a…

  17. Anthony Morrow: Dead-eye shooter, post-apocalyptic Warrior, coveted free agent

    Jul 1, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    The Warriors have long been something of a basketball wasteland; even if it’s entertaining to watch Monta Ellis, Stephen Curry and the like run amok in Don Nelson’s post-apocalyptic world, all of their wins are empty, and their losses sobering reminders of where they are and where they’ll never go. So naturally, as basketball fans,…

  18. Gay, Watson, Morrow latest to gets qualifying offers

    Jun 30, 2010, 6:52 PM EDT

    Qualifying offers keep rolling in as the deadline approaches. Not surprises, but offers as teams make sure they have a chance to hang on to the players they like. The offers make players restricted free agents, meaning the team can match any offers that come in. For Memphis, that means extending a qualifying offer Rudy…

  19. Not everyone is opting out: Stojakovic and Radmanovic staying in their bloated deals

    Jun 28, 2010, 11:23 PM EDT

    It only seems like everyone is opting out of their contracts right now. There are some guys out there riding the gravy train of bad general manager decisions, guys who are perfectly happy to keep their current bloated deals for next season. Meet Peja Stojakovic and Vladimir Radmanovic. Stojakovic is owed $15.3 million next season…

  20. What's in a draft bust?

    Jun 25, 2010, 1:20 PM EDT

    Among the 2010 draft class, there will be stars. There will be successful role players with long, fruitful careers. There will be early risers, late bloomers, movers, shakers, and minimum salary makers. And of course, there will be the busts. The bust is perhaps the oddest of all draft day phenomena. It’s essentially a product…

  21. Corey Maggette and Chris Douglas-Roberts aren't perfect, but could be just what the Bucks need

    Jun 23, 2010, 12:02 PM EDT

    It’s been said that if given the right touches and opportunity, most NBA players can be transformed in 20-point scorers. Move such a claim within the limits of reason however (come on, is any team really going to give Jarron Collins 35 shots a night to hit that mark?), and the pool of players in…

  22. Larry Riley denies that he's shopping Anthony Randolph

    Jun 19, 2010, 12:42 PM EDT

    Anthony Randolph has been rumored to be on the Warriors’ trading block from pretty much the very second he arrived in Oakland. Even if the jury’s still out on whether or not an actualized Randolph is a realistic possibility, his combination of athleticism and skills would make him an appealing prospect to just about any…

  23. Don Nelson staying in Maui, not involved in Warriors draft preparation

    Jun 8, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    Don Nelson is in Maui right now. For the record, I wish I were in Maui right now. I’d be a much better blogger in Maui. Or at least I’d have the best tan of any NBA blogger. Which really is a pretty easy honor to achieve. But I am not the coach of an…

  24. Larry Ellison combines bid with existing Warrior minority owners to form super majority

    Jun 6, 2010, 1:14 AM EDT

    Larry Ellison — the richest man bidding on the Warriors, the man who would be the richest owner in basketball, the man who could write the biggest check tomorrow — may win the Warriors by bringing in partners. Specifically, existing partners in the team. A group of investors who currently own 20 percent of the…

  25. Report: Timberwolves and Warriors discuss Anthony Randolph trade

    Jun 4, 2010, 8:58 AM EDT

    Anthony Randolph is young and has a world of talent and potential. That doesn’t mean Don Nelson is going to play him unless he has to, but the talent is there. Other teams recognize that talent and would like to have it. Like the Timberwolves, who have talked to Golden State about an Anthony Randolph…
