Richard Jefferson

  1. If Doc is out, who is in for Celtics? Maybe Del Negro, Frank

    Jun 17, 2013, 1:43 PM EDT

    Vinny Del Negro

    There is once again momentum to the idea that Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett (then later likely Paul Pierce) are headed to the Clippers. It may or may not happen, but a smart GM like Danny Ainge has to start planning for any eventuality. So, if Doc Rivers is gone from the bench in Boston,…

  2. As expected, Richard Jefferson picks up $11 million option

    May 29, 2013, 12:28 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors' Jefferson gets tangled up with Denver Nuggets' Brewer during their NBA Western Conference quarter-final basketball playoff in Denver

    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,…

  3. Andris Biedrins to exercise player option, return to Warriors next season

    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…

  4. Dwight Howard reportedly adds Hawks and Warriors to his free agent list

    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. It’s been previously reported that Howard is most intrigued by the Houston Rockets, thanks in no small part to a young star already in place there in the form…

  5. Spurs have changed a lot since 2011 loss to Grizzlies

    May 19, 2013, 7:11 PM EDT

    Kawhi Leonard, Gregg Popovich, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Boris Diaw, Tim Duncan

    When the Spurs started the 2010-11 season with a 17-3 record – on their way to a conference-best 61-21 finish – Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated profiled a team that no longer resembled previous San Antonio squads. Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili had played together under Gregg Popovich since the 2002-03 season, and…

  6. Tim Duncan shoves Richard Jefferson, then stares him down (VIDEO)

    May 15, 2013, 8:18 PM EDT

    tim duncan richard jefferson spurs

    In a rare show of an emotion other than being incredulous at every foul call that has ever gone against him, Tim Duncan gave Richard Jefferson a solid shove to claim the courtside traction pad at some point during Game 5, and then sat on the scorer’s table to stare him down afterward. This probably…

  7. Jason Collins’ road from journeyman to household name

    Apr 29, 2013, 3:17 PM EDT

    FILE:  NBA Player Jason Collins Comes Out As Gay

    Jason Collins was the kind of player NBA people like on their team, but not a guy who was a household name. Until now. Collins — a 12-year NBA veteran — came out as gay on Monday. He’s the first active major American team sport athlete to come out as gay. At this point his…

  8. Jason Collins’ coming out as gay shouldn’t affect his free agency

    Apr 29, 2013, 2:07 PM EDT

    File photo of Washington Wizards' Jason Collins going to the basket against Chicago Bulls' Taj Gibson during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Chicago, Illinois

    When I read Jason Collins’ story in Sport Illustrated coming out as gay, my first thought was: good. This is an exciting moment, a historic declaration by Collins, who is tearing down the homophobia that once permeated through American team sports. Much later, my another thought kicked in: dread. As Collins notes in his story,…

  9. Warriors hang on to beat Mavericks in battle of shorthanded teams

    Feb 1, 2013, 2:07 AM EDT

    David Lee, Andrew Bogut

    The second half of the TNT doubleheader on Thursday lost some of its luster before the game even started, with both Stephen Curry of the Warriors and Dirk Nowitzki of the Mavericks being ruled out due to injury. But the game turned out to be exciting nonetheless, as others stepped up on both sides to…

  11. Richard Jefferson throws down the reverse dunk against Hornets (VIDEO)

    Jan 20, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Richard Jefferson, Lamar Odom

    Richard Jefferson has had a hard time getting on the court for the Warriors this season, but with more plays like this one, the team may be inclined to try to find him some additional opportunities. Early in the second quarter of the Warriors win over the Hornets on Saturday, Jefferson received the ball in…

  12. Klay Thompson plans to shoot way out of slump. Should he do it off bench?

    Nov 21, 2012, 1:13 PM EDT

    Klay Thompson

    The question isn’t “can Klay Thompson shoot?” The guy came into the league a gunner and hit 41.4 percent from three as a rookie. But in a larger role this season — starting, more minutes, more touches — he can’t find his touch. He’s shooting just 33.3 percent from three (and averaging seven shots from…

  13. NBA season preview: Golden State Warriors

    Oct 18, 2012, 5:36 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry, David Lee, Andrew Bogut

    Last Season: The Warriors hope that last season was one where the decisions the franchise made put the team in position to compete for years to come — starting now. First year head coach Mark Jackson didn’t have much to work with, and Stephen Curry‘s ankle problems that allowed him to play only 26 games…

  14. The Warriors have a good problem at small forward

    Oct 7, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Harrison Barnes

    The Warriors, when the draft was approaching, were desperate for small forward help. They wanted an experienced player to “make the” at the position. They couldn’t find a star upgrade by trading the draft pick, so they picked up  Harrison Barnes. They still don’t have that star, but as it turns out, they have enough…

  15. If Harrison Barnes wants minutes, he’s got to bury his looks

    Sep 5, 2012, 1:26 AM EDT

    Harrison Barnes

    Harrison Barnes, the rookie out of North Carolina, was up and down at NBA Summer League. Against the Lakers he was aggressive, attacking the rim on his way to 23 points on 8-of-13 shooting. He showed a real chemistry with Klay Thompson. But then the next night Barnes would come out passive and the game…

  17. Mark Jackson has good players in Golden State now, can he lead them to wins?

    Aug 2, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Mark Jackson Warriors

    Last season, it wouldn’t have mattered if Golden State brought in John Wooden circa 1968 to coach the team — they didn’t have enough talent on the roster to win a lot of games. And what talent they did have kept getting injured. Mark Jackson kind of had a free pass to learn how to…

  18. As expected, Warriors ink deal with Brandon Rush

    Jul 31, 2012, 2:06 PM EDT

    Brandon Rush, Arron Afflalo

    We told you this was coming, consider this the formal notification it is here. The Warriors have reached a two-year, $8 million deal for Brandon Rush to remain with the team, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports and the NBC Sports Network. Rush averaged 9.8 points per game for Golden State last year and gives…

  19. The Inbounds: The Warriors become tank-proof

    Jul 31, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Harrison Barnes

    The Warriors won’t be able to tank next year if they try. Well, OK, if they try they will. But it’s going to be a lot harder, because all of a sudden, their ten-man rotation isn’t just decent, it’s downright pretty good. Watching the Warriors’ moves over the past year has been an exercise in…

  20. Warriors’ latest small forward star target: Luol Deng

    Jun 23, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Deng goes to the basket against the Miami Heat during second half of their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    Andre Iguodala. Danny Granger. Rudy Gay. The Warriors have been chasing a small forward for weeks trying to get a hold on an All-Star upgrade at that position. You can recognize what they’re going for. Stephen Curry runs the show. The star small forward anchors the perimeter defense, Andrew Bogut handles the defensive load down…

    Bob Boozer, a member of the United States 1960 Olympic gold medal team and former NBA All-Star has died due to a brain aneurysm at the age of 75. Boozer was an 11-year NBA player after being the No. 1 overall pick by the Cincinnati Royals after his two All-American years at Kansas State. Over…

  22. Five reasons these are not last year’s Spurs, they are contenders

    Apr 26, 2012, 6:40 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker

    Last season, the Spurs won 61 games, went into the playoffs as the top seed thought of as contenders, then got unceremoniously bounced in the first round because they could not handle the big, athletic front line of the Memphis Grizzlies. This season, the Spurs are again entering the playoffs as the top seed and…

  23. Baseline to Baseline recaps: George comes up big for Pacers

    Mar 23, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Paul George, Danny Granger

    What you missed while being thankful you’re not allergic to water…. Hornets 97, Clippers 90: The New Orleans Arena felt especially warm, mostly because of the heat emanating from Vinny Del Negro’s seat. The Clippers lost their third in a row to a feisty Hornets team in our game of the night. Celtics 100, Bucks…

  24. Weekend Observations: 25 notes about the trade deadline

    Mar 18, 2012, 11:30 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Los Angeles Lakers

    We’re thee days past the trade deadline. Some players have already landed and played a game with their new teams, some haven’t even arrived in their new destinations (does Hasheem Thabeet really have that busy of a calendar?). But we’re starting to recover from the shock of a still-nuts-if-quieter-than-last-year deadline that saw two coaches let go…

  25. The Warriors aren’t exactly ‘all-in’ with Stephen Curry, would have traded him for Bogut if necessary

    Mar 17, 2012, 10:37 AM EDT

    stephen curry

    The Warriors really wanted Andrew Bogut. You can argue about whether they should have wanted the 27-year-old injured center who has said his elbow will never recover fully from the horrific fall it suffered and who is currently out with an ankle fracture. But for the Warriors, the trade this past week of Monta Ellis and…
