Warriors PF/C Marreese Speights will appear in court for a DUI arraignment on September 16.
The court date shouldn't conflict with any of Speights' professional obligations, but he's likely to face a short suspension once the legal process concludes. P.J. Tucker was recently suspended three games for his "super extreme" DUI arrest, but a two-game suspension is typical. Aug 13 - 1:12 PM

Marreese Speights was arrested for driving under the influence early Tuesday morning.

Speights was driving home from his 27th birthday party and spent the night in jail after blowing a .103 and .106 on two different Breathalyzer tests. Speights will enter the second year of a three-year contract with the Warriors after averaging 6.4 points and 3.7 boards during his first season with the team, but will likely face a suspension during the 2014-15 season if found guilty.

There was reportedly a hallway altercation following Saturday's Game 7 loss to the Clippers, though no punches were thrown.

The Warriors reportedly heard what they thought was a Clippers assistant coach yelling, "It's a little quiet in there," several times outside their locker room. Stephen Curry and Steve Blake were the first to emerge from their locker room to confront some Clippers ball boys. STAPLES Center security, and the LAPD eventually intervened as Marreese Speights and Glen Davis were yelling at each other, and that sums up the situation. It's unlikely that their will be any punishment from the league, and this sort of thing isn't exactly surprising given the intensity of the series and the two teams general dislike for each other. Move along people, nothing to see here.
May 4 - 10:03 AM

Marreese Speights scored nine points on 4-of-13 shooting with seven rebounds and one block in 16 minutes off the bench on Monday against the Wolves.

Andrew Bogut is out indefinitely and Jermaine O'Neal (10 points, four boards, one steal) is a candidate to be held out of Wednesday's game. That makes Speights a likely target to carry the load down low, and he has a history of big games when he's allowed to shoot at will. Hilton Armstrong could also take over O'Neal's lower-minute role.
Apr 15 - 1:54 AM

Marreese Speights took advantage of the Lakers on Friday, scoring 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting with eight rebounds and one steal in 22 minutes.

The Lakers don't even try to play defense so owners should keep that in mind when assessing Speights going forward. The Warriors are basically locked into the No. 6 seed so they may rest some of their key big men down the stretch, and in that case Speights would be worth a look.
Apr 12 - 2:42 AM

Marreese Speights averaged 17.0 points in the Warriors previous two games, but he finished Sunday's easy win with eight points and six rebounds in 16 minutes.

Andrew Bogut's return was the direct cause of Speights' quiet game, and anyone who picked him up for temporary value should promptly return him to the waiver wire.
Apr 6 - 11:39 PM

Marreese Speights scored 22 points on 10-of-16 shooting with nine rebounds and one steal in 30 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

Speights saw some extra minutes due to garbage time and it's unknown how long David Lee and Andrew Bogut will be out. Owners should be looking at a speculative spot play with skepticism. The same goes for Jordan Crawford, who added 16 points on 6-of-18 shooting with three treys, two boards, two assists and one steal in 34 minutes.
Apr 3 - 1:24 AM

Marreese Speights started at PF on Sunday but he played only 19 minutes to finish with four points, eight rebounds and one block.

David Lee's hamstring injury has thrust Speights into a bigger role, and it's unclear whether Lee will be ready for Tuesday's game in Dallas. Even if Lee sits out, however, Speights' upside is limited by the Warriors' ability to go small with Draymond Green and Harrison Barnes in the frontcourt.
Mar 30 - 11:57 PM

Marreese Speights started in place of David Lee on Friday with 15 points, eight boards, one block and two fouls in 26 minutes.

He had some success against his former and it's a little unusual for big men to do well against the Grizzlies. Lee (hamstring) is only day-to-day, so Speights is likely just a short-term add for Sunday's game against the Knicks at best.
Mar 29 - 5:44 AM

Marreese Speights came off the bench for 13 points, eight rebounds, a steal and a block on 5-of-10 shooting in 23 minutes on Tuesday.

Andrew Bogut was out, but could return from his ankle injury on Thursday, while Jermaine O'Neal will likely sit for a second time in that one. Speights could do something against the Bucks, but if Bogut plays, all bets are off.
Mar 19 - 2:54 AM

Marreese Speights scored a career-high 32 points in Monday's ridiculous win over the Sixers, hitting 12-of-15 shots (1-of-2 3PTs, 7-of-8 FTs) with eight rebounds and three blocks in 26 minutes off the bench.

Speights hasn't been blurbed since December 18 and it took the combination of Andrew Bogut and Jermaine O'Neal's injuries, the Sixers mailing in their season and Speights timing his once-per-season explosion perfectly. If the same guys miss time he might be worth a look for spot-action in the Warriors' next game on Wednesday against the Heat. Otherwise, take a picture of this because it's not happening again.
Feb 11 - 1:03 AM

Marreese Speights came off the bench for 12 points and six rebounds in just 18 minutes on Tuesday.

He had 16 points and nine boards on Friday, but outside of those two games, he hasn't done enough to even be on the fantasy radar. However, if he keeps playing like this and posts another couple solid lines to finish out the week, he will grab our attention. On Sunday, he sandwiched a line of five points and three rebounds between the good games, which speaks to our point.
Wed, Dec 18, 2013 01:46:00 AM

Marreese Speights played just 16 minutes, but hit 7-of-14 shots on his way to season highs of 16 points and nine rebounds.

Amazingly, eight of his rebounds were offensive, and while he was instrumental in keeping the Dubs alive tonight, it's hard to see him doing this again anytime soon. Ignore him for now.

The Warriors have agreed on a three-year deal with free agent Marreese Speights.

Speights had a mostly disappointing season with the Cavs last year but it's also possible that his style didn't work with known disciplinarian Byron Scott. In Golden State he'll be a backup rotational big playing behind David Lee and Andrew Bogut.
Mon, Jul 8, 2013 07:17:00 PM

Marreese Speights has declined his $4.5 million player option with the Cavs and will become a free agent.

He'll be 26 in August, so Speights is probably thinking that this will be his last chance to sign a nice multiple-year deal. It makes even more sense with the Cavs drafting Anthony Bennett. Although, he had a quiet season with the Cavs, failing to play more than 22 minutes per game in any month while scoring 8.3 points per game on 44.5 percent shooting over the course of the season. He'll likely be a bench big with another team and might have a tough time getting a deal close to $4.5 million per year.
