JaVale McGee is reportedly "not happy" that the Warriors used their entire mid-level exception to sign Nick Young.

McGee played for the minimum with the Dubs last season, but he believes that he showed he's deserving of an increased role and a higher annual salary based on his play during the 2016-17 campaign, and that's what he's looking for on the open market. Regardless of where McGee winds up, it's unlikely he'll be on the floor enough to make a difference in fantasy hoops.

Kevon Looney scored 11 points with 11 rebounds, one block, two steals and one turnover in 27 minutes against the Clippers on Friday.

He really needed a good game today and he may have turned in his best one in Las Vegas this year. In this win, Looney grabbed four offensive boards, which is probably the best part of his game. Despite being a first-round pick in 2015, Looney's roster spot may not be safe in October.

Dylan Ennis came off the bench for 35 points against the Clippers on Friday, adding seven rebounds, two assists, three steals, no turnovers and eight 3-pointers in just 28 minutes.

This is his very first Rotoworld blurb and his career high at Oregon was 22 points, so needless to say this came out of nowhere. Ennis was undrafted this year and he clearly benefitted from Patrick McCaw not playing today. He scored a whopping 20 points in the second quarter and had multiple heat-check threes go in, so it was a treat to watch in this consolation game. While he did get some "MVP" chants at Thomas & Mack Center, Ennis probably isn't going to threaten Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry.

Jordan Bell and Patrick McCaw will not play against the Clippers on Friday.

It was obvious McCaw wasn't going to play in the consolation bracket, but Bell getting a day off is interesting. It looks like Bell is likely ahead of both Kevon Looney and Damian Jones, so this does also suggest Looney's roster spot isn't exactly solidified. The Warriors are going to be strapped on cap space for years, so crushing in the second round would be huge. They got a good one in McCaw and Bell looks like a steal, as well.
Jul 14 - 6:36 PM

Jordan Bell scored four points with six rebounds, three steals and two blocks in 19 minutes against the Celtics on Thursday.

It wasn't a 5x5 like Tuesday, but Bell has a knack for producing the hustle stats. The No. 38 has played mostly power forward with the Vegas club, but it's possible he gets a look as a backup five despite being slightly undersized at 6'9". He's been one of the most impressive second-round picks in Las Vegas.
Jul 13 - 7:55 PM

Kevon Looney scored two points with three rebounds and one assist in 10 minutes against the Celtics on Thursday.

He didn't really do much to show he's capable of producing for the big club. Looney did have some stretches as a plus rebounder last year and he can shoot it, but he hasn't really added anything to his repertoire since he was drafted in 2015. The Warriors may have other ideas for Looney's roster spot.
Jul 13 - 7:50 PM

Jordan Bell hauled in 16 rebounds while adding three blocks, one steal and six points on 3-of-5 shooting during Wednesday's exhibition.

Bell did turn the ball over six times, with a few glaring errors, but that's what Summer League is for. He already looks like money well spent on draft day, when Golden State paid a whopping $3.5 million for his rights. Whether he'll earn minutes this season is questionable, but at worst he's a talented defender the Warriors can develop in the G-League.
Jul 12 - 8:35 PM

Pat McCaw continued his solid play at Summer League with a game-high 26 points, five assists, four rebounds and one steal during Wednesday's 77-69 win vs. the Wolves.

McCaw came in averaging a steady 18.0 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists in Vegas. He was shooting just 40.0 percent from the field in that span, but turned it around tonight by making 10-of-16 FGs, two 3-pointers, and 4-of-5 FTs. He's been a cut above the competition most nights. Click the link below for one of his best highlights.
Jul 12 - 8:35 PM

Jordan Bell stuffed the stat sheet in Tuesday's double-overtime loss to the Wolves, finishing with five points, 11 rebounds, five assists, five steals and six blocks in 32 minutes.

Wow! Even Draymond Green would be proud of this line. Bell was the 38th pick in the draft and was purchased from the Bulls for $3.5 million, but the Warriors have an eye for talent and may have another gem on their hands. If there's one thing the Warriors could use, it's interior defense and Bell proved that he can provide that. He's not a lock to be in the rotation on opening night, but this line should raise some eyebrows in fantasy circles.
Jul 11 - 11:11 PM

Kevon Looney had an allergic reaction to something on Monday and will be held out of Tuesday's Summer League game.

For now, we'll consider Looney day-to-day. The Warriors were able to bring back David West and Zaza Pachulia, so Looney isn't projected to be in the rotation on opening night.
Jul 11 - 8:58 PM

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said he expects Patrick McCaw to show significant improvement next season.

"You can see the confidence he’s playing with right now in summer league," said Kerr. "I think the biggest jump you ever make in your career is between Year 1 and 2. Year 1 you realize you can play in this league. Now he’s realizing he can be really good in this league. That’s how he’s playing." Kerr also stated that because the Warriors plan to limit the minutes of their starters next season, he'll lean more on his bench. With Nick Young now in the mix, McCaw will have to earn his playing time, but the opportunity is there.
Jul 11 - 10:44 AM

Coach Steve Kerr said that the Warriors would "love" to re-sign JaVale McGee.

McGee, an unrestricted free agent, reportedly met with the Clippers and Kings last week but has yet to sign a new deal. He played well in spot minutes for Golden State last season and filled in admirably when Zaza Pachulia was injured. "We all want him back," said Kerr. "But we’ll see how all that goes. He’s a free agent, he’s exploring his options. He was great for us last year, such a good teammate, high energy. But we’ll see."
Jul 11 - 9:42 AM

Patrick McCaw had a night to forget on Monday vs. the Cavaliers in Vegas, scoring nine points on 3-of-15 shooting.

He was 1-of-6 from deep and didn't make a lot of the noise on the rest of the box score either, finishing with two rebounds, two assists and a block. The Warriors are hoping that McCaw can give them about 18 minutes per game next season and he did have a 25-point gem in his previous outing, but his path to minutes just got more difficult with Nick Young landing in Golden State.
Jul 10 - 11:08 PM

Jordan Bell has gone through the league-mandated concussion protocol testing and has been cleared to play in Monday's exhibition vs. Cleveland.

Bell looked great in just 13 minutes of action in his Summer League debut against the 76ers on Saturday, so maybe he'll be able to get some more floor time tonight against the Cavs. He certainly provides a need for the Warriors as a backup four-man that can defend the rim, but as long as Draymond Green and Kevin Durant are healthy and active, he won't be on the floor enough during his rookie year to make a difference in fantasy hoops.
Jul 10 - 2:56 PM

Warriors assistant Ron Adams praised Damian Jones for his work ethic.

"The No. 1 thing I applaud him on during the last season is he’s really developed into a good worker," Adams said. "Whether it’s the weight room or on the floor, he’s really committed to his routines. He’s motivated to be good." Jones got a late start to his rookie year because he was coming off a pectoral tear, but he made a handful of appearances with the Warriors and was also the D-League player of the month in March, averaging 17.6 points, 7.8 rebounds and more than two blocks per game. If the Warriors don't use their final roster spot to bring back JaVale McGee, there's a chance that Jones could find some minutes behind Zaza Pachulia next season.
