Leandro Barbosa and the Warriors agreed on a one-year, $2.5 million deal.

He had a couple bright spots for the Warriors in the postseason and only the Pelicans had interest in the Brazilian Blur. Barbosa won't have much fantasy value next season.
Jul 6 - 7:02 PM

Justin Holiday is expected to leave the Warriors in free agency this summer.

Holiday averaged 4.3 points in 59 appearances last season, and he only saw 11.1 minutes per game. The Warriors are loaded on the wings, so Holiday would have a lot of trouble finding playing time if he re-signed with the Warriors. Unless Holiday lands in an ideal situation, he is well off the fantasy radar.
Jul 5 - 9:44 AM

The Knicks and Lakers may attempt to trade for David Lee if they miss out on all the big name free agents.

Lee would see a major boost in value if he is shipped out of Golden State, and on either of the aforementioned teams he would have a good chance to average close to 18 points and 10 rebounds per game. Neither the Lakers nor the Knicks are likely to land a marquee player during free agency, so shifting their focus to Lee (who is still a solid offensive player) could make sense.
Jul 2 - 2:27 PM

Draymond Green and the Warriors have agreed on a five-year, $85 million deal.

There was no way any team had a chance to pry Draymond Green away from the Warriors. He will continue to get minutes at center and should have even more playing time next season. The Warriors are expected to try and deal David Lee, but that won't affect Green's playing time. He's a top-25 pick in fantasy leagues? Yeah.
Jul 1 - 10:58 PM

The Warriors and restricted free agent Draymond Green have broken off contract talks.

The Warriors met with Green and his agent, B.J. Armstrong, in Los Angeles after 12:01 a.m. EDT. Green has likely earned a max deal and Tristan Thompson getting around $80 million is going to strengthen the case for Draymond, too. The Warriors are still likely to match any deal.
Jul 1 - 3:25 PM

The Warriors' first call in the free agency period was to restricted free agent Draymond Green.

He's staying? Yeah. He's likely to get close to a max deal? Yeah. Parade references aside, it would be a shock to see Draymond on another team next year. Expect this deal to get done quickly for the second-round fantasy talent.
Jul 1 - 4:32 AM

The Pelicans are reportedly "likely" to have interest in free agent G Leandro Barbosa.

Alvin Gentry's pre-existing relationship with Barbosa may factor into New Orleans' interest, and Barbosa would give them some backcourt insurance with Norris Cole entering restricted free agency and Toney Douglas' future in New Orleans uncertain.

The Warriors have picked up their team option for Marreese Speights for the 2015-16 season.

It's a good deal for the Warriors, who will owe Speights around $3.8 million for this upcoming season. The Warriors have drafted two solid young power forwards in the last two drafts in Kevon Looney and James Michael McAdoo, so they'll be looking to unload David Lee.
Jun 29 - 2:47 PM

Draymond Green said he's entering restricted free agency with "no expectations," but the Warriors are likely to match any offer he receives.

Golden State has the upper-hand to retain their versatile forward, who is coming off a career-year during which he averaged 11.2 points, 8.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists while earning All-Defensive First Team honors. "[The Warriors] said they wanted to keep me, but we will see what happens," Green said. "There is really no need to feel pressure." The Pistons, Hawks and Rockets reportedly have interest in Draymond, but all signs point to him beginning the 2015-16 season in the Bay Area.
Jun 28 - 10:13 PM

Warriors general manager Bob Meyers praised Kevon Looney's versatility after selecting him with the 30th pick of the NBA Draft.

"Drafting a player like Kevon who has a lot of different skill sets really speaks to the way we play, the way we want to play," Myers said. "He could be out there playing five, the four, or three. That's the way we think the NBA is trending, being able to employ multiple skill sets. Coaches love guys that can be placed in many different positions, and Kevon's a great example of that." Looney's stock plummeted in the draft due to concerns about his hip, back and possibly asthma, but his potential makes him worth the risk. Looney will need some time to develop, so don't expect him to play a large role on the Warriors next season.

General manager Bob Meyers said he's leaning toward picking up Marreese Speights' team option.

The Warriors may have had a solid pickup last year with James Michael McAdoo and they also went power forward with Kevon Looney at 30. The Warriors will be looking to unload David Lee in the next few months.
Jun 26 - 3:16 AM

The Warriors selected F Kevon Looney out of UCLA with the 30th and last pick of the first round on Thursday.

There has been some negative buzz around Looney for his hip injury, which some speculated could cause him to miss some action next season, and he also may need back surgery down the line. However, he has big-time potential, making 41.5 percent from beyond the arc while putting up a 12.2 offensive rebounding rate last season. The 6’9" forward also played some point guard in high school, so there is a lot to like. We'll keep a close eye on his hip during Summer League and Warriors' camp this summer and fall.
Jun 25 - 10:55 PM

Brandon Rush has exercised his player option to remain with the Warriors for the 2015-16 season.

Rush averaged just 8.2 minutes in 33 appearances during the 2014-15 regular season, so he wouldn't have drawn a lot of interest on the open market. Rush will be buried on the Warriors bench again next season, so he can be ignored in most fantasy leagues.
Jun 25 - 7:16 PM

The Warriors are reportedly not looking to trade David Lee before or during Thursday's 2015 NBA Draft.

The Warriors are more likely to assess Lee's market over the next few weeks, according to Tim Kawakami of the Mercury News, although Kawakami adds that the situation is very fluid. We'll keep an eye on this situation as the draft unfolds, but it sounds like a trade of the Warriors' highest-paid player isn't as imminent as originally thought.
Jun 25 - 1:21 PM

The Warriors are reportedly exploring the possibility of trading up in the 2015 NBA draft.

The Warriors really don't have much room in their rotation, so regardless of who they draft, that player is extremely unlikely to put up any standard league value during his rookie season. With the draft just two days away, the rumors are starting to run rampant, so it'll be interesting to see if this one comes to fruition.
