Kevin Durant apologized on Tuesday for criticizing the Thunder and his former coach Billy Donovan.

Durant responded to a critic via his official Twitter account earlier in the week, writing in the third-person, "[Durant] didn’t like the organization or playing for Billy Donovan. His roster wasn’t that good. It was just him and [Russell Westbrook] ... Imagine taking Russ off that team, see how bad they were. KD can’t win with those cats." Durant has since deleted the tweets and denounced his actions as "childish" and "idiotic." He'll get a rowdy reception when the Warriors visit Oklahoma City on Nov. 22.

Zaza Pachulia said he's retiring from Georgia's national team.

His team was knocked out of EuroBasket, but it was a great sign he could play after some ankle issues. Pachulia signed with the Warriors for one year and he could stay there after this season, assuming he's willing to take a cap-friendly deal.

The Warriors have reportedly signed Michael Gbinije to a training camp deal.

The Dubs have a ton of depth on the wings, so it will be nearly impossible for Gbinije to land a spot on the regular-season roster.
Sep 5 - 5:28 PM

Zaza Pachulia (ankle) has been cleared to play for Georgia at Eurobasket.

His status was in doubt after he injured his ankle during a prep game vs. the Czech Republic, but it wasn't as serious as initially believed. Pachulia made it through a full practice on Sunday and is ready to roll for what will likely be his last tournament with his national team.

Zaza Pachulia (ankle) said he is hopeful that he will be able to play in EuroBasket.

Pachulia injured his ankle during a prep game vs. the Czech Republic and hasn't played since. However, he said the ankle is feeling "better and better" with treatment, and he's now optimistic he will be able to suit up next week. "Absolutely. That’s the plan, that’s my goal. But health is very important obviously. Especially when you talk about an ankle," said Pachulia. Zaza also said that the Warriors doctors are following the situation closely and they will come to a joint decision.

Zaza Pachulia (ankle) could miss Eurobasket after picking up an ankle injury.

Georgian national team coach Ilias Zouros said Pachulia will "probably" miss the entire tournament, but a final decision will be made when he's re-evaluated in a few days. Even if he does miss Eurobasket, there's no reason to think this is something will limit him at the Warriors training camp next month. Pachulia only played 18.1 minutes per game last season despite his starting role, so he's not a great fantasy target.

Steve Kerr expects to coach "all year" next season and "for many years to come."

"I’d love to say that I’m all better, but not the case. I’m feeling better, having a good summer, relaxing. But it’s just been an ongoing thing now for two years," said Kerr. "I fully expect to coach all year [next season]. That’s my expectation. And for many years to come." Severe headaches forced Kerr to the sidelines for the first half of the 2015-16 season, and he was again relegated to the sidelines for 11 games during the Dubs' 2017 playoff run, but it sounds like he's made enough progress so that this won't be an issue that requires him to take time off during the 2017-18 season.

The Warriors have signed Georges Niang to a partially guaranteed deal.

This is a camp invite for Niang, but he'll likely be spending most of the 2017-18 season with Golden State's G-League affiliate.

Stephen Curry said he would have been willing to sign at a discount with the Warriors this summer.

"I actually asked Bob [Myers]," Curry said. "If I were to take a discount — at any number, I don’t know what it would be — how much of a difference would that make for us to be able to sign other guys. It wasn’t like [Kevin Durant’s] situation. His had a direct impact on us being able to sign Andre [Iguodala] and Shaun [Livingston]. And it was just an unbelievable sacrifice by KD. But mine didn’t matter." Because the Warriors own Curry's bird rights, they were able to reward him with a five-year, $201 million super-max deal without it significantly affecting their cap situation.

JaVale McGee has agreed to re-sign with the Warriors, according to Chris Haynes of

Nick Young and JaVale McGee are together again. McGee had a simple role with the Dubs as a rim-runner, rim protector, and catching some lobs. He had some very important minutes in the postseason and will look to get some backup minutes again. After winning the title last year, the Warriors sure do know how to keep their team together.

Phil Pressey signed with FCB Barcelona.

He wasn't in the NBA last season and hasn't started a game since the 2013-14 season. Pressey's lack of size was always a problem in the NBA and it explains why he made just 34.1 percent from the field in his NBA career. He should have some success in Spain, though.

Antonius Cleveland has agreed to a deal with the Warriors.

It's likely a training camp deal or a two-way contract, but the undrafted guard out of Southeast Missouri State has basically no shot of cracking the 15-man roster. Expect Cleveland to end up in the G-League.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said he would like to see JaVale McGee return to Golden State.

"We’d love to have him back," Kerr said. "If he doesn’t come back, then I think we would be patient and explore our options." The Warriors can only offer McGee a minimum deal, as they used their entire mid-level exception to sign Nick Young. McGee was "not happy" with the Warriors when they did that, but there's still a good chance he comes back because his market hasn't been great. If he does re-sign, a role with minutes in the teens seems likely.

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.

Pistons waive G Michael Gbinije.

The Pistons will drop their roster to 14 with this move and will likely get some two-way deals to fill the last spot.
