Ognjen Kuzmic will sign with Panathinaikos BC.

He didn't get playing time with the Warriors at all in the postseason, but he's an NBA champion. Kuzmic could not stay healthy and only logged 72 minutes last season.

Warriors sign G Ian Clark.

He was with the Nuggets for Summer League and played well, averaging 13.4 points, 3.4 dimes, 1.6 steals and 2.4 treys. Clark played in just 23 games last season with the Jazz and only logged 7.0 minutes per night. He is likely just a camp body.

Chris Babb was traded to the Warriors in the David Lee-Gerald Wallace deal on Monday.

Not originally thought to be a part of the package, the Celtics will wind up sending Babb's contract in addition to the veteran Wallace for Lee. It would be a surprise to see Babb make Golden State's final roster.

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Harrison Barnes are all expected to be invited to Team USA's minicamp in Vegas in August.

Curry and Thompson are obvious choices, but this also goes to show how much Green and Barnes have improved over the past couple of years. The Warriors will pretty much field a similar team during the 2015-16 campaign except for the fact that David Lee is no longer in town, but their path to another NBA title will be tougher than ever with teams such as the Rockets, Spurs and Clippers making a splash this summer, not to mention the return of Kevin Durant to the Thunder's lineup.

Jordan Crawford said his new nickname is "Sizzle" and he left his old nickname "Steez" in Boston and Washington, D.C.

"When I land on the pan, I pop," Crawford said. "You know that’s all sizzle." Well, his old nickname "Steez" was one of the best -- especially for Gang Starr fans -- so this is a downgrade. Crawford didn't impress with the Mavs at 2015 Summer League with just 10.2 points per game on 36.1 percent from the field, so he's not a lock to be on a roster. We're still going to call him Steez.

Harrison Barnes expressed his desire to stay with the Warriors for the long term.

"I mean, we just won a championship," Barnes said. "Of course I'd love to keep this group together for many years to come, you know what I'm saying? So that's obvious." The Warriors have until Oct. 31 to agree to a contract extension for Barnes, but if an agreement isn't reached then he will become a restricted free agent at the end of next season. The Warriors have already made it clear that they intend to keep Barnes, so the two sides should be able to agree on a deal. Despite some struggles in the NBA Finals, Barnes was solid during the 2014-15 campaign and will look to build on his regular-season averages of 10.1 points, 5.5 boards, 1.4 assists and 1.1 3-pointers per game.

The Warriors rescinded Ognjen Kuzmic's qualifying offer worth $1.1 million on Thursday.

Kuzmic will now be an unrestricted free agent, and it'll be interesting to see if he can snag another deal with an NBA club. He's said that he's open to returning to Europe, so that's another option for Kuzmic. He won't be anything more than an emergency depth kind of guy, regardless of where he winds up, so there's no reason to draft him in any league.

Draymond Green reportedly plans on accepting his invitation to participate in the Team USA minicamp in Las Vegas this summer.

Green has said that he would like to play for Team USA at the next Olympic games, and this would be the first step in that direction. He had a phenomenal year in Golden State last season, posting averages of 11.7 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.6 steals, 1.4 three-pointers, 1.3 blocks and just 1.7 turnovers per game. Those across the board contributions are elite in fantasy leagues, and he'll make for a fine early-round selection in next year's drafts.

Kevon Looney said he's working with coach Ron Adams to improve his footwork on his shot.

Looney was taking 3-pointers towards the end of summer league and said he's just working on taking what the defense gives him. The UCLA rookie slipped a bit in the draft due to a hip injury, but he looks like a very good value at No. 30. In six Vegas games, Looney averaged 9.3 points, 7.3 boards, 1.0 blocks and 0.5 treys. He's behind James Michael McAdoo and won't get minutes to start the season.

Ian Clark is hoping to earn a training camp invite from the Nuggets.

"Ian loves this stage," new Nuggets Coach Mike said. "He's more than just a shooter, which is why I like him. He's a guy that knows how to play, he can put the ball on the floor, and defensively I trust him." That's a strong endorsement for a summer league player, and it would be surprising if Denver doesn't invite him to camp if we're reading between the lines.

Ognjen Kuzmic said that he is open to returning to Europe, but not this upcoming season.

Kuzmic is a restricted free agent, and it's likely he'll be back with the Dubs next season. However, he only managed to play in 16 games for the Warriors during the 2014-15 season, so his fantasy value in Golden State is non-existent.

Kevon Looney made 6-of-17 from the field for 13 points against the Pelicans on Saturday, adding 11 rebounds, three assists and one block.

The Warriors rested James Michael McAdoo today to give Looney some extra run. The UCLA big man can play all over the floor and is right up Golden State's alley as a floor-spacing, play-making big man. Still, McAdoo is ahead of him on the depth chart and Looney has no value in most leagues.

Steve Kerr said that he intends to bring Andre Iguodala off the bench again for the 2015-16 season.

"I don't anticipate changing anything," said Kerr. "We won 67 games with the group that we had. And we've got our core back, just about everybody's back. And more than likely we'll play it the same way. But you never know how things go. We'll see. But the good thing is we're capable of playing a lot of different ways with a lot of different combinations, as we showed throughout the season." Iguodala jumped into the starting lineup to help contain LeBron James during the Finals, but he'll head right back to the bench next season. Iguodala does a little bit of everything, but coming off the bench limits his value to deeper leagues.
Jul 16 - 6:49 PM

James Michael McAdoo scored 20 points on Wednesday with nine rebounds, three assists and two steals.

He has been one of the best power forwards in Las Vegas and has showed a lot of versatility to his game. McAdoo already had some solid numbers before this game, averaging 15.3 points, 4.0 boards and 1.3 blocks in his previous three. He still is very unlikely to make the rotation to start the season.
Jul 15 - 10:03 PM

Kevon Looney stated during a recent interview that he's been doing a lot of "extra work" to keep his hip "strong and stable."

"I've been doing a lot of rehab and extra work just to keep it strong and stable," said Looney. Concerns about Looney's hip caused him to plummet all the way to the No. 30 overall selection in the 2015 NBA draft, but it looks like he's making a conscious effort to ensure it won't be an issue moving forward. He'll have an extremely minimal role with the Warriors during his rookie season, and won't be worth drafting in most leagues.
