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 ESPN.com.

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.

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.
Jul 14 - 8:45 PM

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.
Jul 14 - 8:27 PM

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.

Pacers waive F Georges Niang.

After the Iowa State product lit it up early in Orlando Pro Summer League in 2016, he could never really get it going after that. He did have a knee injury earlier this month on July 2, but there was no word of the severity on that injury. He'll probably get a camp invite somewhere.
Jul 14 - 5:18 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.
