Warriors waive F/C Hilton Armstrong.

They signed him in March due to the injury to Andrew Bogut and he didn't really have any chance for his contract to be guaranteed to start the season. Armstrong played in 15 games last season, averaging 1.7 points, 3.1 boards and 0.3 blocks in 6.5 minutes per game.

Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry are both confident that Thompson will remain with the Warriors despite Golden State's involvement in Kevin Love trade talks.

Thompson spoke with coach Steve Kerr and said he "got the vibe" that he's not going anywhere next season, which meshes with reports that Golden State has refused to include him in trades. His sentiments were echoed by Curry, who said, "Every year there is some rumor in play ... But they've made a decision, at least it seems like they have, that Klay is an investment they don't want to give up." Both of the Warriors' young guards are vying for spots on Team USA during this week's training camp in Las Vegas.

The Warriors officially signed Brandon Rush to a two-year deal on Tuesday.

Rush, the No. 13 pick in the 2008 draft, only played in 38 games after recovering from ACL surgery last season. He gives the Warriors another solid perimeter option but isn't likely to hold fantasy value in standard formats.

The Warriors have until October 31 to decide on whether they will exercise Nemanja Nedovic's third-year $1.2 million option for the 2015-16 season.

The Warriors already have $56.1 million committed to five players for the 2015-16 season, plus team options on Harrison Barnes and Festus Ezeli, and a pending big contract for Klay Thompson. With all these decisions to make, it wouldn't be shocking to see them part ways with the $1.5 million that will be owed to an underwhelming Nedovic for the 2015-16 season. Nedovic was severely out-played by undrafted rookie Aaron Craft during the Las Vegas Summer League, and so far, Nedovic doesn't even look like a decent third-string point guard.

The Warriors are citing defense as the primary reason as to why they will not include Klay Thompson in a Kevin Love deal.

Thompson is able to take a lot of pressure off Stephen Curry on the defensive end, and in the proposed deals so far, Golden State wouldn't be getting defensive players in return. Kevin Love isn't a two-way player and it appears that Warriors management doesn't believe that adding Love while losing Klay will put them into the conversation for immediate contention. Stay tuned.

Klay Thompson's agent, Bill Duffy, is looking for a max extension for his client.

Thompson has just three years of experience, so a max deal for him would only be around $15.7 million for the first season, which isn't as high as it would be for Kevin Love. The Warriors have been hesitant to include Thompson on a deal for Love and may have lost ground to the Cavs.

The Timberwolves would reportedly rather have Klay Thompson than Andrew Wiggins in a deal for Kevin Love.

The Timberwolves reportedly see Thompson as "more ready" to contribute immediately than Wiggins, however the Warriors remain firm in their stance that they're unwilling to part with Thompson. The Cavs too have refuted reports that they are willing to include Wiggins, and the Summer of Love remains at a standstill.

Brandon Rush agreed to a two-year deal with the Warriors.

The second year is a player option. Rush was with the Warriors a couple seasons ago before they shed some cap space with the Jazz, but now he's back and will provide some depth. It's unclear if his knee is any better from an ACL tear, so we aren't expecting him to make an impact.

Unrestricted free agent Jermaine O'Neal is contemplating retirement after 18-years in the league.

The Warriors are remaining in touch with O'Neal in case he decides to suit up for his 19th NBA season. O'Neal could sign a one-year deal with the Warriors for the veteran's minimum, but this would be a situation in which he offers much more to the Warriors organization than a fantasy squad. O'Neal averaged 7.9 points, and 5.5 rebounds with the Dubs last season, missing 28 games due to injury.

David Lee has withdrawn his name from the USA national team training camp roster after undergoing a "very minor" surgery to address a core muscle injury.

The Warriors expect Lee to fully recover by early August, but he doesn't want to rush a return. Warriors coach Steve Kerr stated that Lee is "fine," and added that he's been working out. This seems like a very minor procedure, and Lee should be ready to go for the start of training camp next season.

Steve Kerr has talked with both David Lee and Klay Thompson regarding all the trade rumors that have come up lately involving Kevin Love.

"They both get it," Kerr said. "I told them, 'I know you get it. It doesn't make it any easier.' But this is why you really get paid... You get paid because you can get traded, and you have to uproot your family. You can get hurt, you can get booed, and people on the message board are crushing you. That's where you actually earn your money in this league, where it actually feels like work." Talks between the Warriors and Timberwolves have stalled with the Warriors refusing to include Thompson in a deal that would net them Love.

Justin Holiday had a game-winning putback on Saturday to finish his line of 29 points, 13 rebounds, one assist and two blocks.

He scored just two points in the opener, so this was unexpected. Holiday will need three more games like this one to make the Warriors.

Shaun Livingston will miss the next 3-4 weeks with a sprained right big toe he injured during the playoffs.

Livingston doesn't need the offseason work like a younger player and the only concern here is if the situation lingers into the preseason. We'll let you know if that is the case.

Steve Kerr said Friday that he envisions David Lee starting, but made comments that suggest his minutes could take a hit.

"That’s where I think Draymond Green and Harrison Barnes can make a big difference if we go small," Kerr told KNBR on Friday. "Their ability to shoot threes is big." Kerr would also add, "I love Lee, and I think he’s going to be our starter, and he’s going to score a lot and be our slasher and our interior scorer. But we need to complement that with some perimeter shooting from that spot, too."
Jul 11 - 7:41 PM

The Warriors reportedly remain firm in their stance that they will not include Klay Thompson in a deal for Kevin Love.

Even with the Cavaliers aggressively pursuing Love, the Warriors are not interested in sweetening their deal to include Klay Thompson. Steve Kerr and Jerry West are both strong advocates of Thompson, so it appears, for right now, Klay will be staying put in Oakland.
