Date: Team: Pos:

Jason Thompson was traded to the Warriors on Friday in exchange for Gerald Wallace.

He will finally get to play on a winning team after playing every game in his career with the Kings. Thompson is likely out of the rotation with the Warriors and will have to beat Marreese Speights and/or Festus Ezeli for playing time.

James Michael McAdoo has been working extensively on his jumper with assistant coach Ron Adams.

The Warriors had some confidence in McAdoo at Summer League and even gave him the green light on treys. Even with the loss of David Lee, McAdoo is still not a lock for minutes. If Draymond Green, Marreese Speights, Festus Ezeli or Andrew Bogut miss time, he's likely the next man up.

Luke Walton will be promoted to a lead assistant role with the Warriors.

Walton was at Las Vegas and helped coach the Summer League team. He will replace Alvin Gentry and will likely be more involved on the offensive side of things.

Andrew Bogut said that you can't win a championship going solely small, but he also said you can't win a championship going solely big either.

Bogut was phenomenal for most of the 2014-15 season for Golden State, but he was benched for the entirety of Game 5 and Game 6 during the NBA Finals when the Warriors opted to play small ball. Bogut posted averages of 6.3 points, 8.1 boards, 2.7 assists and 1.7 blocks in 67 appearances during the regular season, and it's safe to expect similar numbers next season with a similar roster in town.

Warriors C Festus Ezeli recently worked out with Joakim Noah at a training facility.

Ezeli gave the Warriors some big bench minutes throughout the playoffs, including 10 points, four rebounds and a block in 11 minutes during Golden State's Finals-clinching win in Game 6. He's not in Noah's league as a passer but he has all the tools to be an effective NBA center for many years, though fantasy owners can ignore him while Andrew Bogut is installed as the Dubs' starter.

Steve Kerr will undergo back surgery on Tuesday in order to address a herniated disk.

He has reportedly been dealing with this issue for a couple of months, but hopefully the Warriors head coach will be back on his feet in no time. Kerr deserves a lot of credit for leading the Warriors to the 2014-15 NBA Championship, and it will be interesting to see if they can repeat their success next year with a similar roster in town.

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.
Jul 27 - 3:00 PM

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.
Jul 24 - 4:23 PM

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.
Jul 24 - 11:22 AM

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.
Jul 23 - 2:53 PM

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.
Jul 22 - 1:04 PM

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.
