Will Cherry is expected to sign a training camp deal with the Warriors.

The Warriors' roster is full and they have solid depth at the point guard position, so there's no way Cherry will last past camp.

DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) will not be ready for training camp.

Cousins tore his Achilles in late-January, so he might not be making it back to the floor until around Christmas. The primary goal is to have Boogie good to go when the playoffs begin, so expect him to be brought along slowly with plenty of random rest days throughout the year. He's probably going to be more trouble than he's worth, but there's nothing wrong with taking a flier on him towards the later rounds.

Damian Jones said he wants to be the starter for the Warriors.

He has a team option date coming up on Oct. 31, so it's a big preseason coming up for the 2016 first-round pick. I’m going in with the mindset that I’m playing for something. Something big," Jones said about his time at camp. Coach Steve Kerr said he would "love to give" Jones the starting job, which makes sense because he meshes better to slot into JaVale McGee's role. Still, Jordan Bell will be the guy to grab, especially if he can play more PF.

The Lakers reportedly plan on targeting Klay Thompson when he hits free agency in the summer of 2019.

Thompson, one of the best two-way players in the league, would be a terrific fit on nearly any team, and he'll have unlimited suitors once he becomes an unrestricted free agent next July. He has said previously that he wants to be a Warriors for life, but the Lakers could hold some appeal as well. Playing alongside LeBron James is certainly attractive to most players. Also, Klay's father, Mychal Thompson, is a former Laker.

DeMarcus Cousins (left Achilles) was filmed dunking as part of a forthcoming documentary about his recovery from surgery in January.

He jumped off his left foot for the dunk and this supports Steve Kerr's assertion that Boogie is "right on schedule ... [and] hasn't had any setbacks." Golden State can afford to be careful with him and GM Bob Myers said "the goal is to have him in the playoffs," but we should know more after training camp.

Anthony Slater of the Athletic expects Patrick McCaw to sign his $1.74 million qualifying offer within the next couple weeks.

McCaw is a restricted free agent and has been holding out hope that another team would swoop in with an offer sheet, but he's coming off a down year and a significant back injury. Slater adds that McCaw has a clear path to playing time this season and believes the wing can raise his value back up if he can "rediscover his confidence, bump his shooting percentages up a bit, stay healthy and have a few decent playoff moments."

The Warriors are adding Alfonzo McKinnie to their camp roster.

The 6'8" wing made his NBA debut with the Raptors last season, and didn't accomplish much in Las Vegas. He has only a sliver of hope to make the Warriors roster.
Sep 5 - 6:12 PM

Nick Young, Arron Afflalo and Corey Brewer are scheduled for workouts with the Timberwolves.

It looks like the Timberwolves would like to add another wing on the cheap as they currently have very little depth behind Jimmy Butler and Andrew Wiggins. Tom Thibodeau doesn't often go very deep into his bench, though, so it's not like the guy they sign will be relevant in fantasy hoops.

Jordan Bell said he made it the whole month of August without eating any candy, cookies, cake, brownies, or donuts.

"Definitely going to cut the junk food intake from now on," Bell tweeted. He mentioned he was changing his diet earlier this summer, so it would appear he held up his end of the bargain. With DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) still rehabbing, Bell should be in a great spot to produce this season. If you could sneak him in the second half of your draft, that would be like taking candy from a baby.

Coach Steve Kerr said that he would "love to give [Damian Jones] a shot" at the starting center spot.

It was assumed that either Kevon Looney or Jordan Bell would start while DeMarcus Cousins was unavailable; however, Kerr sounds quite high on Jones. "All three of them are very different, which we like. But we’re anxious to see DJ," Kerr said. "He’s worked hard in Santa Cruz and he’s incredibly explosive and powerful. It’ll be fun to throw him out there with our four All-Stars and see what he can do." Jones has appeared in only 25 games over his first two NBA season, averaging just 1.8 points and 1.5 rebounds in 7.0 minutes per contest. Nonetheless, he's now on the radar as a late-round flier in fantasy leagues.

Coach Steve Kerr is not willing to set a timetable for DeMarcus Cousins' return, but did say that Cousins is "right on schedule."

Here's the full quote from Kerr on Cousins: "He’s right on schedule. He hasn’t had any setbacks. He’s doing well. Beyond that, there’s nothing. No prediction. Especially with an Achilles injury, you have to wait and see how the player responds once he’s on the court and moving at full speed." Interestingly, Kerr said that he expects Kevon Looney, Jordan Bell and Damian Jones to compete for the starting center spot while Cousins is sidelined.

David West announced that after 15 years in the league he is retiring from the NBA.

"I have been fortunate enough to live out my childhood dream of playing in the NBA," wrote West, a two-time All-Star and NBA champion. "I have decided to retire from the game of basketball. I am humbled and thankful for the support of my family, friends, coaches, teammates, organizations and fans throughout this experience. To anyone who has ever cheered me on, been in my corner, prayed or simply said a nice word on my behalf, I am grateful. Belief in yourself is non-negotiable. Cheers!"

Nick Young was arrested in Hollywood last Friday during a late-night stop for a routine traffic violation.

Per the police report, Young was arrested for delaying an investigation, a misdemeanor. Officer Mike Lopez, a department spokesman, told The Associated Press that Young didn't obey the officers, became upset and caused a delay. Young was arrested just before midnight local time Friday and released on $10,000 bail about three and a half hours later. His next court date is set for Sept. 19. Young is still a free agent. He will likely have to settle for the vets minimum but is expected to be signed before the start of training camp.

DeMarcus Cousins appears to be making solid progress in his recovery from surgery on his left Achilles.

Cousins tweeted out a video of him going through a recent workout, where he can be seen jogging, getting up shots and throwing down a few dunks. He's still nowhere near 100%, but this is the first real glimpse we've had of him going through any on-court work since the surgery, and it's clear he's making progress. Still, it seems unlikely that Boogie will be ready for the start of the 2018-19 season, and he'll likely see a lot of random rest days on this star-studded Warriors team.
Aug 21 - 5:56 PM

Klay Thompson said he won't be looking for a change of scenery as an unrestricted free agent next summer.

"I’ve said it many times before: I would like to be a Warrior for life," said Thompson. "Contract negotiations are way down the line. But I think we all have the same interest. I would love to be here for the rest of my career." If Thompson wants to stay in Golden State, he'd need to take a bit of a pay cut, but it sounds like he's willing to sacrifice some cash to keep the dynasty going.
