Player News - Warriors

Date: Team: Pos:

Warriors' GM Bob Myers said that Patrick McCaw and Damian Jones will suit up for their summer league squad in Las Vegas.

Myers also added that he "thinks" Kevon Looney will participate, but that will likely depend on where he's at with the hip issue. McCaw could step into a much larger role with the Warriors next season if they aren't able to retain Andre Iguodala during free agency, although with Kevin Durant set to sign at a discount in order to keep Iggy on the squad, an Iguodala departure seems unlikely.

Kevin Durant will reportedly decline his player option for the 2017-18 season in order to renegotiate his contract with the Warriors to make it easier for them to re-sign Andre Iguodala this summer.

Durant is reportedly willing to take roughly a $4 million discount in order to let the dynasty in Golden State continue, and this move will help the Dubs invoke their Bird rights on an Iguodala deal that will be competitive with other offers he'll receive on the open market. It's currently believed that Durant will sign another two-year deal with a player option on Year-2, and it'll be interesting to see if Stephen Curry is also willing to sign at a discount in order to keep this team together.

Ian Clark is expected to "garner strong interest" as a free agent this summer.

The 26-year-old PG had a nice year off the Golden State bench, averaging 6.8 points on 48.7 percent shooting in 14.8 minutes per game. The Warriors probably can't afford to keep him and free agent Shaun Livingston is likely a bigger priority for the franchise, so Clark will be looking for a backup role in a new city.

Shams Charania of The Vertical is reporting that Andre Iguodala will "seriously consider" leaving the Warriors as a free agent this summer.

The Warriors don't have much financial flexibility this summer because they have to re-sign Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry, meaning Iggy would have to settle for a deal between $8 to $12 million to remain in Golden State. The Jazz, Clippers, Bulls, Wolves and Hawks are all expected to throw their names in the Iggy sweepstakes and his value could reach "$20 million annually," Charania adds. It's still early, but it sounds like Iguodala will have to choose between chasing titles with the Warriors or doubling his paycheck in a new city.

Andre Iguodala will likely sign a multi-year extension with the Warriors worth somewhere between $8 to $12 million per year, according to Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News.

Kawakami writes that "Iguodala has already indicated that his negotiation is almost already done and that he will re-sign with the Warriors." Iggy showed just how valuable he was to Golden State in the championship-clinching fifth game of the 2017 NBA Finals, when he finished with 20 points, three boards, three assists and two 3-pointers. Fellow free agent Kevin Durant may have to accept slightly less than the max in order to help the Warriors re-sign Iguodala.

Damian Jones said David West has helped him the most this season.

It's fair to say nobody was happier than West about winning a title. West said he doesn't know if he is going to retire, but he showed he can still play 10-15 minutes as a four or five man. He won't have fantasy value, of course.

In an interview during the Warriors championship parade, Kevin Durant said "it's going to be even better next year."

He sure loved winning a title and KD certainly has enough from his off-court money. General manager Bob Myers talked a lot about a meeting in the Hamptons to get KD to join up, and it sure seems like the Warriors have this thing ready to go for a long time. KD is actually quite nice, as it turns out.
Jun 15 - 3:28 PM

David West said he "doesn't know" if he will contemplate retirement this offseason.

West sacrificed upwards of $10 million dollars over the last two seasons just to have a chance at a title. That bet paid off on Monday night, as West won his first ring. "Taking that money in Indiana wouldn’t feel like this," said West after the Warriors Game 5 victory. "I’m just telling you. It wouldn’t. It’s not even close." When asked if he was contemplating retirement, West responded: "I don’t know. I feel good. That’s why everyone keeps asking me. I don’t know. I just feel great."

Warriors general manager Bob Myers said Steve Kerr will be back to coach the 2017-18 season.

Kerr had to take a leave of absence from the team during the postseason due to nausea and migraines he was dealing with stemming from his back injury, but was able to coach the final four games of the Finals. He appeared to avoid any setbacks once he returned to the sidelines for Game 2. "There's no doubt in my mind that he will return as the coach of this team," said Myers. "I'm confident we'll have him back. Steve will be our coach."

Andre Iguodala was incredible in Monday's series-clinching win over the Cavaliers, scoring 20 points on 9-of-14 shooting with three boards, three assists and two 3-pointers.

The Warriors kept him fresh all season for the Finals, and while there's no such thing as a LeBron stopper, Iggy certainly made life difficult for one of the greatest players of our generation. Iguodala, Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry will all be free agents this summer, so the Warriors will need to be creative to keep their core together. With the best front office in the league, they will find a way to make it work. Iguodala is expected to receive interest "from a number of teams" such as the Suns, Wolves and Hawks this summer, but the Warriors should be considered the heavy favorites to bring him back.
Jun 13 - 12:22 AM

Kevin Durant was named the Finals MVP after he won his first NBA title with a 129-120 Game 5 win over the Cavaliers on Monday.

He dropped 39 points on 14-of-20 shooting from the field with seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and five 3-pointers, but his defense on LeBron James was just as crucial to the Warriors success. Durant is a free agent this summer, but he's not going anywhere and he said that he's willing to take a discount to keep the Warriors core together -- Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala are also free agents. KD will be 29 in September and has been one of the best players in fantasy over the last decade.

The Warriors were crowned the 2017 NBA champions after Monday's 129-120 Game 5 win over the Cavaliers.

The trophy is back in the Bay for the second time in three years. Kevin Durant is likely going to be named the Finals MVP, but Stephen Curry was incredible as well and got some redemption after a poor showing the year before. He scored 34 points on 10-of-20 shooting, adding 10 assists, six rebounds, three steals and two 3-pointers. Curry's bargain of a contract expires this summer, but he's fully expected to return to the Warriors with a new "super max" contract that will exceed $200 million. He will be a no-brainer pick in the top five of fantasy leagues next season.

The NBA will not discipline Zaza Pachulia, according to Sam Amick of USA Today.

Zaza is lucky here, especially after his history of causing injuries in this postseason. To be fair, Pachulia is a little wild and his style of play is part of the reason Kevin Durant had a knee injury during the regular season. Still, coach Steve Kerr may want to make an adjustment after the Cavs have been killing the Warriors on threes.
Jun 10 - 8:52 PM

The NBA is reviewing the Zaza Pachulia incident from the second half of Game 4 on Friday.

As they should. Pachulia hit Iman Shumpert below the belt and he apparently kicked someone, so the NBA was obviously going to look at this following the Kawhi Leonard incident last month. If Zaza Pachulia does get suspended, coach Steve Kerr may opt to start Patrick McCaw or even Andre Iguodala to help defend the perimeter after the Dubs gave up an NBA Finals record 24 treys on Friday.
Jun 10 - 3:44 PM

Kevin Durant scored 35 points during a Game 4 loss to the Cavs on Friday, adding four rebounds, four assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

The Warriors have a 3-1 lead, so hopefully the internet can come up with some new jokes this weekend. As for KD, he played well yet again and has now scored at least 30 points in each of the four NBA Finals games. He also hit the 3,000-point mark for his playoffs career, becoming the 25th player ever to do so. Yes, the Warriors have a 3-1 lead, but this time they have arguably the best pure scorer of all time.
