The Warriors signed Patrick McCaw to a guaranteed deal.

The Warriors have been praising him since they traded up to No. 38 to get him. McCaw was fifth in Division I and compares himself to Kawhi Leonard and Jimmy Butler, so at least he's aiming high. The UNLV product will feel right at home in Las Vegas Summer League as one of the top-20 players to watch.

Robert Carter declined an opportunity to get drafted in the second round.

He has already agreed to join the Warriors in Summer League. His agent, Todd Ramasar, confirmed that the Hawks at No. 44 and Nuggets at No. 53 were considering him and possibly sending him to Europe. Ramasar said the Warriors need help in their frontcourt, which explains why he's with them in Vegas. Carter was arguably the top undrafted player and the news of him signing with the Dubs was almost instantaneous when the draft ended. Keep an eye on the 6'9" forward with his 7'3" wingspan.

Harrison Barnes has made the Team USA roster for the Rio Olympics.

He had a disappointing 2015-16 season, but this should be a great learning experience for the 24-year-old forward. The Warriors have been heavily linked with Kevin Durant and Nicolas Batum this summer, so Barnes' future with the franchise is still up in the air. Don't be surprised if a team offers him a max contract this summer with the salary cap rising to $94 million.

The Warriors are planning to have Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson board a plane in a effort to pitch Kevin Durant, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

According to Stein's report, the Warriors "increasingly believe" they can persuade KD based on how the Warriors fell short in the NBA Finals. If the can bring on Durant, that would mean Harrison Barnes and Festus Ezeli would be gone while they might have to unload Andrew Bogut or Andre Iguodala. Giddy up.

Damian Jones (pectoral) said the time frame for recovery from his torn pectoral surgery is about six months.

An earlier report from today said he was hoping to get back on the court in 3-4 months, but this six-month timetable is more realistic. Jones could have went in the lottery if not for his recent pectoral tear from a workout, so the Warriors might have a steal. Plus, it's not like he would've been in the rotation for the Dubs anyway.

Damian Jones (pectoral) said that he is 3-4 months away from getting back on the court.

His injury caused him to slide on draft night, but the Warriors won't mind and they are getting great value with the 30th pick. Jones will be in a sling for six more weeks, but the 3-4 month timetable means his status for training camp is likely in doubt. Once healthy, Jones could be a nice replacement for impending free agent Festus Ezeli.

A.J. English will play in the summer league with the Warriors.

The Iona guard averaged 22.6 points, 6.2 assists, 5.0 boards, 1.6 steals and 3.4 treys on 43.3 percent shooting from the field during his senior season. The combo guard will have his work cut out for him in order to receive a training camp invite from Golden State.

Undrafted C Mamadou Ndiaye will reportedly sign a partially-guaranteed deal with the Warriors.

The former UC Irvine behemoth is 7'6" tall, weighs 290 pounds, and has an 8'1" wingspan. He averaged 7.3 rebounds and 2.2 blocks in just 23.3 minutes per game as a junior, but his raw skill-set suggests that he'll need a long acclimation to the NBA game. He's likely to end up in the D-League this season, but we'll let you know how he fares during the offseason.

Undrafted Robert Carter agreed to a deal with the Warriors.

Carter is another wingspan special at 7’3", so that helps him at only 6’9". He was also a plus scorer at Maryland, averaging 12.4 points per game with a 54.9 field goal percentage and a 74.0 free throw percentage. He could potentially add some range, so he’s trendy prospect.

The Golden State Warriors have selected Patrick McCaw with the No. 38 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

The No. 38 selection originally belonged to Milwaukee, but the Warriors bought the pick for $2.48 million, per The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski. McCaw is one of the most wiry prospects out there standing 6’7" with a 6’10" wingspan, but he’s very light at 181 pounds and is only capable of playing shooting guard right now. The UNLV product put up productive stats in his sophomore season, averaging 14.5 points, 5.2 boards, 3.9 assists, 2.4 steals, 0.4 blocks and 2.0 treys. Golden State will hope that he develops into a capable 3-and-guy down the road. He'll get his first taste of NBA action in summer league.

The Golden State Warriors have selected Damian Jones with the No. 30 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

After taking Kevon Looney (hip) at the end of Round 1 in 2015, this marks the second straight year that the Dubs are tabbing an injured big as their man as Jones had surgery on his torn pectoral due to a bench-pressing injury at a workout. The 20-year-old Vanderbilt junior earned an All-SEC First Team nod, averaging 13.9 points, 6.9 boards, 1.6 blocks and 3.3 fouls in 26.2 minutes per game. Jones also ranked first for hand width at the combine with his 7’4" wingspan. His rehab should have him ready for basketball activities around training camp, but he’ll likely be brought along slowly and will not play in summer league. He could have a larger than anticipated role if Festus Ezeli departs via free agency.

Klay Thompson will play for Team USA at the 2016 Olympic Games.

Team USA is still awaiting word from Kyrie Irving and LeBron James, but James is said to be leaning towards sitting 2016 out. Thompson is coming off a career-year in which he produced averages of 22.1 points, 2.1 assists and 3.5 triples over 80 games, and it's a bit surprising to see him commit to USA Basketball after a deep and somewhat disappointing postseason run. Through five years in the league, Thompson has sat out a mere seven games.
Jun 23 - 3:58 PM

The Warriors are reportedly trying to move up in the first round of the 2016 NBA Draft.

The Dubs currently own the No. 30 overall selection in the upcoming draft, and they do not own any second-round picks, but they are reportedly trying to move up into the teens. Phoenix, Denver, Philadelphia and Boston all own multiple first-round picks, and it's unlikely that they'll use all of them, so moving up is a realistic possibility. The Trail Blazers are also trying to acquire a first-round selection.

Warriors GM Bob Myers confirmed that Stephen Curry (knee) will not require offseason surgery.

Curry was also dealing with ankle and elbow injuries in the Finals, but none of his ailments seem to have long-term implications. The reigning MVP has decided to skip the Olympics to rest and he should be fully healthy entering training camp, which is great news for fantasy owners who land the No. 1 pick in their drafts.
Jun 22 - 8:34 PM

Andrew Bogut's left knee injury will not require surgery, according to Warriors GM Bob Myers.

This was the expectation when the Warriors updated Bogut's status a week ago, but it's nice to have it confirmed by the team's GM. Bogut suffered bone bruises to his tibia and femur, and he's expected to miss 6-8 weeks, making it very likely that he'll be sidelined when Australia competes in the Rio Olympics.
