JaVale McGee said he hopes to play for the Warriors next year.

He was a cool story this year after he wasn't a lock to make the roster back in October. McGee was used situationally last year and really shined for his brief stints in the first quarter while Zaza Pachulia was out. He'll be a free agent next month.

The Warriors believed they drafted a first-round talent with their selection of Jordan Bell at No. 38.

The similarities on this pick and Pat McCaw are almost too much. Both players were bought at pick No. 38, both were coming off strong finishes to their college careers, both had the team saying they had first-round grades, and both are extremely high-energy players. Bell is a little undersized as a big man, but he's such an excellent fit on the Warriors for how they switch everything. With Kevon Looney unable to stay healthy and coach Steve Kerr's boy James Michael McAdoo not offering too much upside, don't be shocked to see Bell get in the rotation next year. This team really is unfair.

Oregon PF Chris Boucher has agreed to a two-way contract with the Warriors.

A two-way contract means he will be able to split his time in the G-League and the NBA if the Warriors need another warm body. As a senior at Oregon, he averaged 11.8 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.5 blocks, but he is currently working his way back from a torn ACL he suffered in the semifinals of the Pac-12 Tournament in March. He hopes to be cleared for full basketball activities by October, but he probably won't make an impact in the NBA for a while. He has a 6'9.5" frame with an impressive 7'4" wingspan, but he's already 24 years old which is one of the reasons he went undrafted.

The Warriors will acquire the 38th pick from the Bulls to select Jordan Bell.

The Warriors really are light years ahead and once again they pick up a great player in the second round -- they did the same with Pat McCaw. This pick did cost them $3.5 million, but that is cheaper than the 2017 championship parade. Not many players helped themselves in the NCAA tournament like Jordan Bell. In the five games, Bell averaged 12.6 points, 13.2 boards, 3.0 blocks and 0.8 steals before falling to North Carolina in the Final Four. Bell is all motor and will have to continue to outwork his fellow power forwards. He’s only 6’9" with a 6’11" wingspan, but he has some bounce with his 38-inch max vert.

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.

Jordan Bell had a workout with the Trail Blazers on Monday and said he believes he'd be a good fit with the team.

"Obviously, the [Blazers’] bigs weren’t as tough this year, in my opinion, so I think I could bring that dog to this team. Be the tough guy on defense," said Bell. "Exactly what I did in college is exactly what teams are going to ask me to do. They are not going to ask me to stop shooting the ball, because I already don’t shoot the ball. They are just going to ask me to keep defending, blocking shots and playing within myself." Portland could use some more help at the four-spot, so maybe they look Bell's way when they come on the board with their No. 26 pick.

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.
Jun 19 - 12:16 PM

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.
Jun 19 - 12:06 PM

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.
Jun 15 - 4:48 PM

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.
