Rudy Gay opts out, joins free agency; could he be a fit?

Golden State is in need of a few off-season pieces. Could the Spurs forward fit the mold? While the NBA Finals may have concluded over a week ago, the true madness of the season is about to begin. The NBA Draft is just a few days away, on June 21. A mere 10 days later, free agency begins, and some players are allowed to start signing contracts. On July 6, all hell breaks loose, as all free agents can sign freely. And the Warriors will need to make some noise. The team currently has nine players under contract, leaving six spots open. Barring a trade, their first round draft pick on...

How mock drafts predict the Warriors will use No. 28 pick in NBA draft

How confident are the Warriors in their scouting department? They firmly believe that they will draft a player with the No. 28 pick in Thursday’s NBA draft — a spot often used on prospects who spend most of their careers overseas — who can contribute immediately. With its highest pick since it took Harrison Barnes seventh overall in 2012, Golden State will probably take a rotation-ready wing. Now, with three days until the draft, The Chronicle is looking at whom the top online mock drafts project the Warriors to select at No. 28: ...

Warriors work out six prospects on Monday

Golden State is doing their research prior to Thursday’s draft. With the 2018 NBA Draft just three days away, the Golden State Warriors are getting down to business, and doing due diligence with some prospects. On Monday, the team hosted six different draft eligible players, as they continue to search for offseason upgrades through the draft. The six players Golden State worked out were 6’6” shooting guard Ben Emelogu from SMU, 6’6” shooting guard Melvin Frazier from Tulane, 6’6” small forward Jeffrey Carroll from Oklahoma State, 6’8” small forward Xavier Cooks from...

Giants’ top pick Joey Bart tours AT&T Park, meets Buster Posey

Joey Bart generally tried to stay out of the Giants’ way as they prepared for Monday night’s game against the Marlins, but the No. 2 overall pick made a point to seek out Buster Posey. Bart, whom will probably replace the All-Star catcher one day, chatted up Posey as part of a whirlwind tour of AT&T Park a day after signing the richest signing bonus ever for a drafted position player ($7.025 million). Accompanied by his parents and two older brothers, Bart talked with Posey about his plans to workout at the Giants’ spring-training facility until he’s...

Raiders DE Khalil Mack named called way too soon in NFL Top 100 countdown at 16

Raiders DE Khalil Mack named called way too soon in NFL Top 100 countdown at 16

Few positions are at more of a premium in the NFL than pass rusher. And there isn’t a single pass rusher who can claim to be better than Khalil Mack. And yet, the NFL Top 100 each year doesn’t place him atop the pass rusher mountain. This year he comes in at number 16, which seems entirely too low. He was recently ranked 6th overall by Pro Football Focus and got the 8th highest rating on Madden ‘19. Last year we had to wait another week to hear the then reigning Defensive Player of the Year get his name called at five overall, but even then Von Miller was ranked above him at second...

Countdown to kickoff: 84 is Paul Butler, it’s also best Raiders non-kicker scoring rookie season ever

Countdown to kickoff: 84 is Paul Butler, it’s also best Raiders non-kicker scoring rookie season ever

It’s Monday, which means we are exactly 12 weeks from the start of the Raiders 2018 season opener. They take on the Rams at home as the second half of the Monday Night Football lineup. Currently wearing number 84 for the Raiders is tight end Paul Butler. The 6-6, 252-pounder made the Raiders team the hard way. He was a tryout player. He isn’t fresh out of college though. Butler had a tryout for the Steelers in 2017 after going undrafted out of California PA, but didn’t make the team. He got another shot for the Raiders this offseason and his shot continues. Butler is a long shot to...

What’s your burger of choice?

The 2018 offseason is truly in full swing following the close of mandatory minicamp. The San Francisco 49ers do not return to practice again until training camp starts in late July. That means we’ve got over five weeks of down time. We’ll have plenty to discuss over the next month and a half, but in the meantime, I thought I’d close out today (barring breaking news) with a random question. We’ve discussed burgers here before, but a Twitter conversation got me thinking about it again. California is ride or die with In-N-Out, and naturally there is a lot of push-back from those...

David West: How Warriors big man provided spark off bench at age 37

The Chronicle is reviewing the season of each Warriors player after the team’s second straight championship run. David West’s teammates have taken to calling him "Benjamin Button" because, at age 37, he was not only still playing. He got better. In his second season with Golden State, West averaged more minutes, points, rebounds and blocks than he did in 2016-17. His shooting clip of 57.1 percent was easily a career-best. Hardly considered a prototypical interior defender, West was tied for 37th in the NBA with 1.03...

Raiders only non-playoff team in top ten of Madden ‘19

The ratings continue to come out for the Madden ‘19 video game which is really ‘18, but they put them out like new cars, labeling them with the year after. Earlier today some of the ratings leaked for each team’s top players. Here are the Raiders. Now we see the ratings for each team as compared to the other 31. Among them, the Raiders look pretty good, with a cumulative grade of 81, which is tied for 8th best in the NFL with the Cowboys and Titans.
