2016 NBA free agency primer: Key dates, Kevin Durant's decision timeline, Warriors free agents

The free agent negotiating period begins at 9:01 p.m. PST with the Warriors being the first team to talk to Kevin Durant after his meeting with the Thunder. After months (years?) of speculation, the Golden State Warriors will finally get to sit down with unrestricted free agent Kevin Durant to discuss the possibility of him joining a championship-caliber trio in Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson. Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical just tweeted tonight that Durant will make his decision by July 4, which is big news given the previous expectation that it would be more like July...

OKC meets with Kevin Durant; Warriors up next

Warriors All-Stars Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson are scheduled to join the Warriors’ top brass in New York on Friday for a meeting that they hope will lure Durant away from the only franchise he’s ever known. Durant has played each of his nine seasons for the Thunder, winning four scoring titles and earning seven All-Star nods. Thunder assistant general manager Troy Weaver held open a door at the Chesapeake Energy Arena, so it wouldn’t lock behind him as he and GM Sam Presti welcomed Durant, his agent Rich Kleiman and his business manager Charlie Bell on Thursday...

2015-16 Warriors Season Review: Marreese Speights, a tale of two seasons

After a poor start, Mo Speights soared in calendar year 2016 once he started playing more minutes. It would be great to see Mo back next season, particularly if he improves some pieces to his game, but can the Warriors afford to bring him back? It was a tale of two seasons for Marreese Speights, otherwise known as Mo Buckets. After starting out cold with inconsistent minutes, Speights eventually earned the green light to shoot threes while showing the league why Stephen Curry gave Mo the title of "biggest two-guard in the league." Speights got out of the gate slowly this season, falling out...

Warriors’ pursuit of Kevin Durant beginning

Warriors’ pursuit of Kevin Durant beginning An overwhelming number of stories will be written and told about the Warriors’ pursuit of Kevin Durant during the next week, but the franchise’s chase of the one of the NBA’s all-time greatest scorers started in earnest two years ago. During Team USA’s 2014 training camp in Las Vegas, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, then-New Orleans head coach Monty Williams and Durant were almost always the last men on the UNLV court — staying hours after the rest of the roster. Sometimes the four would even go back to the gym late at night, refining...

Three Warriors make USA basketball Olympic roster

Despite absence of stars Stephen Curry and LeBron James, Warriors guard Klay Thompson says Team USA should still be favored to win basketball gold in Rio.

Draymond Green embraces chance to represent country

Green is one of three Warriors on the U.S. roster, joining soon-to-be free-agent forward Harrison Barnes and shooting guard Klay Thompson. Point guard Stephen Curry, who played on the U.S. squads in 2010 and 2014, is spending this summer recovering from ankle, knee and elbow ailments. Green is one of two second-round picks to make the team, joining Clippers center DeAndre Jordan. “I’m anxious to get on the court, and along with my great coaching staff, get to work,” United States head coach Mike Krzyzewski said in a news release. … Green is among the best defenders, having...

NBA Draft 2016: Why Malcolm Brogdon is a strong fit for the Golden State Warriors

Looking at mock drafts and other analysis, the Warriors are widely expected to take a big with the 30th pick in the draft. But in SBN's Blogger Mock draft, Golden State of Mind went with a perimeter player who is arguably more NBA-ready than any other player available late in the first round. The Golden State Warriors are sitting on the sill of their championship window with an experienced, albeit young, core that they'll have locked up for years once they re-sign Stephen Curry in 2017. Coming off of consecutive NBA Finals appearances and a 73-win regular season, you'd be forgiven for...

Warriors’ Draymond Green, Klay Thompson still on board for Rio

Stephen Curry is skipping the Olympics this summer, and a Yahoo report Monday suggested LeBron James is leaning toward joining Curry on the sideline. “To have the opportunity to compete for a gold medal, that doesn’t happen every day,” Green said Monday. Green and teammate Klay Thompson are finalists for the U.S. roster (so is restricted free agent-to-be Harrison Barnes). On the day after the Warriors fell to Cleveland in Game 7 of the NBA Finals, Green and Thompson struck different tones in peering ahead. Green was unequivocal about his interest in the Olympics and philosophical...

Disappointed Warriors vow to get back to NBA Finals stage

Draymond Green wants to maintain the momentum from a special season that fell short by competing in the Rio Olympics. Klay Thompson plans to take his mind off basketball and missed chances entirely and go watch brother Trayce play baseball for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Stephen Currys toddler daughter, Riley, helped the crestfallen MVP begin to put things in perspective by telling him Its OK to lose.

Curry takes Warriors’ Finals loss ‘on the chin’

Stephen Curry didn’t need to read a newspaper or watch TV to know that the narrative following the Warriors’ epic NBA Finals collapse to Cleveland would be directed at his failures during the series. “I take it on the chin, because I know I didn’t play my best,” Curry said after his exit interview with general manager Bob Myers on Monday. Curry averaged 7.5 points fewer during the Finals than his league-leading regular-season output, the second-worst drop off for an MVP since Magic Johnson was redubbed Tragic Johnson in 1989. “Make or miss, maybe we’re having a different...

On the finish of a great Warriors season

The NBA can be a cruel mistress. The greatest regular season team of all time just learned that one the hard way. My defining memory of the 2016 NBA postseason will be Stephen Curry, isolated against a mediocre defensive big man like Enes Kanter or Kevin Love, coming down the right side of the arc, throwing out a couple of jab steps, a crossover, a little shake-and-bake ... ... and not getting any separation. It's a move we've seen a hundreds of times from his this season, and it works against any big. He needs so little space to get his shot, that no big can stay with him. The only...
