Warriors re-sign Leandro Barbosa to one-year, $2.5 million contract

Barbosa was a key member of the Warriors' second unit during their championship run, but re-signing him will cost the franchise in taxes. The Warriors continue the offseason by keeping another member of the championship team for next season. According to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN, Golden State and Barbosa have agreed to terms on a one-year deal worth $2.5 million in the 2015-16 season. Leandro Barbosa will return to the Warriors on a 1-year, $2.5 million deal — Ramona Shelburne (@ramonashelburne) July 6, 2015 Barbosa signed a one-year vet minimum deal last season and provided great...

Orlando, Portland are among teams with cap space to absorb David Lee's contract

Jeff Cheal did a thorough team-by-team look at the most likely candidates to trade for David Lee as free agency started. With many of the big free agent moves done — or presumably so — we take a look at who has cap space left to possibly make a move for Lee. With the Golden State Warriors not being able to trade David Lee on draft night, the assumption was that the next easiest time to move his contract would be sometime after the big free agent signings went down — teams who missed out on their primary free agent targets might be willing to consider taking on Lee's contract for a...

NBA free agency 2015: What the Spurs signing LaMarcus Aldridge means for the Warriors

The path to repeating as NBA champions just got more difficult for the Warriors with the Spurs agreeing to terms with unrestricted free agent LaMarcus Aldridge. In the beginning of free agency, the Golden State Warriors seemed to be maintaining their considerable advantage over the rest of the league without making any splashy moves. As Mike Prada of SB Nation has written, "The L.A. Clippers are screwed with DeAndre Jordan." With the L.A. Lakers and Sacramento Kings doing very little on the free agency improvement front, the 2016 Pacific Division title appeared to be the Warriors' to lose...

If David Lee is traded, who can realistically take him on?

We extensively break down the David Lee trade market across the NBA pre-Free Agency. Who has the pieces to make the deal work? NOTE: I have attempted to write this article many times, however with the free agent frenzy going on, the David Lee trade market changes by the minute. As I post this, I'm sure five transactions are going on that might change the possible suitors for Lee, but we are going to give it a shot. With the free agent negotiating period going crazy this week, the Golden State Warriors currently sit salary cap-locked and dreaming about players outside of their price...

2014-2015 Season Review: David Lee, Forgotten Man

Once upon a time, he came to save this franchise... David Lee entered 2014-2015 as the presumptive Golden State Warriors starter at power forward, despite growing evidence and rumblings that Draymond Green had become the superior player. But the all-star forward pulled his hamstring before the season began, giving Green all the space he needed to take the role and run. For the remainder of the Warriors' Championship campaign, things never got too much better for the veteran, Lee. It's easy to spin the narrative that he grew frustrated by being benched for the first time in Golden State,...

2015 NBA Free Agency: Draymond Green agrees to deal to stay with Golden State Warriors

So much for the homecoming. The Golden State Warriors took care of business and secured the services of Draymond Green on the second day of free agency, with Yahoo Sports' Marc J. Spears initially breaking the news that both parties agreed to a deal, and Grantland's Zach Lowe later reporting that both parties agreed to a 5 year, $82 million contract with no options. Piston fans were hopeful that Green would consider leaving the Championship-winning Warriors for his homestate team, and that the Warriors wouldn't match an offersheet, especially with news that Green had broken off talks...

Poll: Which team's offer sheet will Draymond Green sign?

2015 NBA free agency rumors: Draymond Green, Golden State Warriors break negotiations

Versatile Warriors forward Draymond Green is a restricted free agent this summer and has opted to test the market by open discussions with other teams instead of accepting Golden State's first offer. After a season in which he was runner-up in both the Defensive Player of the Year and Most Improved Player awards, he's a prime candidate for a max contract regardless of whose offer sheet he accepts.The Warriors and Draymond break off negotiations!http://sports.yahoo.com/news/sources--draymond-green-breaks-off-talks-with-warriors--for-now-191127051.html

2015 NBA Free Agency: Draymond Green breaks off talks with Warriors

Warriors still have all the leverage, but what does Detroit have to lose in pursuing Green? Nothing. Draymond Green has broken off talks with the Golden State Warriors and is open to meeting with other suitors immediately, according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Even with this somewhat surprising development, the Warriors still hold all the cards. The worst that could happen, if they are, indeed, hell bent on keeping him, is that he signs a maximum offer sheet somewhere else and they are forced to match it. That being said, why go through any of this drama if you already know your ultimate...

Winning with kindness: The Golden State Warriors look towards sustained success

The Golden State Warriors​ are proving that you can win championships AND have friends. Sorry, Kobe Bryant​. What is success? Is it a single moment of energy and passion? Some blinding second that sears your understanding of life? Or is success something much more subtle? A job well done for a sustained period of time? I've been coming to grips with the fact that the Golden State Warriors are the champions of the NBA. Coming to grips with the fact that they seem poised to compete at a high level for a long time. There will be no Oklahoma City type fuck ups. They're not trading away...

NBA Free Agency 2015: Warriors tender qualifying offer to Ognjen Kuzmic, but not Justin Holiday

The Golden State Warriors did not extend a qualifying offer to Justin Holiday, making him an unrestricted free agent. Besides Draymond Green, the Warriors have a few other players of their own who are free agents this summer. Rusty Simmons of The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Golden State extended a qualifying offer to Ognjen Kuzmic but bypassed Justin Holiday's offer. The Warriors extended a qualifying offer to Ognjen Kuzmic, but they did not do the same with Justin Holiday. Kuzmic becomes a restriced FA. — Rusty Simmons (@Rusty_SFChron) June 30, 2015 The Warriors will have...

NBA Free Agency 2015: Warriors pick up team option on Marreese Speights

Marreese Speights was one of the most productive bigs off the bench this season. After averaging a career high 10.4 points per game, veteran Marreese Speights will return to the championship Golden State Warriors for next season. According to Rusty Simmons of The San Francisco Chronicle, the Warriors exercised their team option on Speights for the 2015-16 season. As Warriors GM Bob Myers said he was "inclined" to do, the Warriors have exercised their team option on Marreese Speights for 15-16. — Rusty Simmons (@Rusty_SFChron) June 29, 2015 Speights who owns the nickname 'Mo...

2015 NBA Draft results: Numerous undrafted players available & Warriors' Summer League options

There are a handful players of players who could possibly fill Summer League rosters or D-League affiliates. Players who didn't hear their name called at the NBA Draft have a chance to latch onto a Summer League roster. With a number of teams swiftly picking up the phone and getting commitments from undraftees, the collection is shrinking. However, Golden State will still have a chance to search for gems in the remaining patch. An example was James Michael McAdoo who played on the Warriors' Summer League roster and earned himself a spot on the 15-man roster after training camp. Shuttling...

2015 NBA Draft recap: Surprise Picks... NO BLOCKBUSTERS!!!

The Warriors grabbed Kevon Looney with the 30th pick in the NBA Draft and didn't trade David Lee. With the last pick in the first round of the NBA Draft, the Golden State Warriors had UCLA's Kevon Looney slip into their hands. Golden State could afford to take a gamble on Looney and decided to take forward despite injury concerns regarding his hip. We saw a few surprising picks that shaped how the lottery portion of the draft pan out but what was shocking was the lack of big trades considering the hype and rumors that spread prior to the draft. Nevertheless, we breakdown some of the draft...

Golden State Warriors select UCLA's Kevon Looney with the 30th pick in the 2015 NBA Draft

After rumors about possibly trading the 30th pick along with David Lee, the Warriors ended up using it to draft a promising young talent. The Golden State Warriors have selected Kevon Looney with the 30th pick in the 2015 NBA Draft to close out the first round. With David Lee possibly on the move this offseason and Marreese Speights having a team option, adding a post player could end up being of great value to the team. Looney, in particular, brings the possibility of developing into a player that brings a nice combination of offensive rebounding ability and outside shooting touch over...

NBA Draft 2015: What will the Warriors do?

Last draft, Commissioner Adam Silver selected Isaiah Austin with the NBA's pick in a classy move. What will be the defining moment this year? The day has finally arrived as we await the Golden State Warriors' decision on who they select with the 30th pick (if they keep it) and whether they have angled themselves for a David Lee trade or have a plan to move up in the draft. With a flurry of rumors busting around the league during the last couple days, it wouldn't be a surprise to witness a ton of player movement tonight. This draft will be exciting for the Warriors who have an opportunity...
