2013-14 Golden State Warriors Season Review: David Lee

Today's Season in Review covers one David Lee, who, apparently, is an actual basketball player and not just a controversial set of highly debated statistics and voluminous contract figures in theoretical trades for Kevin Love. Who knew? No, I definitely checked with verifiable sources (the internet) — David Lee exists, much as he always has. His status hasn't changed all that much in the past few years: he still produces lots of points and rebounds, is questioned for his defense, and makes a ton of money. Also still has a faux hawk, probably. The fact that I barely remember Lee's...

Monday evening open thread: Las Vegas Summer league championship at 6 p.m. PST

The Las Vegas Summer League championship is on NBA TV at 6 p.m. PST on NBA TV. Thus, an evening open thread. Tonight on NBA TV at 6 p.m. PST will be the last live NBA basketball of any kind that you'll see until about October. It's the summer league championship and the Golden State Warriors won't be there to defend their title, but it's basketball. And we supposedly like actual basketball played on an actual court around here. Nobody seems to know what the Sacramento Kings are doing with their regular season roster, but at least they'll have a shot at calling themselves summer league...

Kevin Love trade rumors: Klay Thompson seeking a max extension, Andrew Wiggins' contract negotiations

There isn't really a whole lot of new information out there about the Kevin Love sweepstakes, but if you missed the latest gossip this weekend we'll help to catch you up. Sam Amick of USA Today had a pretty detailed account of why the Golden State Warriors won't trade Klay Thompson yesterday, that mostly confirmed (or re-affirmed) things that have already been rumored or discussed. The Warriors are concerned about the defensive trade-offs of giving up ace Klay Thompson to acquire Kevin Love, who isn't known for his defensive ability. Thompson is seeking a max contract, which was a given...

2014 Vegas Summer League recap: Could Nemanja Nedovic's time with the Golden State Warriors be running out?

After a rather quiet summer league performance, Nemanja Nedovic's chances to prove himself with the Golden State Warriors could be running out. As just about everyone noticed during the Golden State Warriors' stint in the 2014 Las Vegas Summer League, second-year guard Nemanja Nedovic didn't do much to inspire confidence in his talent. And that might have financial consequences for Nedovic: Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News makes the case that there are multiple reasons to believe that the Warriors could decide not to pick up Nedovic's third-year option. The decision: The Warriors...

Bucks 79, Warriors 74: Bucks head home with win in Summer League finale

Jabari Parker saved his best Summer League game for his last game, and the Bucks head into the dregs of summer with a little bit of optimism. The Bucks closed out their Summer League trip Friday with a victory. I'm serious, they totally beat the Golden State Warriors 79-74. It was technically the first Bucks win since Apr. 11th, and it ended on a few strong plays from their best player available. I say available because Giannis Antetokounmpo was not with the team. He had left Vegas a few days early to head back to Greece to train with the Greek national team in preparation for the FIBA...

Warriors finish 2-3 in 2014 LVSL; Kiwi Gardner shines

In another rather listless effort from the Golden State Warriors, their Summer League campaign ended with a thud. But there were bright spots regardless, namely Kiwi Gardner. "One day {Coach Casey Hill} told me we weren't going to work out in Santa Cruz but we were going to ride up to Golden State and workout. And then {Kirk Lacob} just came over and told me about Summer League." The footage of D-League fan favorite Kiwi Gardner blew up when the rare honest reaction nearly took out Kirk Lacob's torso. On a roster with so many players, there wasn't much of a chance Gardner would find much...

Las Vegas Summer League preview: Warriors conclude summer play against Bucks

Win or lose, this is the end. #11 Golden State Warriors (2-2) vs. #21 Milwaukee Bucks (0-4) 1:30 p.m. PST Thomas & Mack Center - Las Vegas, NV TV: NBA TV | Online: NBA Summer League Live At a time of year when wins and losses definitely don't really matter, the final score of the Golden State Warriors' game against the Milwaukee Bucks today is even less relevant. After losing to the #22 Atlanta Hawks in the first round of the Las Vegas Summer League championship tournament, the Warriors find themselves facing the Bucks in the consolation bracket today. Win or lose, the Warriors will...

Warriors 2014-15 win projections with and without Kevin Love

Let's recap where I stand in terms of understanding the Kevin Love situation: The Cavs have loosened their stance on trading Wiggins. LeBron James is in Kevin Love's ear like Lance Stephenson was in LeBron James' ear. The Warriors front office Voltron of minds still seems to be leaning towards not trading Klay Thompson (note: I almost went with Power Rangers metaphor there). (Note: Nate posted a rumor just this morning that suggests now the Warriors are willing to trade Klay, but who the hell knows at this point.) On the face of it, #3 seems outrageous. Kevin Love is the stretchiest of...

NBA trade rumor: Warriors willing to trade Klay Thompson in package for Kevin Love

In yet another twist, the Warriors have apparently improved their offer to include Klay Thompson after the Cavs made it known that they're willing to offer Andrew Wiggins. The Golden State Warriors are rumored to be willing to include Klay Thompson along with Harrison Barnes and David Lee in an offer for Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love, according to a report by Yannis Koutroupis of Basketball Insiders last night. David Lee and Harrison Barnes are expected to be a part of the deal as well. No trade is imminent, but the Warriors are willing to do whatever it takes to land Love...

Golden State Warriors make Klay Thompson an Available Trade Asset

Basketball Insiders is reporting that Kevin Love would be willing to exercise his option if traded to the Golden State Warriors. Yannis Koutroupis, a Senior Editor at Basketball Insiders, is reporting that the Golden State Warriors are increasing their efforts to land Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star forward Kevin Love. Koutroupis reports the following: The Warriors have been trying to acquire Love without letting go of Thompson, but have come off of that stance because Love is willing to exercise his option for the 2015-16 season and put off becoming a free agent next summer-- according to...

NBA trade rumors: Cavs willing to trade Andrew Wiggins for Kevin Love, Warriors stand firm on Klay Thompson

While the Cavs are rumored to be willing to include rookie Andrew Wiggins in a trade for Timberwolves star Kevin Love, the Warriors remain steadfast in their desire to hang on to Klay Thompson. What changed for the Cavs? LeBron James, of course. The Cleveland Cavaliers have reportedly decided to include Andrew Wiggins in a trade for Minnesota Timberwolves star Kevin Love, as first reported this morning by Bob Finnan of The News-Herald & Morning Journal and confirmed now by multiple others. New talks. #Twolves have reason to believe he's in play. Not imminent yet. RT @MattTheStat1213...

2014 NBA summer league result: Warriors comeback falls short in 68-65 loss to Hawks

The Warriors' hopes of repeating as Las Vegas Summer League champions came to an end with a failed late comeback attempt during a 68-65 loss to the Hawks today. There are things that second-year guard Nemanja Nedovic does well. He hasn't allowed himself to get "sped up" this summer, playing at a good pace and smartly changing gears when needed. He has nice touch on his passes. He's decisive and, at times, seems to see plays develop well. Nedovic is not a bad player, relative to summer league competition; he also just never showed that ability to impose his will on summer league competition...

Warriors Dynasty falls to Los Angeles Lakers in overtime

After 16 straight victories spanning 2010-2014, the Golden State Warriors finally fell to the Los Angeles Lakers at the buzzer in overtime, 89-88. I'm still not sure how to recap a Summer League game. On one hand, you want to give credence to the fact they're all playing for roster spots either in the NBA or somewhere overseas. On the other, the pace and level of play is so bad, it's tough not to ridicule the entire thing if you're searching for tangible evidence of NBA talent. Other than that, this was a fantastic game if only because the ending was so unintentionally awesome. Here are...

2014 NBA free agency rumor: Baron Davis interested in making comeback with Warriors, Clippers

Jared Zwerling of Bleacher Report reported earlier today that Baron Davis is working toward a comeback and is interested in returning to the Warriors. The other night I was with a friend in an Oakland bar that had three large posters on the wall: Dennis Eckersley, Jerry Rice, and Baron Davis. Not that the poster selection in one bar represents the definitive list of Bay Area sports legends, but it was still striking because it's hard to think of another player in my lifetime who has made more of an impact on the Bay Area sports landscape in less time. We've already discussed this before,...

Warriors guards Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson selected for USA Basketball training camp

Warriors guards Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson will be the only NBA teammates participating in the upcoming USA Basketball training camp. Golden State Warriors stars Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson have been named to the 19-player USA Men's National Team training camp roster, which was formally announced by USA Basketball earlier today. Curry and Thompson will be the only teammates at the camp, though hopefully Kevin Love makes it a trio by the time the actual World Cup rolls around though they probably have different paths to actually making the roster. From that group of 19 players that...
