Anthony Edwards linked to Golden State Warriors in mock draft

“I think I’m the No. 1 draft pick in this class, but everyone has their opinion,” Edwards said. “And I’m sure if you asked the other guys at the top, James [Wiseman], LaMelo [Ball], they think they’re No. 1, too. None of us are working to hear our name called second. We all want to […]

Report: Kevin Durant to sign 1+1 contract for less than max with Warriors

This sets up Durant to re-sign for the Non-Bird Exception, which would pay him $31,848,120 next season (120% of his salary this season). His projected max salary is more than $35 million, but Golden State would need cap space to offer it. This route allows the Warriors to stay over the cap and maintain Iguodala’s […]

Warriors mailbag: What’s Golden State’s best-case scenario this offseason?

I’ve been asked some variation of this question a few times in recent months, even though there’s nearly no chance the Warriors shop Green this offseason. I understand that Green underwhelmed this past season, but Golden State is confident that he’ll return to his dominant ways once Curry and Thompson return to the lineup. Few […]

Report: Warriors concerned about luxury-tax cost of re-signing Andre Iguodala

Kevin Durant is reportedly set to do the Warriors a huge favor – forgo a maximum salary, which would allow them to re-sign Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston and use the taxpayer mid-level exception ($5,192,000) rather than the room exception ($4,328,000).

Report: Andre Iguodala to ‘seriously consider’ leaving Warriors in free agency

Durant is reportedly willing to accept less than his max, which would allow the Warriors to maintain Iguodala’s Bird Rights. They could pay Iguodala any amount up to the max – and have no mechanism to adequately replace if he leaves. If they somehow lost him, Durant would probably want his max, creating additional complications.

Report: At least seven teams will try to pick off free agent Andre Iguodala from Warriors

Iguodala, 33, is coming off a four-year, $48 million deal and the Warriors would like to retain him in that ballpark of $12 million a year or a little less. The question is the years, Golden State may want to do two, Iguodala will want four, and the likely will settle at three, but that […]

Free Agency primer: Top 25 free agents to watch

7) Otto Porter. A lot of teams like the Washington Wizards’ wing and he’s the kind of player a team with cap space — such as Brooklyn or Sacramento — likely try to poach with an oversized offer. While John Wall would rather have Paul George, the Wizards don’t have the space for PG13 (unless […]

Why Donald Trump’s Campaign Could Prove to Be the Death of the Christian Right

“All of the culture warriors — Jerry Falwell, Dr. Dobson, Pat Robertson, Chuck Colson — to my knowledge, they were all born in the late ’20s and the ’30s. And I would say, generationally, they were people that were coming out of a social structure that their belief was rather normative,” Daly said. “And when […]
