Matt Steinmetz:
Site having difficulty so Chat moved to here if anyone interested. Ask in 140 characters or less, and I'll answer in 140 or lessFrom @Ciscoskid:
Chances Monta gets moved during the season? Can Biedrins and D Lee actually play together?Matt Steinmetz:
Monta not going anywhere till trade deadline, at earliest. Skeptical about LeeBiedrins but open-mindedFrom @4EVER_D_HOP:
How does Jeff Adrien look and does he have a chance at making the 15 man roster? Matt Steinmetz:
Smart giving away nothing when it comes to 15th spot. But I get impression Adrien, Goodridge have been solidFrom @BobSmithson2002:
Is Biedrins healthy?Matt Steinmetz:
Yes. And looks stronger than he has in past.From @power88ranger:
Do you think Jeremy Lin has a chance to be the backup point guard?Matt Steinmetz:
Lin will not be the backup PG. R.Williams will initiate offense before Lin will.From @CAkiwi18:
Any future additions to coaching staff planned?Matt Steinmetz:
No, they're all set.From @walzmart:
giants beat braves, phillies beat giants?Matt Steinmetz:
Sounds about right.From @kenbot4000:
what can we realistically expect from DWright? Who will be our back up 2 guard?Matt Steinmetz:
Wright has chance to impact games in a way Azubuike, Maggette didn't -- at defensive end. backup two: R.WilliamsC.Bell
From @distracteddavid:
does monta look any stronger to help him guard bigger 2's?Matt Steinmetz:
Actually, Monta said on media day he weighed less than he did last year at same time: last year 192; this year 185. From @CAkiwi18:
What's the deal with this little twitter war you have with Dibley?Matt Steinmetz:
That's Mr. Verified to you.From @RobertRowell:
A lot at stake with Udoh's injury. Why the confusion in the timeline and explanations?Matt Steinmetz:
Confusion over injury? Yes. Confusion over timeline? No. 6 months.From @bulldog_drew:
who do you see as the best pure shooter on the team?Matt Steinmetz:
Not even close. Curry.From @usdagradeameat:
does riley have the cajones to cut Lin if need arises?Matt Steinmetz:
I don't think it will come to that. Lin will go to D-League if need be.From @joshieruss:
Just read that Vlad has moved ahead of BWright on the depth chart. Truth to that? Will they move Wright to SF?Matt Steinmetz:
I don't know about that. As long as B.Wright's healthy, he's going to play. I'd be surprised if B.Wright isn't in rotation.Assuming, of course, he's healthy.From @kishorea:
Who's the better shooter: Curry, Morrow, Belinelli (the Summer League version)Matt Steinmetz:
Morrow.From @petehare920:
do u think there's another acquisition 2 be made?Matt Steinmetz:
Yes, but not for little while. They'll see what they have.From @usdagradeameat:
is lin outplaying anyone in camp?Matt Steinmetz:
Reality is we see very little of camp. But short answer I'm sensing is: No.BTW, MrVerified himself, @dandibley, on @chronlivecsn tonight. Trying to figure out what he's bringing to table.From @joshmcd:
How does Carney look? Is he going to get the bulk of the backup minutes at the 3?Matt Steinmetz:
That's a good question. Don't have a feel for that. But will look better into it.From @cruzkontrol:
Who is the lead candidate for backup PG?Matt Steinmetz:
Reggie WilliamsC.Bell.From @RobertRowell:Reason to worry about the status of the sale if the Pistons sell before the Warriors?Matt Steinmetz:
Different circumstances, but I'd say No. Don't think that will happen, either.From @Aknoxxx:
will the warriors have a better or worse record then last year?Matt Steinmetz:
Better. If they don't, something went wrong.From @MartinDV_phan:
d. wright got a shot at most improved?Matt Steinmetz:
Doubtful. That award goes to players who jump offensively.From @SuperDuperDeets:
of all the players the Warriors let go this summer who do you think we should have kept and why? My opinion @blackboipachino (Anthony Morrow)Matt Steinmetz:
I'd say Morrow, too. But Ws were in tough position with him. 4 million not an insignificant number.From @KRISTOMUSIC:
you think they'll have Lee and Andris on the floor at the same time?Matt Steinmetz:
That's plan, but we'll see.From @neetruofnet:
what was the issue with pargo? i know he's injured now, but was it money?Matt Steinmetz:
Issue was probably more about knee.From @nicksuh:Biggest Warrior strengthweakness as they're currently constructed?Matt Steinmetz:
That's a great question. I think honestly ... we don't know yet. D.WrightLeehealthy Biedrins make team very differentFrom @Coop374:
do Biedrins' FTs still look ugly?Matt Steinmetz:
They look better. He's losinglost the hitch.From @stiffythekid:
Any shot for @stephencurry30, Monta or DLee to make an all star team? Or Beans to win comeback player?Matt Steinmetz:
Gonna be tough. I'd say Lee has best chance simply because West has lots of quality in backcourtFrom @kenbot4000:
what do you think of b. Wright?Matt Steinmetz:
I actually like the idea of him playing small forward defensively. Think that could be a strength. He & DWright give you lengthFrom @joshtobin:
Are you confident Lee can be effective @ the 4? Seen any chemistry btwn him and CurryEllis?Matt Steinmetz:
I think he can be effective ... the question is will he be significantly less effective there than at five?From @KRISTOMUSIC:
one last ? Your thoughts on Nelly leavin?Matt Steinmetz:
Something that needed to be done to move forward.From @chunkybearcub:
I seriously couldnt care less if Biedrins shoots 50 FT, as long as he has his confidence back around the rim, you agree?Matt Steinmetz:
I do agree.From @BH3ARD:
does it seem that players are happier now that nelly is gone?Matt Steinmetz:
I wouldn't necessarily say "happier." I just think they're glad there was resolution. Things too erratic before.It's obvious one of Larry Riley's offseason priorities was getting healthy players. http:tinyurl.com2cvp2w9
From @AndySpiteri:
do you think Keith Smart will actually be the a long term answer as head coach or will it be one year and done?
Matt Steinmetz:
It's going to be tough for him. Even if he has a nice year and Ws go 38-44, will there be groundswell of support for him?From @BigMeezy34:
besides the pick and roll, what other ways do you think Lee will have to score.Matt Steinmetz:
Fastbreak, offensive rebound. He'll have to prove he can be effective posting up.
