Inside the Warriors' roster

Inside the Warriors' roster

It's already been a long offseason and it sure looks like it might get longer. The Warriors haven't played for five months, and there's no telling when we'll next see them assembled together as a team.

When we last left them they had finished the season 36-46, 10 wins short of the No. 8 playoff team in the Western Conference. In other words, they've still got a ways to go.

When and if the season eventually begins, the Warriors may look different from the way they looked at the end of the last season. If the NBA and players are able to have a season or cram one in, there will be a very quick free agent frenzy, and the Warriors figure to be active there -- as much as the new CBA will allow, anyway.

But for now, this is the roster the Warriors are sitting with, including for how long each player remains under contract.

Lou Amundson, PF: One year remaining at 2.4 million. Amundson wasn't healthy for most of last year, and the Warriors need more energy off the bench from him this season.

Charlie Bell, PG: One year remaining at 4.1 million. Hard to imagine Bell will be any kind of factor. Expect the Warriors to package Bell as part of a deal or hold onto him so his 4-million-plus comes off the books at season's end.

Andris Biedrins, C: Three years remaining at 27 million. Once upon a time, this contract seemed OK. But that was before Biedrins' game went missing. Can he retrieve it?

Stephen Curry, PG: Two years remaining at 7 million. The Warriors have made it clear they want Curry as part of their long-term future. But does Curry want the Warriors?

Monta Ellis, SG: Three years remaining at 33 million. It's a simple question and one the Warriors have been wrestling with for a little while: Can the Warriors get better by trading their best player?

Charles Jenkins, SG: Unsigned rookie. Is Jenkins destined for the D-League or does he have a shot at beating out Jeremy Lin?

David Lee, PF: Five years remaining at 68.5 million. No doubt it hurts when you see the amount of money Lee is still owed. General manager Larry Riley hoped to build around Lee, but there are other voices now in the team's front office.

Jeremy Lin, PG: Unsigned second-year player. Everyone knows Warriors owner Joe Lacob had a lot to do with Lin's signing. But if Lin isn't cutting it in Year No. 2, will Lacob keep him around?

Klay Thompson, SG: Unsigned rookie. Looks to have NBA range, and seems likely to get some backup minutes at shooting guard and small forward.

Jeremy Tyler, C: Unsigned rookie. The question comes down to Tyler's motor. If he's into it and committed, he could pitch in off the bench for the Warriors. If not, he'll get plenty of playing time in Dakota.

Ekpe Udoh, PF: Three years remaining at 11.2 million. Udoh seems poised to make strides in his second year. He's gotten stronger and knows he'll consistently be in the rotation. And as the Warriors' best interior defender, coach Mark Jackson is going to use him.

Dorell Wright, SF: Two years remaining at 7.9 million. Wright's game took off last year. This year they need that -- and for him to get back to his defending ways.

Unlike Warriors, Cubs decide to go to White House; Maddon explains choice

Unlike Warriors, Cubs decide to go to White House; Maddon explains choice

WASHINGTON — Within a matter of days last November, the Cubs won a staggering World Series for the first time in 108 years and Donald Trump won a scathing election to become the 45th president.

Those two surreal worlds will collide again on Wednesday when a group of Cubs get a private White House tour that can be interpreted as a political statement, something larger than this four-game series against the Washington Nationals.

This comes less than six months after the Cubs enjoyed an East Room ceremony that became the final official event at Barack Obama’s White House, at a polarizing time when speculation centered on whether or not the Golden State Warriors would skip the traditional photo op with Trump, not wanting to make an implicit endorsement after winning another NBA title.

“You’d have to talk to the Warriors,” manager Joe Maddon said Tuesday. “To go tomorrow is out of respect to the Ricketts family and to the office and the building itself. Listen, I like the United States a lot. I like living here a lot. And I like everything that it represents a lot.

“So when you get a chance as a citizen to get to go to the White House, you go. I think you go. Whether you like the person that’s running the country or not — out of respect to the office itself — you go.

“I don’t agree with all the other banter that’s going on right now, because I have a different perspective.”

OAKLAND – The Golden State Warriors have announced the team’s roster and schedule for 2017 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. Warriors Assistant Coach/Player Development Chris DeMarco will serve as head coach of the team in Golden State’s 12th summer in Vegas, which tips off on Saturday, July 8.

Additionally, Golden State’s squad includes Jabari Brown, Elgin Cook and Alex Hamilton, who were all members of the Santa Cruz Warriors, Golden State’s NBA G League club, in 2016-17.

The Warriors, who won the inaugural Summer League title in 2013, own a 36-23 (.610) all-time record at NBA Summer League, the most wins in the history of the annual event. Teams will play three preliminary games between July 7-11 before being seeded in a tournament that begins on July 12 and concludes with the Championship Game on Monday, July 17. Each team will play a minimum of five games in Las Vegas.
