The NBA Summer league is a wrap, and the Warriors went undefeated. Does that mean anything, and which players stood out? NBA Insider Matt Steinmetz says the Warriors roster is basically set -- so, is this a playoff team? Chat with Matt, today at 1 p.m.!
The "feud" between LeBron James and Kyrie Irving is shrouded in mystery with media reports and veiled responses clouding the truth.
But James' former Cavs teammate Drew Gooden has a solution, telling TMZ that either Irving needs to be traded or the two superstars need to throw down in a fight.
"That's the only way," Gooden said.
Gooden cited the Cleneland's addition of Derrick Rose as the reason for Irving's unrest, although reports of Irving's trade request came out days before Rose committed to sign with Cleveland.
"I think Kyrie hot cause they went and got Derrick Rose without his consent," Gooden said. "That might have got Kyrie a little hot."
Gooden, 35, averaged 11 points, 7.1 rebounds and 25.5 minutes per game over his 14-year NBA career, which ended after playing 30 games for Washington in the 2015-16 season.
JaVale McGee isn't going anywhere.
McGee will re-sign with the Warriors, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.
Soon after the news surfaced on Twitter, JaVale posted on Instagram:
Golden State could only offer the big man the minimum of $2.1 million.
In 77 games (10 starts) with the Warriors last season, he averaged 6.1 points and 3.2 rebounds.
McGee appeared in 16 of the Warriors' 17 playoff games (he did not see action in Game 5 of the NBA Finals), averaging 5.9 points and 3.0 rebounds while shooting over 73 percent from the field.
As of now, Golden State has 15 players with guaranteed contracts:
McGee was reportedly unhappy with the Warriors for giving their entire $5.2 taxpayer mid-level exception to Nick Young.
The 29-year old reportedly met with the Clippers and Kings, and was seeking a contract above the minimum.
