The Warriors are expected to sign swingman Al Thornton, who was selected with the No. 14 pick by the L.A. Clippers in the 2007 NBA draft.Thornton was traded to the Washington Wizards last February as part of a four-team trade. The Wizards announced on Tuesday that they had waived Thornton after coming to an agreement on a contract buyout.

Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson will not repeat as the NBA All-Star Game's 3-point shootout champion.
In need of 19 points, Thompson managed only 18 -- that allowed Kemba Walker to advance into the semifinals.
Houston's Eric Gordon had the high score of the first round. He went on to win the championship -- besting Kyrie Irving.
Thompson has made 182 3-pointers this season which ranks him fifth in the league.
Kyrie Irving became a hot topic at All-Star weekend when the Cavs star point guard said he believes planet Earth is flat. No, really, he did.
And it looks like Irving may not be alone. Speaking to the media Saturday, Draymond Green made it known he may be a flat-earth truther too.
"I don't know. I haven't done enough research, but it may be flat," Green said.
For those calling Irving's theory of a flat earth crazy, Green is looking at it in a much different way.
"I wouldn't necessarily say crazy though," he continued with. "It's just his opinion. It's hard to call someone's opinion crazy, that's what he thinks.
"Who’s to say that picture [from NASA] is telling the truth? I can make a round picture with my iPhone today, on the panoramic camera, and make it look round. So, I don’t know. I’m not saying I think it’s flat or round, I don’t know, but it could be.”
Green didn't say definitively that the earth is flat like Irving did, but he sure wouldn't say it's round.
