Udoh to Israel, Lin to Italy?

It appears as if Warriors forward Ekpe Udoh and guard Jeremy Lin will be heading overseas.According to a report out of Tel Aviv, Udoh has signed with Bnei Hasharon in Israel for the duration of the lockout. As for Lin, his agent said Monday that his client is poised to sign in Italy later this week.The 24-year-old Udoh is the third NBA veteran to sign with the team during the lockout. Udoh averaged 4.1 points and 3.1 rebounds per game last season for the Warriors as a rookie.The news about Udoh first emerged on Twitter from writer David Pick with Eurobasket.com. That report indicated Udoh is expected to land in Israel Tuesday and will take part in Bneis Sunday night game.Udohs former Baylor teammates LaceDarius Dunn and Tweety Carter are also members of the team. Bnie Hasharon is 1-4 in the Israeli Basketball Super League.Previously Bnei Hasharon agreed to terms with Trevor Booker and J.J. Hickson, but each has since left and returned to the United States.Roger Montgomery, Lins agent, said his client was in the final stages of signing with a team in Italy but didnt want to divulge the team at this time in case things fall through.Jeremy is a young player who needs to play, Montgomery said. Hes not a veteran guy who can afford to sit around during the lockout. He needs game competition.

Both Udoh and Lin have opt-out clauses and will return to the United States if the NBA lockout is settled.

Draymond Green reveals new Warriors banners, puts Noah Vonleh on blast

The Warriors' practice facility in San Francisco has a new look and Draymond Green is clearly a fan of one part.

On Saturday, Green posted a video to his Instagram story showing new banners of a montage to the team's 2016-17 championship run. One player who won't like the new images so much though is Blazers forward Noah Vonleh. 

Among the pictures in one of the banners is Green meeting Vonleh at the rim and rejecting him in Game 1 during Round 1 in the 2017 NBA Playoffs. In the video, Green says, "Alright Noah, watch out now," while laughing.

Because it never gets old, here's the video of the huge block.

Kevin Durant has a little advice for heckling college student: 'Get a...'

The barbs won't stop.

Even after Kevin Durant won an NBA title with the Warriors, fans won't let him forget that he left the Thunder to join the best team in the NBA.

On Saturday, a fan from New Zealand wondered if Durant was set to join his college team, which, according to him, started its season 7-0.

Durant clapped back, offering advice for the young man.

The fan wasn't done.

"What do we have to do? Be the most dominant team in the league and beat you the year before? Or do you want us to blow a 3-1 lead?" Twitter user Morgan Tiare wrote back.

Durant got the last word.

The NBA Finals MVP is clearly having fun responding to Twitter trolls this offseason.
