Warriors' Jackson to visit 49ers

Warriors coach Mark Jackson will visit 49ers headquarters in Santa Clara Wednesday, taking a look at how Jim Harbaugh runs a practice. Jackson, whom the Warriors hired in June, is going as a guest of the team.

Jackson posted the following on his Twitter account @JacksonMark13 on Tuesday:

Looking forward to taking my staff to 49er's practice 2morrow. Coach Harbaugh has done a Great job.

He also indicated with a tweet that he might be in Alameda with the Raiders.

Working on Thursday to see the Raiders and Coach Jackson. Another Great job done!
There are some similarities between Harbaugh and Jackson and their respective situations. Both are first-year coaches, both played professionally and both have dealt with a lockout in their rookie seasons.One difference, however, is that Jackson hasnt coached at any level, but Harbaugh has coached at San Diego, Stanford and now the 49ers.Jackson is expected to be made available to the media after the practice. It will be the first time since July 1 -- when the NBA lockout first started -- that Jackson will be able to address personnel issues.Jackson will not be able to comment -- according to Warriors PR -- about any aspect of the current collective bargaining agreement, still being finalized. In other words, Jackson wont be talking about which player if any the Warriors will amnesty.Still, theres a lot to ask Jackson, and as long as were talking about it what would you ask Mark Jackson? Do you want to know how hell use Stephen Curry? What his plans are for Monta Ellis? Whether or not he really believes the Warriors have the ability to be a good defensive team?Fire some questions below in the comments section, and well see if we can eventually throw them at Jackson. If not today, certainly down the road a little bit.

Warriors announce four-game preseason schedule, including two overseas

Instead of playing the usual six or seven preseason games, the Warriors will suit up for just four exhibition games.

But there is a very good reason: They are traveling overseas for two of the games.

They will play two games at Oracle Arena and two in China.

The Warriors will open the four-game slate on Sept. 30 against the Nuggets in Oakland. After that game, they will jetset to China were they will meet the Timberwolves for two games, one in Oct. 4 in Shenzen and one on Oct. 8 in Shanghai.

Once they return home, they will play their final tune-up on Oct. 13 against the Kings.

They tip off the regular season four days later against the Houston Rockets, where they will get their championship rings and raise another banner to the rafters.
