Warriors' roster, schedule set for 2012 Summer League

The Warriors announced their NBA Las Vegas summer-league roster on Thursday, and, as expected, their three rookies Harrison Barnes, Festus Ezeli and Draymond Green will participate. The Warriors fourth first-round selection, Ognjen Kuzmic, will not play for the team.Also participating for the Warriors are second-year guard Charles Jenkins, second-year forward Chris Wright and second-year forward Jeremy Tyler.Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson, who is in Vegas practicing with the U.S. Select team, is also on the roster, though it is unknown whether or not he will play. Warriors general manager Bob Myers said last week that nobody is going to stop Klay if he wants to play, but that the team wasnt going to require him to do so.Myers said Kuzmic, who was selected with the No. 52 pick, will skip summer league because its too quick of a turnaround for him to come to the United States, then return to play for his national team of Bosnia and Herzegovina.Completing the Warriors roster are: Old Dominions Kent Bazemore, St. Johns Justin Burrell, Tulsas Justin Hurtt, Ohio States Dallas Lauderdale, New Mexico States Wendell McKines, Wichita States Joe Ragland, Cal State Fullertons Frank Robinson, Fairfields Rakim Sanders, Oregons Garrett Sim, North Dakota States Andre Smith, DePauls Dar Tucker, Villanovas Maalik Wayans, Missouri States Kyle Weems and Clemsons Andre Young.ROSTER:

John Wall commits to Wizards long term with huge contract extension


John Wall commits to Wizards long term with huge contract extension

The Washington Wizards' long-term future is now a lot clearer, as superstar point guard John Wall agreed to terms on a four-year contract worth $170 million. David Aldridge first reported the news.

Wall, 26, re-ups with the Wizards through the 2022-23 season. By the time it expires he will be 32 years old, meaning the Wizards have locked him up for the majority if not all of his prime.

Wall was able to earn the dollar amount he did in part because of his selection to third team All-NBA for the 2016-17 season. Under the recently installed collective bargaining agreement, honors like All-NBA and Defensive Player of the Year allow players to earn more money on contract extensions.

The Wizards drafted Wall first overall in 2010 out of the University of Kentucky. In his seven NBA seasons since, Wall has blossomed into one of the NBA's best players with career averages of 18.8 points, 9.2 assists and 4.4 rebounds per game. He has been an All-Star in each of the past four seasons and is a one-time All-Defensive team selection.

Shortly thereafter, a Twitter account with over 296,000 followers tweeted the following:

[RATTO: Kyrie Irving needs to be traded to one place, and one place only]

A little over an hour later, Kevin Love responded:

On Tuesday night, Irving told Sports Illustrated the Cavs are "in a very peculiar place."

In the weeks between Cleveland's Game 5 loss to the Warriors and the start of free agency, Love was reportedly on the trading block.

The Cavs and GM David Griffin "mutually" parted ways three days before the NBA Draft.

Cleveland is finally finalizing a deal with assistant GM Coby Altman to become the permanent general manager, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

LeBron James can opt out and become a free agent next summer, and there is already speculation about where he may go.

Man. The last six weeks in Cleveland have been wild...
