Warriors sign Briante Weber to second 10-day contract

The Warriors signed guard Brianté Weber to a second 10-day contract, the team announced on Tuesday.

Weber, who initially signed a 10-day contract with Golden State on Feb. 4, has appeared in four games for the Warriors.

On Monday night in Denver, Weber registered two points, one rebound, three assists, one steal and one block in 24 minutes.

Prior to joining Golden State, Weber had appeared in 31 games (all starts) this season with the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the NBA Development League, averaging 16.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 7.4 assists and 3.26 steals in 36.8 minutes and garnering NBA D-League Player of the Month honors in January.

Weber, 24, has appeared in 11 career NBA games (four starts) over two seasons with Memphis, Miami and Golden State, averaging 3.5 points, 2.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.00 steals in 18.5 minutes per game.

Report: Warriors sign former Pacers forward

The Warriors reportedly added a player on Wednesday morning.

Golden State signed Georges Niang to a partially guaranteed contract, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Warriors already have 15 players with fully guaranteed contracts for next season.

It's possible that Niang ends up signing a two-way contract and spend the majority of the season in Santa Cruz.

Former Oregon big man Chris Boucher inked a two-way deal with the Warriors back in mid-July.

The Pacers selected Niang in the second round (50th overall) of the 2016 draft.

Last year, the power forward appeared in 23 games for Indiana.

He also played in six contests with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants -- averaging 19 points, 7.2 rebounds and 3.3 assists.

The Pacers waived Niang last month.

As a senior at Iowa State, he averaged 20.2 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.3 assists, while shooting 39 percent from deep.

Steve Nash lashes out against Donald Trump in profanity-filled tweet

Donald Trump spoke to the media on Tuesday afternoon about the situation in Charlottesville.

He said the following:

"I think there is blame on both sides. What about the 'alt-left' that came charging at, as you say, the 'alt-right,' do they have any semblance of guilt? What about the fact they came charging with clubs in hands, swinging clubs, do they have any problem? I think they do.

"You had a group on one side that was bad and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent. Nobody wants to say it, but I will say it right now."

Shortly thereafter, Steve Nash tweeted the following:

"To defend white supremacists and then slang his shi**y as* grape juice pretty much sums the man up."

The end.
