RE: NBA D-League news (WAC related)
Stu, you need to let go of this hatred of Kevon Looney. The guy is only 21 and he has been injured. There is no questioning his basketball talent when healthy. He was a McDonald's All-American and five star high school prospect. He left after one year at UCLA to become a first round pick of your Warriors. He needs to stay healthy and he needs playing time. He is going to get paid, but he needs to play.

These writers are guessing. They have the Warriors signing everyone. Let's see how everyone looks in Summer League before determining the roster. The rosters have been expanded to 17 in order to stash two players in the G League.

The NBA stretch provision for Looney could only be used for three years. He has one year on his contract plus a team option. The stretch provision is not meant for a player making $1.4 million.

By the way, the Warriors have blown through their $127 million salary target. That was easy to predict. That is even with Durant taking at least $6 million less than he was expected to take.

On Jordan Bell, I like the kid. He is very good defensive player and he brings it every night. But he is a rookie. Some of the Bay Area writers have him in the eight man rotation already. His offensive game is not that good and like every young player, he needs to develop.

Looney is closer to gone.

Warriors up to 14 with Pachulia (took the non-bird 20%)
https://twitter.com/sam_amick/status/883466978467258368

They are talking with Willie Reed if JaVale McGee signs elsewhere (he is doing his tour now, Clippers yesterday and Kings today) for a 15th. That will make a 5th center plus there is Draymond.

They are also looking for a backup point. But somebody has to go. All the local press is saying that will be Looney.

SoCalBobcat78, your "they will keep Looney" is hanging on by the barest of threads. They pretty much have to dump him this year, eat $1.4M if nobody takes him, because next year his salaray is scheduled to jump to $2.3M which has an additional Luxury tax hit of $4.6M, even if they cut him next year.

Yes they need cheap bodies, but they have two draft picks in 2018, and the way luxury tax works it escalates. This year if they dump him they have a lot more space. You don't save $1.4M now to pay $6.9M next year and $12.5M the year after for a guy who doesn't play.

Cap is off because Igoudala got more than expected, and they used the MLE. It's coming in around $135.5M ($140M in actual money, but vets minimums are counted at 3rd year player level). Luxury tax expected to be $22-25M ($45M over cap). Next year about $40M ($80M over cap). The important thing is to get below tax level in 2019-20, and they set up contracts to expire before them. One of the pieces will have to be moved in 2019-20. Probably Klay and Livingston.

Wow, just saw a NBCBA add for Warriors summer league,

"Patrick McCaw, Damien Jones, and Jordan Bell take on the Cavaliers in Summer league on your NBC Bay Area network..."

Who is the one missing from the current Warriors NBA roster?

It could be an oversight. But having worked with a few Silicon valley companies, with their periodic layoffs, and knowing this is the corporate culture Joe Lacob comes from, every missing name on the presentation was gone within a few weeks (or sooner) of the "oversight." The next 4 days, 3 summer league games, are Looney's last chance to be around for training camp this fall.

Stu, I thought this was a fair article on why Looney should be on the roster:

https://www.goldenstateofmind.com/2017/7...son-review

I particularly thought this paragraph encompasses what I have been saying to you:

"What we do know is that the Warriors have picked up Looney’s $1.47M option for the 2017-18 season; as with Curry, Thompson, Harrison Barnes before him, they can afford to be patient with him. Like them, he’s a first round pick who’s cost-controlled for another 2-3 years. With pricy vet contracts clogging up the cap and pushing the team into luxury tax hell for the foreseeable future, it behooves the Warriors to get contributions from cheap, young players like Looney, McCaw, Jones, and the two new Ducks. If team medical staff deems he’s damaged goods physically, that’s one thing, but for now I think it would be needlessly rash to cut ties with him for any other reason."

Looney was the 14th or 15th guy on the Warrior roster last season. A tough place to be and get playing time. Since only 13 players are active per game, the other two guys are in street clothes. Usually a coach in a regular season game goes with a ten man rotation, so even the other three guys that are active get limited playing time. If you have ever played the game of basketball, you will understand that playing time is the only way you get better.
