  • D'Angelo Russell
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Bob Myers says that the Warriors did not sign D'Angelo Russell just to trade him.

    Saying otherwise would surely draw the ire of the league and players association, so Myers' hands are sort of tied here. It's already been reported that the Warriors will try and move Russell when Klay Thompson returns, and that makes plenty of sense. That uncertainty is something to keep in the back of your mind when fantasy drafts open, but Russell is still going to come off draft boards in the middle rounds with a great opportunity in front of him while Thompson is out.

  • Stephen Curry
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Bob Myers says the Warriors haven't discussed whether or not they'll engage in load management for Steph Curry and Draymond Green next season.

    The Warriors are in for more of a fight in the regular season next year, and while they'll likely have to play harder to clinch a playoff spot with security, they still figure to prioritize the long-term health of their stars and try to keep them as fresh as possible for the postseason. Expect Green and Curry to get a few nights off next season, but we wouldn't expect it to impact their fantasy stocks at all. With Kevin Durant gone and Klay Thompson looking at a mid-year return, Curry and Green could have huge seasons coming.

  • Kevin Mcclain
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Kevin McClain scored 24 points (9-of-16 shooting) and added four steals and five triples in Friday's 87-88 loss to the Lakers.

    McClain spent four seasons at Belmont and had his finest campaign as a senior, posting 16.9 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.1 threes per contest, hitting 36.6 percent of his triples. He's certainly helped his stock in Vegas but he's unlikely to be more than a G-League hand this season.

  • Alen Smailagic
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors signed Alen Smailagic to a four-year deal worth $6.1 million, with the first two seasons guaranteed.

    Golden State traded to select Smailagic at No. 39 overall after he spent last season with the team's G-League affiliate. He was the youngest player in the league and clearly the organization saw enough to reward him with a longer-term commitment than expected.

  • Jimmer Fredette
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Nikos Varlas of Eurohoops is reporting that free agent guard Jimmer Fredette intends to sign a two-year agreement with Greek club Panathinaikos.

    Fredette recently left the Warriors summer-league team in order to pursue overseas options and to avoid any potential injuries. He dominated for a couple years in China before returning to the NBA at the end of last year but the Suns declined their option on him following the season as he struggled in limited action, averaging just 3.7 points and shooting 27.6 percent, while missing all 13 of his 3-point attempts.

  • Jordan Poole
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors have signed Jordan Poole, Eric Paschall and Alen Smailagic to contracts.

    The Warriors' three rookies will all be full-time members of the big club, though we could see Smailagic spend some time with the G-League club. There's not going to be much fantasy value here but it'll be interesting to see how the Warriors incorporate their young players on a more balanced roster.

  • Alec Burks
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors have announced the signing of Alec Burks.

    Burks heads to Golden State on a one-year deal after he backed out of a commitment with the Thunder. He'll give the Warriors some scoring off the bench and will be a major part of a second unit that looks to be more dynamic than it has been in recent years.

  • Ky Bowman
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors have signed Ky Bowman to a two-way contract.

    Bowman spent three seasons at Boston College and put up his finest season in his last year at BC, averaging 19.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.4 steals, 0.6 blocks and 2.8 threes per game. He figures to spend most of his season in Santa Cruz but could see minutes as the Warriors bring a new-look group to the table.

  • Kevon Looney
    PF-C, Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors have formally re-signed Kevon Looney.

    Looney heads back to the Bay on an affordable three-year, $15 million deal. He's emerged as a key cog in the frontcourt for the Warriors and will be battling for the starting center spot with Willie Cauley-Stein. Last season Looney chipped in 5.2 rebounds, 0.6 steals and 0.7 blocks in 18.5 mpg, so if he can establish himself as a 25-plus mpg player there's certainly potential for him to emerge as a fantasy option in 12-team formats.

  • Jacob Evans
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    Jacob Evans looked sharp in Wednesday's 73-69 win over the Nuggets in Summer League, dropping 17 points on 6-of-14 shooting.

    Evans did a bit of everything, adding five rebounds, one dime, one trey, one steal and two swats to the box score. He's likely going to see some playing time in 2019-20 with Quinn Cook now gone. He's playing behind Steph Curry and D'Angelo Russell though, so it'll be rough sailing for him to be able to navigate into standard-league rosters.

  • Klay Thompson
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors announced that they have re-signed Klay Thompson.

    Thompson's free agency was drama-free, as he had always said he'd be back with the Warriors if they offered up a max contract. He's been given a 5-to-7 month timetable in his recovery from a torn left ACL, which makes him a stash in redraft formats. How much the Warriors will play him when he first returns, and how long those restrictions will be in place, however, remains to be seen.

  • Glenn Robinson III
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors have announced the signing of Glenn Robinson III.

    Robinson is believed to be on a two-year deal, with a player option on the second season. GR3 will slot into the wing rotation and try to get back on track after injuries have taken the wind out of what began as a promising career.

  • Willie Cauley-Stein
    C, Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors have officially signed Willie Cauley-Stein.

    Cauley-Stein is believed to be on a two-year deal worth $4.4 million, with a player option in the second season. Hopefully his season of rehabbing value in Golden State goes better than DeMarcus Cousins' did. WCS will give the Warriors a threat in the pick-and-roll but he's going to need to outplay Kevon Looney in order to approach the 27.3 mpg he received last season, which is something we're not all that confident in. If he can get out of his own way then it's possible, but Cauley-Stein's commitment to defense has been fleeting over the last couple of years.

  • Shaun Livingston
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors are waiving Shaun Livingston, who is guaranteed $2 million of his $7.7 million salary for the 2019-20 season, on Tuesday.

    The 33-year-old Livingston will look to latch on with another contending team. Livingston won three NBA titles and reached five Finals as an integral role-player for the Warriors dynasty. The Warriors have now let go of two of the more familiar bench pieces in Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston, in addition to Kevin Durant leaving in free agency.
