Having heard what boxing had done for the longevity of players — including San Antonio’s Tim Duncan — Speights sought out a trainer. His close friend, Malcolm Peck, knows the fight game and ended up introducing him to “Silky” Wilky Campfort. “I just wanted to try something different this summer and prepare for this year,” said Speights, who also said he’s experimenting with extending his range to the three-point arc. “I’ve been working on it, but it’s all about confidence and all about the opportunity. This training camp, hopefully, I get that going, and we’ll see how the preseason goes. If not, I’ll go back to the money shot.”

Warriors keeping Marreese Speights?

The Warriors hold the team option on forward/center Marreese Speights, and general manager Bob Myers says they’re likely to bring back the man nicknamed “Mo Buckets.” “He was good for us,” Myers said Thursday night, “so I think we’re inclined to. “We’ve just got to meet tomorrow to discuss those options . . . I would think we’re leaning that way. But we haven’t committed to it. We haven’t talked to his agent and decided it 100 percent.”
