Warriors general manager Bob Myers proposed the NBA follow baseball’s lead in allowing a team trading a player to continue to pay a portion of a player’s salary while he plays for a new team. Currently, teams can add just up to $3.3 million to trades in a season and receive just up to $3.3 million in trades in a season. Both amounts increase by $100,00 annually. “The NBA, more than any other league I know for us, is most restricted,” Myers said. NBCSports.com

Bob Myers tried to picture the imaginary scene, but it was so preposterous that he started giggling as soon as uttered the first words to describe it. What if, on the brink of a big decision, the Warriors general manager got into a room with co-owner Joe Lacob, shut the door, and kept the franchise’s other basketball staffers on the outside? On this team? With those personalities? Oh. My Goodness. That’s funny. (And impossible.) “If I tried to operate with the door closed,” Myers said recently, through the laughter, “my door would get broken down.” San Jose Mercury-News

Santa Cruz coach Casey Hill spent this summer learning the system Steve Kerr implemented with Golden State. The Warriors, like many teams, want players to know the system at both levels so when they're called up or sent down — as center Ognjen Kuzmic has been often this season — they know what to do. "It's a tool that we're going to use, and we have used, to make our NBA team better," Warriors general manager Bob Myers said. USA Today Sports

But while with Idaho in the D League in 2012-13, Holiday caught the fancy of Warriors assistant general manager Kirk Lacob, and along with fellow assistant G.M. Travis Schlenk, they continued to keep tabs on his progress. Lacob and Schlenk convinced general manager Bob Myers that Holiday might be a good summer league invite, and the rest is history. "Kirk, who was our D League G.M. (in Santa Cruz), had always liked him," said Myers. "Justin put in some really good time in the D League, and we were excited to get him in the summer league. Then he was very good there. Finally, in camp, he showed up really early. Most of the guys play pick-up in September, and he just continued to elevate himself." San Jose Mercury-News

General manager Bob Myers said on 95.7 The Game that the Warriors have contacted the representatives of free agent guard Ray Allen. "We threw our team out there at his representation and I think they're vetting what they want to do," Myers said. "Obviously you've got to look at a guy like that. He's a smart enough guy. He's going to look around the league to see what's best for him." Allen averaged 9.6 points per game last year for the Miami Heat, the lowest total of his 18-year career and the first time he has been under double-digits. The two-time NBA champion is the league's all-time leader in 3-pointers. "He's an elite shooter, he's elite professional and he's been there," Myers said. "He checks a lot of boxes for a player that you want." San Jose Mercury-News

While Allen could be a good addition, Myers acknowledged the problem of finding him playing time could be an issue. "We don't have enough minutes as it is, so it's a question of chemistry too," Myers said. San Jose Mercury-News
