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

Warriors general manager Bob Myers expects contract extension talks with guard Klay Thompson’s agent, Bill Duffy, to continue into the start of the season. Myers told 95.7 The Game on Wednesday before the team’s season opener in Sacramento that the two sides have been talking daily. If they cannot strike a deal before Friday, Thompson will become a restricted free agent after the season when the Warriors can match another team’s offer sheet. “As long as you’re talking, deals have a chance of getting done,” Myers told the station. “You worry about a deal getting done if both sides aren’t speaking, and we’re talking, and we’ll see. It seems like a short window here, but still got about 48 hours to see if we can consummate something, so we’re hoping we can, and we’ll keep working at it.” Contra Costa Times

The Warriors won’t look to re-sign center Jermaine O’Neal to fill their open roster spot, according to general manager Bob Myers, who two days earlier had left the door open to such a move. “He’s not going to come to (training) camp,” Myers, who is O’Neal’s former agent, said Thursday. “We’re going to go with our guys, our three centers we have — (Andrew) Bogut, (Festus) Ezeli, (Ognjen) Kuzmic. I think he’s still processing what he wants to do, still in the process of figuring it out. But for our purposes, he’s not going to be with us…He probably won’t be with us next year. The reason is nothing detrimental in regards to him, but we just have three guys that we have at the position, so he’d (have been) the fourth center, so that’s more why. Nothing negative. He was fantastic for us last year.” Contra Costa Times
