HoopsHype Bob Myers rumors

After yet another injury-marred season, center Andrew Bogut has gotten through this summer entirely healthy. And when the season gets rolling in two months, the Warriors have every intention of treating him that way. “I think the initial thought is he is healthy, and play him as much as you want,” general manager Bob Myers told Sporting News. “If something obviously were to develop, something unforeseen, you have to react to it. At this point, you treat him like he is 100 percent healthy, that is what he is saying, that is what the medical staff is saying, so, you don’t treat him any other way. Maybe the question is, do you want to play him 35 minutes? But that is a question for any center. It is not due to anything with his injury. We’re approaching it like he is healthy.” Sporting News

The Warriors are not yet clear on whether they will keep Nedovic in Europe. Myers said he has a contract buyout that needs to be negotiated with his team overseas. The Warriors are hoping he joins them for Summer League in Las Vegas next month. As for the big, that need will have to be addressed during the free agency period. The Warriors have limited funds and a few minor pieces they are willing to move. Contra Costa Times

With the 2013 NBA draft a week away, Golden State sits on the outside looking in. But general manager Bob Myers suggests the Warriors may not stay bystanders. "We'd love to have a pick," Myers said Wednesday in a meeting with local media. "What we would look at if it would make sense and there's a nice young player. ... It's always good to have young players. They're cheaper. ... The fact that we have a lot of young players makes it that we're not desperate. But if you can find good players on rookie deals, you always want to do that." Contra Costa Times

Myers said center Andrew Bogut's ankle is recovering fine. The Warriors get regular updates and will send a trainer to Australia to examine Bogut. Contra Costa Times

"I think that sense of desperation has passed," Myers said. "I think that whereas when you're trying to do anything to get over the hump you do sometimes chase things that may be difficult to acquire. Whereas now, doesn't mean we're satisfied, it doesn't mean we think our work is through, but we can be prudent and patient with opportunities as they come along." NBA.com
