Warriors GM Bob Myers wouldn't promise a playoff berth in 2012-13, but he thinks they've got a better chance than last year. "I’m not sure we could expect much from the talent that we supplied the coaching staff with last year," Myers said. "But I called Mark (Jackson) and told him after the Carl Landry signing that he has something to work with this year. I don’t think he’s running from that challenge. I think he’s saying, ‘Yeah, we do.’" Sulia

As @AlexKennedyNBA, Rush worked out today as the Lakers looked on. Los Angeles GM Mitch Kupchak, looking to overhaul his anemic bench, would love to add Rush to the fold. The Warriors need someone who can come in and get buckets, as well as play some defense. But the Lakers only have the mini-midlevel to offer, meaning any offer sheet Rush would sign the Lakers would have to start at $3 million. Fair to say the Warriors would love for Rush to sign an offer sheet with the Lakers. No doubt, if Rush came to the Warriors right now looking for a deal starting at $3 million, Warriors GM Bob Myers would jump at it. Contra Costa Times

The Warriors are going after free agent PF Carl Landry. Talks are progressing, a source says, but it's going to be a tough sell since the Warriors have limited funds. But the Warriors, who have long since liked Landry, are hoping to cap offseason movement with another coupe. If Bob Myers can pull that off, he'd earn major love from Warriors fans Sulia

Once the Portland Trail Blazers selected Oakland’s own Damian Lillard, a point guard out of Weber State, Warriors general manager Bob Myers said his phone went berzerk. North Carolina’s Harrison Barnes was still on the board. “My phone almost blew up with people wanting our pick, wanting our player,” Myers said. “He’s got great value and he fits what we need.” Contra Costa Times

The Warriors are preparing for a number of scenarios at No. 7. Depending on how things go on draft night, Barnes, Andre Drummond, Damian Lillard, Dion Waiters or even Kidd-Gilchrist could fall to them. The Warriors like all of the above, but like every other team in the NBA, not everyone agrees on the order. Warriors consultant Jerry West, sources say, has Waiters ranked quite high. Owner Joe Lacob feels like it might be tough to pass on Drummond if he's there. GM Bob Myers, is a Barnes fan. Everyone agrees that Kidd-Gilchrist would be the guy if he falls. There are also Lillard supporters in Golden State. This is why mock drafts are so difficult to make. How are we supposed to report to you what teams will do when they don't know themselves? ESPN.com

After Brandon Roy was amnestied last season, Warriors GM Bob Myers told him "You should try to come back." Almost a year later, Roy said he wants to make a return to the NBA, and Myers said the Warriors could be an option. "We’d look at him as a possibility," said Myers, who used to rep Roy. "He’s an easy phone call. He has said he wants to come back, and I’ll certainly talk to him. It depends what his expectations are and all of that, but I’ll absolutely talk to him." Sulia

There’s a connection between Myers and Roy; Myers used to be Roy’s agent. “It’s a possibility,” Myers answered, when asked if the Warriors would have interest in Roy. “He’s an easy phone call to make.” The Warriors have Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson in their backcourt, but Myers has said frequently over the past months that the team needs to get more veteran experience. Assuming Roy can still play, he would fit the bill there. CSNBayArea.com

Bob Myers: "“I told (Roy) when he was amnesty-ed … ‘I hope this isn’t it for you. Make sure this isn’t it. He’s said publicly he wants to come back, so I’ll start to talk to him. It depends how everything goes for us and what his expectations are and all of that. But absolutely I’ll talk to him.” CSNBayArea.com
