Warriors center Marreese Speights pleaded not guilty Tuesday to a charge of driving under the influence stemming from his arrest in August in Tampa. A written not guilty plea was entered by an attorney at Speights’ arraignment, Hillsborough County State Attorney’s Office spokesman Mark Cox said Wednesday. Speights’ attorney did not immediately return a message seeking comment.

Thompson and the Warriors have until Oct. 31 to agree on an extension that would ensure the "Splash Brothers," as he and All-Star point guard Stephen Curry have been dubbed, are in the same pool for years to come. Failing to reach a deal would mean he'll become a restricted free agent next summer, a scenario that Thompson and his agent, Bill Duffy, would prefer to avoid. Yet Duffy is widely known to be demanding a maximum contract that the Warriors would prefer not to pay. His reasoning? He sees Thompson as the best shooting guard in the game. USA Today Sports

Warriors owner Joe Lacob preferred not to discuss the extension situation but made it clear that Thompson is seen as a major priority for their program. As he pointed out, the organization has been making moves with Thompson in mind for quite some time now. In March 2012, they traded Monta Ellis to the Milwaukee Bucks not only to land center Andrew Bogut, but also to make room for Thompson during his rookie season. "We love Klay," Lacob said in an e-mail to USA TODAY Sports. "He is clearly an integral part of our team and our future. I remember sitting courtside at Stanford Pac-12 games watching Klay at (Washington State) for three years. I thought he could be a prototype big shooting guard in the NBA and we targeted him in the draft and were ecstatic to be able to draft him at (No.) 11 in the first round. We traded an excellent guard freeing up a starting spot for him and, as is known, despite many requests from other teams over the last few years, we have continued to bet on his continued development. We are very proud that he is a Warrior and also of his major contribution on this year's USA Basketball team. We are looking forward to a great year for Klay, the Splash Brothers and the Warriors."

"I wasn't really pissed," Thompson said. "I was more just worried about being traded, just because I'm so comfortable in the Bay. I think that's natural for anybody (to not want to) just get up and move. I mean it wouldn't have been the end of the world, but it's a business, and I'm still playing ball for a living. I was more happy when they showed faith in me that they didn't want to budge and trade me for a guy (in Love) who's a multiple all-NBA guy and a proven All-Star. I thought that was really cool that the Warriors believed in my potential." USA Today Sports

Warriors executive board member Jerry West has agreed to a two-year extension with the team through the 2016-2017 season, an NBA source confirmed to this newspaper on Wednesday. West had one year remaining on his original deal with the team and this new deal will be tacked on, for a total of a three-year commitment from this point. This move, coupled with the new deal for general manager Bob Myers through the 2017-20178 season, puts a bow on co-owner Joe Lacob’s desire to keep his front office together for the long-term as the team gets set to move into a San Francisco arena by 2018.

The Golden State Warriors have signed free agent guard Justin Holiday, the team announced today. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not released. Holiday played for the Warriors at the 2014 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, starting all five games and averaging a team-high 14.8 points to go with 5.0 rebounds in 22.8 minutes. NBA.com

Still, the legacy of American dominance that the Dream Team left is always on the line when its successors find themselves faced with an international challenge. Thus, the next week — in which Team USA faces Slovenia on Tuesday and would advance to a Thursday semifinal with a win — matters more than most might realize. "I've thought about (the Dream Team) a lot," Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry said. "Guys that suited up on this team were walking through the hotel (the other day), kind of in the back of the line, and everybody had on their practice jerseys. And we were like ... 22 years ago, the Dream Team first came through here and won a gold and set up, hopefully, the longstanding US dominance in the basketball world. It's definitely special."
