Draymond Green: The Golden State Warriors forward will be one of the most fascinating restricted free agents. A second-round pick, Green has developed into a necessary and versatile piece of the Warriors' puzzle. All indications point to the Warriors matching even if it means going into the luxury tax at a salary that's a bit higher than they expected. USA Today Sports

The Golden State Warriors have signed free agent forward James Michael McAdoo to a 10-day contract as a Call-Up from the Warriors’ NBA Development League affiliate in Santa Cruz, the team announced today. McAdoo, 22, has appeared in 22 games (20 starts) with the Santa Cruz Warriors this season, averaging 17.6 points, 9.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 2.00 steals and 2.59 blocks and 1.83 blocks (ninth-best in the D-League) in 32.6 minutes while hitting 57.4 percent from the field.

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

Of course the crew had to ask him about if he and John Wall are the NBA's best backcourt, specifically when compared to the Splash Brothers out in Golden State. "We feel as though were the best backcourt in the NBA and we're gonna compete each and every night to try and prove it," he said. Bullets Forever

The two teams were tied at 53 at halftime, with the Warriors trailing by as many as seven points in the second quarter during a sluggish start on defense. Bogut converted a 3-point play to open the scoring in the second half, and the Warriors never trailed again. "He's the MVP in the league right now in my opinion," Bogut said of Curry. Said Kerr: "People are recognizing this guy is clearly one of the top few players in the NBA." San Jose Mercury-News

Warriors center Andrew Bogut is one player who says he no longer has a relationship with Mark Jackson. "No way," Bogut said Monday when asked if he had a relationship with his former coach. "I haven't heard from him since (his firing). I know he keeps in touch with some guys on the team, but I'm kind of in a different crowd I think." Contra Costa Times

"To me, a rim protector is overrated in this league," Jackson said on the telecast. "You look at the Warriors. No Andrew Bogut, their defense stays or even improves because of the identity, because of what they force you to do." Bogut, who played for Jackson in two injury-plagued seasons, heard the comments. "Well he gets paid to talk," Bogut said. "He gets paid to give his opinion, and it's one of those things you've got to deal with. Every coach is different. Some coaches value rim protection. Some coaches value ball movement. Some coaches don't. It's just a matter of each coach going toward what they believe is going to win them games." Contra Costa Times

Bogut would like to return to the starting lineup, because he had trouble getting into a rhythm when coming off the bench. “I’ve been a starter my whole career,” he said. “Sometimes you criticize bench players for not bringing energy, but now I see the other side of the fence. Sometimes it takes you a couple of trips just to get warm and get into the flow of things.” San Francisco Chronicle
