The Golden State Warriors have assigned forward James Michael McAdoo to the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA Development League, the team announced today. McAdoo, who signed with Golden State for the remainder of the season yesterday, has appeared in four games with the Warriors, averaging 3.5 points and 1.3 rebounds in 5.0 minutes. NBA.com

Green will become a restricted free agent this summer and might have an eye on his home state Detroit Pistons, according to a report on Yahoo Sports. NBA columnist Adrian Wojnarowski cited league sources as saying Green has “significant interest” in pursuing an offer sheet with the Pistons. “It doesn’t mean anything,” Kerr said after his team’s practice in Oakland. “Last time I checked, he’s restricted.” San Francisco Chronicle

Not surprisingly, Green showed little interest in sharing his thoughts on his impending free agency. “I have an agent who gets a percentage of what I sign for, so you can call and ask him about it,” he said. “My focus is this team.” Asked about the process, Green replied, “I don’t know much about restricted free agency. If you sign an offer sheet, then the Warriors can match it in 72 hours. That’s about all I know. … And we’ve got the Spurs coming in here.” San Francisco Chronicle

Memphis has expressed interest in the best free-agent shooter languishing on a couch and remains interested in veteran Ray Allen. The veteran sharpshooter is expected to make a decision soon about whether he’ll return to the NBA this season. Allen has long spurned Memphis’ overtures. He isn’t short on options. Cleveland, the Los Angeles Clippers, Golden State, San Antonio, Chicago, Washington and Atlanta are among the contenders that have expressed interest in Allen. Memphis Commercial Appeal

"I didn't expect us to do anything, and I'm glad we didn't," Kerr said. "I'm thrilled that we stood pat. We've got a team that we like. We have the best record in the league. We have great chemistry, and there's no reason to disrupt that." Contra Costa Times

But Green said his focus for now is on the Warriors' season. "I'm in a position right now where we're 42-9," he said. "I'm on a great team, a great coaching staff, a great organization. Like I've said all along, I'll be doing myself a disservice to not enjoy what's going on right now. This is a special group that I'm playing with. I think we can make special things happen this year. "So for me to sit and worry, 'Oh, can I sign with the Pistons? Or can I do this or do that?' I'd be living wrong. I'd be not enjoying what there is to enjoy." San Jose Mercury-News

In a new ad set to debut during Friday’s Spurs-Warriors game, the NBA is honoring the Chinese New Year. The commercial features James Harden and Jeremy Lin visiting a fan’s house to honor the holiday, which begins this week. The commercial is colorful and entertaining but is also a bit strategic for the league — as they point out on their YouTube page, China has the largest international NBA fan base. Another video posted to the league’s YouTube page shows a variety of “bloopers” that happened in the filming of the ad, including Dwyane Wade and Steph Curry having a bit of trouble with their lines.

He is aware that, when he plays for other teams over the course of the year, they’re not just looking at him as an opponent but as a potential future employee. He is aware that his first NBA contract—three years, $2.5 million—will be dwarfed by his next contract. “I know I am a free agent,” Green told Sporting News. “Everyone knows it. But I can honestly say I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it.” Sporting News
