Bob Myers Rumors

Which brings us to the subject of a contract extension. Ezeli will earn $2 million next season but can become a restricted free agent next July. It has been speculated that Ezeli could be in line for a deal averaging as much as $10 million. Asked recently about an extension for Ezeli, Warriors general manager Bob Myers said the matter would be addressed before the Oct. 31 deadline. “We love them and we’re going to try to keep them as long as we can,” Myers said, referring to Harrison Barnes and Ezeli. “Thankfully, like with Draymond (Green), they would be restricted free agents. But hopefully we can figure something out like we have with a lot of our players. They’re a key part of what we do. Without them, we don’t win a championship.”

Once you start doing that, that’s when dissenting voices become a problem. “This is the most healthy environment I’ve been involved with since I’ve been in the NBA.”

Warriors keeping Marreese Speights?

The Warriors hold the team option on forward/center Marreese Speights, and general manager Bob Myers says they’re likely to bring back the man nicknamed “Mo Buckets.” “He was good for us,” Myers said Thursday night, “so I think we’re inclined to. “We’ve just got to meet tomorrow to discuss those options . . . I would think we’re leaning that way. But we haven’t committed to it. We haven’t talked to his agent and decided it 100 percent.”
