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.

Myers, whose deal was due to expire at the end of the coming season, has been the team’s GM since April 2012 and recently helped steer the way through the tumultuous dismissal of coach Mark Jackson after a 51-win season and second consecutive trip to the playoffs.

How did you learn about the Team USA Select Squad invitation?? Draymond Green: It was amazing. I was thrilled. I actually got a call from Bob Myers, our General Manage,r first and he sent me a text saying, ‘Give me a call I am bout to do an interview on the radio right now.’ First thing I thought was, ‘Okay, I’ve just been traded,’ but I hadn’t heard from my agent so I knew that hadn’t happened so I wondered what was going on. Then he called me as soon as he finished the radio and said, ‘Hey man you have been invited. You are on the USA Select Team.’ He told me it was a big deal and I should really be excited because it is a great opportunity. I was thrilled because just to be in the mix and to be mentioned with the USA Team is an honor in itself. That means you are heading in the right direction. Some of the guys that are on the roster now started off on the Select Team and our country and our league has so much talent that not everyone can make the team, so just to be a part of that means a lot to me.

With most of the NBA in Las Vegas for summer league games, the two sides have had a chance to meet face-to-face to talk about a deal mentioned as a possibility for more than a month. The person requested anonymity because both teams are not publicly commenting on trade discussions. Timberwolves president and coach Flip Saunders was seen talking to Warriors GM Bob Myers at the arena on Sunday as the two sides look to bridge the gaps that caused discussions to stall.

“Rush was great. Everybody that’s been a fan saw how good he was for us, so if he’s healthy, and he can play, which we hear he can — we’ll go watch him and see — it’s a good addition if we could get him. You don’t know what the price would be, but we like Brandon,” Warriors general manager Bob Myers told KNBR on Monday. Contra Costa Times

Myers, who said he would like to sign two more players, is also interested in bringing back center Jermaine O’Neal. “We like those two guys because we know ‘em a little bit,” Myers said. “We’ve had them in the organization. It’s nice to bring back players that you know and have been around. Both those guys are great guys.” Contra Costa Times

Weems was head boys basketball coach at Menlo School from 2004 to 2011, when he took a job with Golden State as an assistant coach for player development. After two years, Weems was fired by recently fired Warriors coach Mark Jackson. Weems didn't give a reason why he was let go by Jackson, only that Weems "didn't like the way it went down." Weems quickly landed on his feet, being hired as a scout by Warriors General Manager Bob Myers and Assistant General Manager Kirk Lacob, who played basketball for Weems at Menlo School. "I traveled all over the country," Weems said. "Must have seen 60 to 70 college games. Saw a lot of D-League (NBA Development League) games at our affiliate in Santa Cruz. I really enjoyed it." San Jose Mercury-News

Weems may know more about firing than hiring, having been linked to the Warriors the past three years. Not long after the Warriors lost in seven games to the Los Angeles Clippers in the NBA playoffs, Warriors majority owner Joe Lacob fired Jackson on May 6. "Jackson gave the Warriors some credibility," Weems said. "He did a good job with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, but, then again, Jackson was a guard in the NBA." San Jose Mercury-News
