Warriors general manager Bob Myers expects contract extension talks with guard Klay Thompson’s agent, Bill Duffy, to continue into the start of the season. Myers told 95.7 The Game on Wednesday before the team’s season opener in Sacramento that the two sides have been talking daily. If they cannot strike a deal before Friday, Thompson will become a restricted free agent after the season when the Warriors can match another team’s offer sheet. “As long as you’re talking, deals have a chance of getting done,” Myers told the station. “You worry about a deal getting done if both sides aren’t speaking, and we’re talking, and we’ll see. It seems like a short window here, but still got about 48 hours to see if we can consummate something, so we’re hoping we can, and we’ll keep working at it.” Contra Costa Times

Mychal Thompson has said that his son, Klay, is seeking a maximum-salary contract. Myers has declined to comment on the nature of negotiations with the 24-year-old Thompson, who averaged a team-leading 21.7 points per game in the preseason. Contra Costa Times

Curry indicated that, based on his relationship with Guber, it was an "honest mistake," adding that he has read previous emails that appeared to have mistakes resulting from the "quirkiness" of Guber's typing. "Hearing how his reaction to when he found out what exactly happened seemed genuine," Curry said. "(I) kind of got to assess the situation for his character and who he is, and that's kind of how I'm going about it. CSNBayArea.com

Kerr for more than a month has spoken publicly about wanting to experiment with Andre Iguodala and Leandro Barbosa on the court together. That Iguodala has been helping run the second unit in the preseason is still surprising to some given his history in the league. "I'm pretty shocked," Barbosa said. "I don't think Andre has been in that position before for the many years that he's been in the NBA. He's doing a great job. "We have a really good chemistry so far, and hopefully we can bring that energy to the (regular-season) games." Oakland Tribune

Guber's email, which was sent from his phone and obtained by Yahoo Sports, came after the NBA announced in a news release earlier Monday that the league's 30 teams will have a record 101 international players from 37 countries and territories on opening-night rosters for the upcoming season. Warriors director of media relations Raymond Ridder forwarded the league's release in an email sent through the franchise, saying, "The following is a great example of the growth of our league. There are 101 international players on NBA opening night rosters, which represents 22% of the league. We have five [5] international players on our roster (33%), which includes Andrew Bogut, Leandro Barbosa, Festus Ezeli, Ognjen Kuzmic and Nemanja Nedovic. We've come a long way…" Guber responded to the email by writing, "I’m taking rosetta stone to learn Hungarian Serbian Australian swahili and hoodish This year. But it's nice." Yahoo! Sports

Guber's initial email was sent throughout the franchise and construed as "offensive" by at least one team employee. Late Monday, Guber sent a follow-up email saying he mistakenly typed "hoodish" and regretted the error. "Someone just brought to my attention that an email I responded to earlier contains the word 'hoodish,' which I don't even think Is a Word, and certainly not the one I intended to use," Guber wrote in the email. "I intended to type Yiddish. Either my mobile fone [sic] autocorrected or it was typed wrong. In any event I regret if anyone was unintendedly [sic] offended." Yahoo! Sports
