Jermaine O'Neal: My biggest issue now is I'm not sure what team to cheer for as a new fan? Or is it ok to have multiple teams? What do yall think? A lot of memories in some many great cities this is going to be a tuff decision. But I can say If I don't do well with this "being a fan" thing then I will think about playing again this year! To be continued on this! But as of right now I'm enjoying working out, being a business man, watching my daughter volleyball games, and training my son! Perfect. Twitter @jermaineoneal

The Warriors won’t look to re-sign center Jermaine O’Neal to fill their open roster spot, according to general manager Bob Myers, who two days earlier had left the door open to such a move. “He’s not going to come to (training) camp,” Myers, who is O’Neal’s former agent, said Thursday. “We’re going to go with our guys, our three centers we have — (Andrew) Bogut, (Festus) Ezeli, (Ognjen) Kuzmic. I think he’s still processing what he wants to do, still in the process of figuring it out. But for our purposes, he’s not going to be with us…He probably won’t be with us next year. The reason is nothing detrimental in regards to him, but we just have three guys that we have at the position, so he’d (have been) the fourth center, so that’s more why. Nothing negative. He was fantastic for us last year.” 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

“That was a difficult for him as you know to leave Dallas and his family,” Myers said of playing last season instead of retiring to his offseason residence. “But I’ve talked to him a couple of times. We keep in touch. He’s still deliberating what he wants to do, and I told him we’d stay in touch as to what we want to do.” Contra Costa Times
