Jake Fischer: Correction: The Warriors have not yet contacted Briante Weber and representative Bill Neff regarding his future following second 10-day.
Jake Fischer: The Warriors have an open roster spot after not extending Briante Weber past his second 10-day contract, according to agent Bill Neff.
Do you feel like you might need to free a roster spot for buyout season? Bob Myers: “Well, Briante is on his second 10-day and it’s really a 12-day because (it has to last three games). That’ll give us more time to evaluate him push it past the deadline. So we’ll see who was or was not traded and who might or might not be a candidate for a buyout. The buyout market is always fluid. It’s unpredictable. Often times you hear a player’s name and that doesn’t come to fruition or conversely, you’ll not have thought of a possibility and that pops up. So technically, having let (Anderson) Varejao go, we have a spot. (Briante) Weber currently has it. We can be flexible. So we’ll see what happens. It’s kind of hard to speculate on the buyout market because it’s somewhat unpredictable.”
Anthony Slater: Warriors make the second Briante Weber 10-day contract official. Clock starts today. Last 10-day before they must make season-long decision.
Other than adding Briante Weber to a 10-day contract — and, reportedly, another — the Warriors should stand pat. “As we look at our roster moving forward, I think where we’re going to grow is within our own team,” Harris said.

When Erik Spoelstra was asked Monday about the battle for the final roster spot between Beno Udrih and Briante Weber, he gave a very interesting answer. “It’s not a competition just between those two,” Spoelstra said. It turns out that Udrih and Weber aren’t just competing against each other for Miami’s 15th roster spot. The pair of point guards are also competing against 25-year-old shooting guard Rodney McGruder. “Yeah, he is,” Spoelstra said Wednesday when asked if McGruder is still in the race for a roster spot. With the Heat’s roster still at the NBA preseason maximum of 20 players, Miami must cut its roster to the regular-season maximum of 15 players by Monday’s deadline. With 14 players pretty much guaranteed a spot on the roster, that leaves Udrih, Weber and McGruder fighting for the final opening.

Young only played one game against the Bucks this season. He had a rough one in the 11-point loss to Milwaukee with 15 points on 3-of-17 from the field. He was 0-of-3 from deep and 9-of-9 from the free-throw line. Young also dished out nine assists but committed six turnovers. It was a forgettable game for the most part for Young and the Hawks. Milwaukee had Jrue Holiday defending Young, and we can expect a healthy dose of that in this series. Depending on which side you’re pulling for, it might be an unhealthy dose. We’ve seen Holiday dominate some of the best guards in the NBA with his defensive genius and commitment. In their one game against each other this season, Young shot 11 runners against the Bucks. That’s 11 of those vaunted runners mentioned above in those 17 total shot attempts. Young made just two of them. He made just one of them against Holiday with Brook Lopez often stepping up to defend him. For the most part, they looked like good, comfortable attempts by Young. He just didn’t make them.
