A player known for his toughness, effort and defensive ability, Briante Weber was recently released by the Warriors and picked up by the Charlotte Hornets shortly after. “What I am hoping to prove is that I belong in this league,” Weber told me. “I know I’m not what everybody wants but I know what I bring to the table. So me being me, I’m going to continue to be persistent in my journey while I hold my head high and give my all for whoever gives me the chance.”

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.
Chris Haynes: Golden State to sign guard Briante Weber to second 10-day, league sources tell ESPN. Four teams inquired about his services in interim.
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.
Ira Winderman: The Grizzlies have released Briante Weber and signed Jordan Farmar. Weber is playoff eligible and free to be signed by any NBA team.
The Grizzlies will soon sign guard Briante Weber of the NBA Developement League's Sioux Falls SkyForce to a 10-day contract, sources said. Memphis is also without starting point guard Mike Conley, who has a foot injury.

D'Angelo Russell looking great in workouts

Who would Wolves staff consider to be early candidates for the most improved player on the roster? 2) Do the Wolves see McKinley Wright IV as a sort of “Pat Bev-in-training”? 3) Will there really be a concerted effort to apply full-court defensive pressure? — @Tresio The two players I have heard a lot of buzz about looking great in workouts: McDaniels and (drum roll, please) … Russell. Sounds like he is locked in right now.

NBA execs expect breakout season from Darius Garland

The 21-year-old guard should thrive in pick-and-roll action with Jarrett Allen and Evan Mobley as rim rollers, while the addition of Lauri Markkanen, who shot 40.2 percent from downtown last season, will help space the floor and open pick-and-pop opportunities. “I think Garland’s kind of gotten lost in the shuffle in terms of people knowing who he is because of Colin Sexton,” an NBA scout opined. “If he stays healthy, I like picking him.”
I have heard A-Rod and the new ownership is bully on the Wolves. What major moves do you predict they will make to improve the product in the next couple years? — @SPORTSviKINGs17 So far, it appears like the immediate target is just modernizing things, bringing a franchise that has often been at the back of the pack to more of the cutting edge when it comes to technology and innovation — that sort of thing. Of course, the main goal will be to make the Timberwolves more competitive on the floor, but I think there is a real emphasis on everything around the basketball, as well. What can be done to change the perception of the organization? They are taking a long look at culture and values and defining characteristics. Those might seem like mumbo jumbo to dyed-in-the-wool hoop heads, but those are things that Lore and Rodriguez are very familiar with in their other businesses. They can dive in on them right away as they work to get up to speed on the intricacies of basketball, the collective bargaining agreement and the team in general.
