The Warriors’ 14-man full-time roster is finalized. But Myers did say an official decision still must be made on the two two-way slots in the coming days. Damion Lee, who hit 23 total 3s in 32 games for the Warriors on a two-way last season, has been extended a qualifying offer. Lee is still hoping for a full-time NBA roster spot somewhere. The Warriors still have hope he’ll return. “He’s a possibility,” Myers said.

McKinnie’s added value might cost the Warriors Damion Lee. They like him. They need his shooting. But they also don’t have a roster spot for him — giving it instead to more experienced wings such as Glenn Robinson III and Burks. Sources said they are trying to talk Lee into playing on a two-way contract again, splitting time with the G League team in Santa Cruz and the main team. If he doesn’t take it, the Warriors have no other way to keep him.
The Warriors have insisted on staying patient with what they do with their 15th and final roster spot. That means there is a growing chance that Damion Lee could fill that slot after spending this season on a two-way contract. That entails splitting his time both with the Warriors and their G-League team in Santa Cruz. “He would be someone given he has been with us all year,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “We don’t have to make any decisions right now. Well wait and see how it all plays out.”
The Warriors can still sign existing free agents to their roster as long as they sign the night before the end of the regular season. Because of that framework, it appears likely the Warriors will wait until then so they can account for the team’s current health and positional needs. “We’re keeping it open,” Kerr said. “If the right person is there, we’ll see to use it.”

Jaylen Brown wanted Boston to hire a black head coach

The NBA entered the 2020-21 season with seven African American coaches among its 30 teams despite the league being about 75% Black. Brown told The Undefeated that he told the Celtics ownership and front office last offseason that it was important to hire a Black head coach after Brad Stevens was promoted to president of basketball operations. The Celtics seemingly listened, hiring former NBA player Ime Udoka, who was a Brooklyn Nets assistant last season and has nine years of coaching experience, on June 28. “They were on board with it. They talked about it. It wasn’t like it was just about being African American. [Udoka is] more than qualified,” said Brown.
