Mark Medina: The Warriors officially re-sign Kevin Durant. Warriors have 12 players under contract & will be at 13 when Jonas Jerebko signs. They’ll be at 14 presuming Patrick McCaw returns. Warriors likely to keep last roster spot open to save $$ and keep flexibility for next season.
Anthony Slater: It was assumed, but the expected agreement with Jonas Jerebko basically puts an end to any thoughts of a reunion with Zaza Pachulia and David West. Roster at 13. McCaw (or another guard/wing) will make 14. That’s where they plan to cap roster.

How do you feel about becoming a free agent at the end of the season? Jonas Jerebko: I’m just excited to be a Boston Celtic right now, finishing first in the East, and being in the playoffs. Being a free agent is always interesting. I love my time in Boston and I’m not closing any doors. I’m just excited for the summer and see what happens. I’m taking it day by day now with the playoffs, trying not to think about what’s going to happen in the summer. I’m getting in the gym early and staying ready for when my number is called.
Your name was written under the ‘Hybrid Free Agency’ category on the now-famous Orlando Magic board. Did you see it? Jonas Jerebko: My uncle and my dad follow that stuff and they sent it to me. To be honest, I’ve played in the NBA for a while and I’m pretty sure all the teams have those boards. Yes, my name was there but I’m hoping my name is on a few other lists too.
Because of this free agent uncertainty, sources close to Johnson and Jerebko are saying they’ve been advised that the decision on whether to pick up one or both of their options could well come down to the final hours. Johnson is slated to make $12 million next season, and Jerebko is down for $5 million, but the Celts can opt out of those deals by serving notice by midnight Sunday (July 3rd).
He declined to comment on impending free agents Evan Turner (unrestricted), Jared Sullinger (restricted) and Tyler Zeller (restricted) — beyond saying that Turner had a “good year” — and said “nothing has been decided” on the contract options for Jonas Jerebko and Amir Johnson.

Will Cherry is expected to join the Golden State Warriors on an Exhibit 10 contract, a source told Sportando. The guard, who has played 8 games with Cavs in 2014-2015, spent last season with KK Cedevita in Croatia averaging 10.5 points in the domestic league, 11.1 points in AB Liga and 11.8 points with 4 assists in EuroCup.
If McCaw doesn’t show up, maybe the Warriors will just stage an open competition and see if one of those younger options seizes the opportunity. But the most likely result remains McCaw’s eventual concession. A similar situation happened with center Alex Len in Phoenix last summer. He didn’t love his $4.2 million qualifying offer. He dragged the process deep into the summer. He finally accepted it on Sept. 21, right before camp.
Wade, 36, waited until the end of the video before revealing his choice. He began by stating the reasons he considered walking away. The red-eye flights, nightly ice baths and hours on the training table were all factors but nothing made retirement look more appealing than spending more time with family. “Is it selfish of me wanting to continue being away from family,” Wade said. “Can I miss my son’s games? Can I miss my son? Can I not be there in moments that they need me? Can I not read to my kids as much as I want. Can I not be there to support my wife? It’s all these things.”
Before entering the league in 2003, Wade always thought time was forever on his side. He was quickly corrected by veteran teammates. Sixteen years later, the warnings proved true. “When you first come in the league, the vets tell you, they say, `Young fella, it’s going to go by fast,’” Wade said in the video. “You think at that time, `I’m just getting started.’ … I’m here to tell you it goes by fast. It’s been a tough summer. This has been a summer for me that not a lot of athletes want to see this time come, where you have to decide if you want to continue to play the game that you love.”’
The Atlanta Hawks Basketball Club has signed center Cole Aldrich, it was announced today. Aldrich has played eight NBA seasons with Oklahoma City, Houston, Sacramento, New York, the LA Clippers and Minnesota, averaging 3.1 points and 3.3 rebounds in 10.0 minutes (.527 FG%, .738 FG%) in 339 career games (23 starts).
Brown said Fultz took around 150,000 shots this summer under Hanlen’s supervision. “When I see him now come back into our gym, you look at his swagger, his cocky, his mojo,” the coach said. “He’s seeking shots.”
