Shams Charania: The Golden State Warriors have extended a qualifying offer to forward Jordan Bell, making him a restricted free agent, league sources tell
You’re in a contract year, and the Warriors can extend a qualifying offer this summer. With the recent events, are you concerned about this summer? Jordan Bell: No, I’m not really that concerned. We have a championship to win. That’s where my focus is now. I haven’t had to deal with contract stuff yet, so I’m going to try to enjoy that as much as possible until that time comes. I don’t think this off-the-court incident should affect on the court, as far as my play. I think I’ve been figuring things out. People have been helping me get through this hump.
That’s terrific for Bell, who wildly outperformed his minuscule $815,000 salary in his rookie season and will only make $1.3 million next season as he steps into an even bigger role. If he performs, Bell will put himself in position for a payday next summer, at 24, instead of a third straight season making below his value. “It can be good or bad,” Bell told The Athletic this week. “It’s kind of like betting on yourself. Some people, if you have a longer contract right away, four years (like all first-rounders), you have a longer time to develop. Two-year contract, you gotta perform both years if you want your money in that free-agency year. I don’t mind betting on myself, though. I think it was a good thing for me, especially at my age.”
“Yeah, (I) definitely (want to stay),” Bell said. “I don’t like moving, I like the team we have, I like the way things are run. Just like everyone else here, really, nobody wants to leave Golden State. We’ll see how this year turns out, how I play, all that stuff.”

Eric Walden: Rudy, on the defense: “The problem is if I don’t come and help, we give up layups. … The gameplan was for us to let Terance Mann shoot rather than letting Reggie Jackson or PG get layups. We tried to adjust with full rotations. They played perfectly on almost every possession.”
Ben Anderson: Rudy Gobert got a little testy when asked about what he needs to do when team’s go small.. “I mean I don’t know what do you think we should do?” Clear he doesn’t like the narrative that this is only on him. To his credit, he never waivers in saying defense is a team effort.
Eric Walden: Rudy, on what the Jazz need defensively: “It takes a team effort, it takes five guys to defend. … Everyone on their team raised their level, and it was hard for us to guard them. … Defensively, they were doing a better job than we did with the weapons they had.”
Gerald Bourguet: Monty on the Clippers: “They’re a good team. They’ve shown that they can overcome deficits in the playoffs, for sure. Watching the game last night, you just saw the Clippers impose their will defensively.”
Gerald Bourguet: Monty on Deandre Ayton in a potential small-ball series: “Your team defense has to be at a high level…DA has shown himself to be pretty good in those situations.” Said the eye test shows DA’s capable of forcing smaller guys into tough shots
