More Rumors in this Storyline
Bobby Marks: We now have 4 restricted free agents left on the board after the Marcus Smart signing: Clint Capela (HOU), Rodney Hood (CLE), Patrick McCaw (GSW) and Montrezl Harrell (LAC).
Mark Medina: Warriors announce the signing of Jonas Jerebko. Warriors now with 13 players under contract. Expected to re-sign Patrick McCaw soon and then leave the last roster spot open to save $$$ and keep flexibility
Monte Poole: Warriors indeed looking toward Jonas Jerebko and Pat McCaw, according to 2 league sources. If they land both, all but closes the door on adding an instant-offense type like Michael Beasley or Jamal Crawford.
Mark Medina: The Warriors officially re-sign Kevin Durant. Warriors have 12 players under contract & will be at 13 when Jonas Jerebko signs. They’ll be at 14 presuming Patrick McCaw returns. Warriors likely to keep last roster spot open to save $$ and keep flexibility for next season.
Chris Haynes: Golden State has extended the qualifying offer to guard Patrick McCaw, making him a restricted free agent, league sources tell ESPN.
Logan Murdock: Steve Kerr said he’d love to get younger on the bench: “We’d love to get Loon and Patrick back.”
In less than three weeks, McCaw, will be a restricted free agent, and if all things go his way, he’d be in a Warriors’ uniform come next season. “I would love to be here,” McCaw said. “There’s no other place I’d rather be, this is all I know.”
Patrick McCaw will be a restricted free agent after the season and the second-year wing is “regarded as a top target” for teams as they look ahead to the 2018 free agent class, Bobby Marks of ESPN.com writes. Opposing teams like McCaw’s age and versatility and he could draw offers despite the restricted status.
Bobby Marks: One name that NBA teams have circled for next summer is the Warriors Patrick McCaw. Could come at a high cost for GSW to retain next July.
But if McCaw and the Warriors are intent on continuing their partnership, they could better sculpt a deal that helps both sides. “Who knows where I’ll be,” McCaw said. “Hopefully I’m still with Golden State. …To be a part of this team, this organization the first two years, to learn — because every organization is not like Golden State. To have guys, superstar level talented players taking pay cuts to keep something together means a lot to me being young, having a group of guys who want to be together no matter the cost. It’s huge. It’s unreal I’m in this situation right now.”

Keith Pompey: According to a league source, the #Sixers have had discussions about trading Jerryd Bayless to the #Cleveland #Cavs for Kyle Korver.
Zach Lowe: The two sides haggled over protections on that pick, sources say. OKC pushed for top-20 protected, but ATL got friendlier protections (lottery protected) in the end — likely by rerouting Muscala to a third team instead of OKC.
Marc J. Spears: Warriors @Klay Thompson getting buckets in the Bahamas at Jeff Rogers Celebrity Game. Suns @Deandre Ayton in attendance but not playing after recently finishing summer league action. NBA free agent Shelvin Mack playing, too.

Reyyy explains comic version Adams is “a salt of the Earth fella who’s struggling”. “He’s really tough but he has to learn stuff as we all do. He’s got a really interesting family which is amazing,” he added.
