Bob Myers Rumors

Warriors buying a second-round draft pick?

Warriors owner/CEO Joe Lacob dropped by the ESPN2 set live from the NBA Draft combine at the Barclays Center in New York on Friday to talk all things draft. Lacob said this was the second time he’s been at the combine, which precedes the June 21 draft. The event primarily features second-tier prospects, which works out well for Lacob and the Warriors who sit No. 28 in the draft. “For us, it’s (players drafted) 20 to 40 or 20 to 50. Those are the players that are here to some extend,” Lacob explained. “And that’s where we are — 28. Maybe we’ll buy a second-round pick again. I’m very aggressive with respective to those, as you know.”

At 6 feet 11, Jarron Collins would easily be the tallest active head coach if he got hired. And he’d be the only former center. Is it really a story? “It’s a fair question,” Warriors general manager Bob Myers said. “I’m not sure the ‘why’ of it because I hadn’t really thought about it. But certainly, in a sport where there are a lot of big guys that are in coaching, maybe they’re not getting opportunities.”
95.7 The Game: Bob Myers on if it’s possible Stephen Curry could play in Game 1 on Saturday via Papa & @BontaHill: “He’s getting close. So, conceivable? I don’t want to put a percentage on it because I don’t know, but I’m not saying inconceivable.”

The Warriors have been in discussions with point guard Quinn Cook about a multiyear deal that would turn his two-way contract into a standard NBA deal, a team source has confirmed with The Chronicle. […] “Quinn is a guy Steve (Kerr) has leaned on and the players have come to trust,” general manager Bob Myers told 95.7 The Game on Wednesday afternoon. “It’s conversations we’ve had. We’ll have to come to some type of decision prior to the last game of the season.”
Storyline: Quinn Cook Free Agency
“Clearly a 3-pointer or a layup is better analytically,” Myers said. “But not if there’s a hand in your face or you’re falling out of bounds or you’re going against a 7-foot guy at the rim.” Which makes the mid-range shot the flip phone of the NBA. It’s out of style, a relic from another era, and it’s undeniable there are better options available. But it can still get the job done. “The idea is to score more points than the other team,” said Golden State assistant coach Ron Adams. “You’re going to do that in a variety of ways.”
