Dear god, NOOOOOO!!!!

Who will fluff the towels and ladle up the Gatorade now??

I read under some article a lot of fans complaining about team letting Chris walk. They even compared that to the Lin thing, and said that it was Riley's mistake, and that this is going to be Myers'.

Oh, yeah, they were also mentioning how he got as much highlights (of dunks) in one match, as some players get throughout the season.

When Lin played here, he showed glimpses of what he was capable of. Can't say the same for Wright, imo.

Even if he DID show flashes of game, Chris Wright is an NBA player. Of course he's capable of looking like a stud; anyone at the pro level should be able to do that in short bursts. We can't let our strange "the-one-who-got-away" relationship with Jeremy Lin effect our decision on every other bench ridden contract that we don't plan on renewing.

If Mickell Gladness dicked off and threw down 360 double-pumps during lay-up drills, would our fan base be clamoring for his return too?

$4 million isn't enough for all 3 of those dudes. And Nate won't be back unless he wants another $1 million, one-year deal. The Dubs would rather take their chances with Jenkins.

Would you rather have Sheldon or JJ over McGuire?

Only 4 mill to spend, that is a bomber then, in that case I would just go with BPA which would be Hickson. Then plug the center positin with Beans, and whoever scrub we can pick up to fill in the middle.

Nate would be value-able to the team since I believe he is one of the sure slashers that can get to the rim, but yeah $1 mill won't keep him here. There is alot pending on a healthy Curry then, he goes down, who ever is back-up better be ready.

Two things:

A) Brandon Rush

UPDATE: The Warriors have expressed a desire to bring back restricted free agent Brandon Rush next season. But according to Matt Steinmetz of CSNBayArea.com, first the money has to be right, which means somewhere close to the $2.96 million he made in 2011-12.

Golden State can't afford to match offers much higher than that without being hit by the luxury tax, and Toronto is a team that could look to pry him away.

"According to sources, one team considering making an offer to Rush is the Toronto Raptors, who had hoped to sign Nash," writes Steinmetz. "The Raptors had allocated significant money to Nash and now will look elsewhere -- and perhaps toward Rush."

Golden State Warriors like what Brandon Rush brings off the bench and Tuesday they secured the right to make him a restricted free agent.
According to The Oakland Tribune, the Warriors tendered Rush the $4,385,416 qualifying offer, which allows them to match any offer sheet he may sign.

"We have a restricted free agent who we really like, and who we're going to keep," says general manager Bob Myers.

Rush will be an unrestricted free agent in 2013 if he only signs the qualifying offer.


Looks like we're going to let of McGuire too =\

Dominic McGuire fits the mold of a Mark Jackson type of player; gritty, hard-nosed, defensive-minded, high-effort. But Matt Steinmetz of CSNBayArea.com writes today that he may not return to the Warriors next season.

Steinmetz reports that Golden State has shown interest in free agents J.J. Hickson, Jordan Hill, Antawn Jamison, Kirk Hinrich, Shelden Williams, and writes that McGuire "doesn't seem to be a priority for Golden State."

In order for McGuire to find his way back on the Warriors' roster next season, the team will probably have to miss on all of their other free agent targets; with three rookies coming in, there just isn't room for more than one or two roster spots.
From "we believe", to "we belong", to "we gon beatcho ass!"

Jamison is the only guy on that list I'd want above McGuire; especially now that Hickson is off the board and Jarrett Jack has been aqcuired. Hinrich is no longer needed, Shelden Williams and Jordan Hill haven't proven enough to me that they are no longer bench scrubs getting paid on potential. I'll take McGuire any day.
