Much better acquisition for them than J Crawford (who was also rumored), but it's tough to imagine him seeing many minutes with McCaw emerging and Iguodala retained. The Warriors seem to be ditching the center position as well :laugh:. Or they are just really high on Jordan Bell.

Meh. I guess spend the money if you've got it, but barring injury he's not that big of a factor imo. Better shot than Iggy if he would have had to step in at SG I guess.

Wonder if we'll see variations of lineups with Klay at the 4?

Curry/Livingston/Young/Klay/KD?

Or the opposite and go super long with defense:

KD
Klay
AI
Bell
Dray

Take out bell and put Livingston, and slide everyone down a slot. Lineup switches on everything with ease.

Nick Young gets a lot of hate on this site but man he single handily won some games for the Lakers these past years(which pissed me off because we needed to tank). He's a great three point shooter and I feel like he will only shoot better with all the open 3's he'll get with Curry, Klay, and KD on the floor.

Yeah, West maybe 10-15 minutes combined in a week of games. But Draymond and Bell should eat the majority of the center minutes outside of Pachulia's 15 (unless they don't resign him). Looney I don't see in the rotation. More likely in Santa Cruz.

Unlikely. McCaw has a future with the team. Nick Young is most likely a 1 and done player chasing a ring. Yea hes a good scorer but hes inconsistent and brings little else to the table. McCaw is a very good defender, passer and has an ok shot. Hes young and improving to.

McCaw isn't going shoot 40 percent from 3 like Young. If anything he passes up too many wide open looks because he's terrified to shoot and you need another shooter to complement Livingston and iguodala off the bench like Clark who Young is replacing.

I hate this signing for Young. He could still be a 20+ minutes per game guy on a playoff team, but he went to a place with a stacked back court where he'll struggle to get 10-15 minutes a night. For the Warriors, obviously this is a win, but at what point to they realize "Oh yeah, we probably need to go get a center?" They just keep adding wings and shooters, but their two key bigs from last season not named Draymond Green remained unsigned.

They have Bell now (who I think they plan on playing 15 mpg) and will likely still pick up at least Zaza. I mean you're talking about a team who played these guys less than half the game combined in the playoffs and almost never in crunch time. In the Finals they averaged the 9th and 11th most minutes on the team respectively. They have Draymond and West and Bell and Jones (and Looney) as is to eat up center minutes. They'll be fine there.

As for Young, he has a chance to get some burn on one of the best and most famous teams in history. I think to many that trumps 20 mpg as a backup on playoff fodder.

The Warriors make it fairly simple on him. If he's chucking and missing he won't play anymore that game. If he's hitting he'll go until he wants to come out as long as he's playing defense and moving the ball in the offense.

He averaged better than 12 minutes a game, played 68 games and all of those minutes were at center. The average week in the NBA season is 4 games. That's around 48 minutes a week. Why do you think his minutes will drop so much?

Looney has to either play with the NBA club or they have to send him packing. If he's healthy he'll get McAdoo minutes until he proves he's not up to it.

Meh, would've rather spent that money on an athletic big. He's decent enough I guess. I don't think he'll play much if at all as the season wears on as I expect McCaw to take a major step towards being a future star himself some day. McCaw has Draymond Green's motor and Klay Thompson's humble demeanor. What a perfect combo.

LoL now the Lakers are in the Dion Waiters sweepstakes, even though his numbers last season are almost identical to D'Angelo Russell and he'll be more expensive and very unlikely he chooses the Lakers in any case.

The Lakers traded Lou Williams, who was on a VERY good 3 year contract, essentially for this guy Kuzma who I don't know maybe he gets four rebounds in summer league or something so we can get excited. Traded Russell for air + a Lopez rental. Swaggy walks.

Swaggy signed with GSW for precisely the reason the Lakers now claim everyone will sign with them: a winning culture, a strong championship NBA basketball culture from the top down.

boom congratulations GSW you will love Swaggy he is a really nice player. The media hate on him was partly generated by angry sidelined Kobe who probably didn't like the cockiness and higher shooting percentages, and outsider Magic, who was criticizing anyone and everything about the Lakers in an effort to bring down Jim Buss and Kupchak.

If Swaggy's defense keeps improving like last year, he might turn out to be one of the very best 3 and D guys in the entire NBA. His shooting is for real legit. Rich get richer

It's not that simple considering the Warriors will be paying a lot of luxury tax for the foreseeable future. KD needs a new deal next summer and Klay will need one the following summer.

In all likelihood this will be McCaw's final season as a Warrior.

That's more than I thought GSW would be willing to pay him.

I agree- I think the midlevel should have been used on a big who could start. It seems like a bit much to spend on a 3rd string player who bring nothing to the club that they dont already have. I would have been fine with a vets minimum contract for him.

To be clear- im not saying this because of what I think about Nick Young, I just didnt think he should have been that high on the priority list

Theres actually no Centers available at the mid level you can get. The position is pretty slim this year. I think the Warriors are content with minimum of Zaza or Macgee.

The amount another team can offer him is limited by the Arenas rule, and he'll be a bargain at the price they can get him for and they want him around when Livingston and Iguodala are gone.

Zaza probably and

West, Jones, Bell, Looney, Green, and Durant (played more minutes at 4 than 3 last year) ... that's 7 "bigs" out of 15 players on the roster.

Iguodala, Casspi, McCaw, Thompson, Livingston, Curry, and now Young ... That's 7 wings/smalls.

They have Boucher on a 2-way contract.

So, they have one roster spot for a young shooter/PG/wing defender to develop or veteran big just in case, and one 2-way contract for the best player who will say yes.

Yeah, all right, I get the sarcasm. But if the Warriors had any real "weakness" last season, it was probably the center position as it was the one spot they didn't have ane elite player starting. Green only started 18 percent of their minutes at center. And of the three guys who platooned to get the majority of the minutes, West was arguably the least effective. I just think they shouldn't overlook re-signing the two guys who played nearly half their minutes at center just to acquire a luxury like more shooters that they don't reallt need.

Zaza was the best at setting screens, boxing out rebounders, and position defense on bigs. West was the best on offense by a big margin, and was functional on D. McGee was really only good on late help shot blocking and dunking in very short minutes.

Jones and Bell are being added this year which people seem to forget.

I mean Draymond is 6'5" and he's a top 3 rim protector in the league. Strength/athleticism/wingspan and generally bbiq is more important. He's an excellent post defender with a 7 foot wing span. He could play center, definitely alongside Draymond.
