-Spurs clearing space (Gasol $16M), possible moving Parker's last yr (15M) to get Paul
-Clippers - Word is West is realistic and doesn't think this group can can Warriors may blow it up - Jordan was offered to Suns for #4 - Rejected
-Kings rejected 5 and 10 for #2 - Lakers trying to get George
-Jazz looking to get Beverley, who I would like for Warriors (5.5M)

What realistic mmlves would worry Warriors:

-Spurs if they keep core and get Paul
-Cavs if they get George for Love

Warriors qustions:

-Is Iggy essential?

FAs: Iggy, Livingston, Za Za, McGee, West, Clark, Barnes

-HEARD CHIP CARAY TALKING ABOUT THE BRAVES---THEY JUST GOT OLD AND BAD AND STARTYING UNLOADING EVERYONE BUT FREEMAN AND TEHRAN ---

PROBLEMS W/ GIANTS:

-PITCHING: 5.53 ROAD ERA 28, 4.79 OVERALL STARTERS ERA 23RD

*PEN ERA: 4.03 (12) - '10 2,99 (2), '12: 3.56 (10) , '14 3.01 (5)
*DON'T HAVE A SHUT DOWN STARTER TO STOP LOSING STREAKS

-EVERYONE BUT POSEY AND PANIK ARE DOWN
-START OF SEASON UNJURIES AND ISSUES
-PEN IS NOT GREAT, JUST OK
-STARTING PITCHING IS NOT GOOD, JUST OK
-12-28 ON ROAD - ONLY A'S AND PHILLIES ARE WORSE

TRADE: Cueto, Melancon,

IF BLOWN AWAY: BELT, SAMARDZIJA, NUNEZ

Many teams are expected to pursue discussions with Iguodala, including the Warriors, Utah Jazz, Los Angeles Clippers, Chicago Bulls, Minnesota Timberwolves and Atlanta Hawks, league sources said. Among teams around the league, there’s a belief that the value this summer for a two-way wing such as Iguodala could reach $20 million annually.

do they win thr title w/ out Iguodala? Likely.

-at some point Warriors will have to make tough decsions:

CURRY , DURANT, KLAY, GREEN --ANYTHING ELSE IS GRAVY --RING CHASERS EVERY YEAR...

-CELTICS TRADE DOWN TO #1 FROM #1 --- DON'T LIKE THE MOVE ----

*GET LAKERS PICK IN 18 IF IT FALLS BETWEEN 2-5

BAGGS SAYS MEANCON IS NOT MOVING:

[The Giants] are not wired for a rebuild. Realistic or not, they anticipate returning to contention next season -- and having a solid closer in Melancon will be a part of their plan,” writes Andrew Baggarly of the Bay Area News Group.
Baggarly also reports Melancon is dealing with a lingering forearm strain, an issue that would derail any deal.
MELANCON WAS 47-51 LAST SEAOSN --10-14 THIS SEASON

Kevon Looney       $1.5M

Patrick McCaw      $1.3M
>> Kevin Durant: $27.7M player option
 
Kevin Durant
- Assuming Durant declines his $27.7M player option and becomes a free agent, there is no real incentive for him to sign long term this offseason. Because he changed teams via free agency last offseason, the Warriors only have Durant’s “Non-Bird” rights. That means they can only sign him to the same deal as the rest of the league: 4 years, $152M. During the 2018 offseason (if KD signs a 1-year deal this summer), the Warriors can offer Durant a 4-year deal for a projected $160M, which would be the same years and about $6.5M more than other teams. Durant will have to wait until he’s played 3 seasons with the Warriors for them to have his full Bird Rights, which would allow them to offer a 5-year deal for a projected $217M during the 2019 summer.

Kevin Durant Projected Max Contracts - Re-Signing with Warriors by Offseason Signed
      Years    Dollars     Avg Annual Value
2017    4        $152M          $38.0M   
2018    4        $160M          $40.0M   
2019    5        $217M          $43.4M

- If Durant did decide to go the long-term route this offseason, there would be 3 potential outcomes, all of which would be a maximum of 4 years in length.

Kevin Durant – Projected Max Contract Options
                 Yrs/Dollars    Signing Mechanism
With Warriors      4/$137M       Non-Bird rights
With Warriors      4/$152M       Cap space
All other teams    4/$152M       Cap space

Stephen Curry
- The Warriors can offer Curry the 5-year/$205M super max, while all other teams can only offer 4-years/$130M.
Stephen Curry – Projected Max Contract Options
          With Warriors    All Other Teams
2017-18        $35M              $30M

- Golden State does not own a pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

What Durant taking less would mean for Golden State's future
League sources say that Kevin Durant would be willing to take less than his max salary in order to keep the Warriors’ core intact. Here are the potential implications of such a decision that KD and the Warriors will have to ponder this summer:

Why it would help
Without needing to use cap space, the Warriors can offer Durant a 120 percent raise on his 2016-17 salary, which would amount to $31.8M, via the “Non-Bird” exception. However, as a 10-year veteran, Durant will be eligible for a 2017-18 max salary of $35.4M based on the projected $101M salary cap for a team using cap room to sign him (including the Warriors).

Kevin Durant Potential 2017-18 Max Salaries by Signing Mechanism
Non-Bird Exception      $31.8M
Cap Room                $35.4M

By re-signing with the “Non-Bird” exception, the Warriors would stay as an “over-the-cap” team. That would allow them to keep cap holds on free agents like Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston and thus be able to go further over the cap to re-sign them to new contracts.

If the Warriors use cap space to give Durant his max, they would need to renounce the cap holds to many of their non-Curry free agents, and thus they would only be able to offer various exceptions like the room mid-level that’s for far less than what Iguodala and Livingston could earn on the open market. Steph’s “super max” extension is not dependent on Durant, nor would Steph taking less make a difference since the Warriors don’t need cap space to give him his “super max” deal.

But there is a cost
If the Warriors re-sign Curry to a super max and Durant to the one-year deal for $31.8M, then Curry, Durant, Thompson and Green by themselves would account for slightly more than the entire $101M salary cap.

Kevon Looney, Damian Jones, Patrick McCaw and the stretched Jason Thompson combined account for about another $5M. With the luxury tax projected to be $121M, paying Iguodala $15M and Livingston $10M (probably very conservative estimates just for the sake of the example), that would already put them $10M over the luxury tax before using any cap exceptions or re-signing key contributors like Zaza Pachulia, JaVale McGee, David West and Ian Clark.

With the Warriors’ “Core Four” likely to make roughly the salary cap next year and probably more in future years with the cap expected to stop growing, maintaining depth (the whole point of having Durant take less) will be very difficult without making prodigious luxury tax payments.

How long can the Warriors stay together?
If Curry and Durant re-sign as expected (Durant likely will be a one-year deal but he seems to expect to stay long term), their next major contract issue will come up in two years when Thompson becomes a free agent and then three years with Draymond Green. Assuming Curry signs a super max contract, the Warriors will have to decide between offering Thompson or Green a super max deal as teams are only allowed to have two such contracts on their books.

If they give Thompson the super max, then in 2019-20 just Curry, Durant and Thompson would be about $5-10M over the cap to say nothing about Green’s $18.5M deal (that would be due for a sizable raise the following year) and the rest of the roster they have to fill out. Cap projections two years out are very subject to change, but the point remains that it would take a sizable luxury tax payout to keep the Warriors’ Core Four together with any kind of a bench this far down the road.

Because of that, the Warriors could eventually have to decide between going all in on this core while Thompson (two years remaining) and Green (three years remaining) are on relatively cheap deals signed before the cap spike or eventually trading one of them for cheaper pieces before their next contracts become unbearable to the team’s cap.

STATS:

Warriors capture 5th NBA title: Greatest team ever?
- The Warriors secured their 5th NBA title in franchise history, tying the Spurs for the 4th-most in NBA history. The only franchises with more than 5 are the Celtics (17), Lakers (16) and Bulls (6).

- The Warriors beat opponents by an average of 13.5 PPG this postseason, the 2nd-best in a single postseason in NBA history, minimum 5 games.

Best PPG Diff in Single Postseason – Min. 5 Games
1971 Bucks      +14.5
2017 Warriors   +13.5
2001 Lakers     +12.8
1991 Bulls      +11.7

Best Record in Single Postseason
2017 Warriors    16-1
2001 Lakers      15-1
1983 76ers       12-1

- From 2014-15 through 2016-17, the Warriors are 254-54 including the regular season and playoffs (win pct of .825). That is the best record in NBA history for any team over any 3-season span, surpassing the Bulls, who went 248-56 from 1995-96 to 1997-98 (win pct of .816).

Stephen Curry joins elite company
- Stephen Curry is the 9th player with two NBA titles and two MVPs. The other eight are Tim Duncan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, LeBron James, Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell, Michael Jordan and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

- Curry had one of the best postseasons of his career. He averaged a playoff career high in FG pct and had his 2nd-best 3-pt FG pct and PPG in a postseason of his career.

Stephen Curry – This Postseason
                     Career-Best?
PPG          28.1       No (2nd-best)
FG pct       48.4       Yes
3-pt FG pct  41.9       No (2nd-best)

- Curry joins Karl Malone as the only players with multiple MVP awards, three trips to the Finals and zero Finals MVPs to their names. The big difference, of course, is Curry has two titles while Malone had none.

Stephen Curry's 26.8 PPG are the 5th-mostby a Finals winner who didn't win the Finals MVP.

Kevin Durant
- Assuming Durant declines his $27.7M player option and becomes a free agent, there is no real incentive for him to sign long term this offseason. Because he changed teams via free agency last offseason, the Warriors only have Durant’s “Non-Bird” rights. That means they can only sign him to the same deal as the rest of the league: 4 years, $152M. During the 2018 offseason (if KD signs a 1-year deal this summer), the Warriors can offer Durant a 4-year deal for a projected $160M, which would be the same years and about $6.5M more than other teams. Durant will have to wait until he’s played 3 seasons with the Warriors for them to have his full Bird Rights, which would allow them to offer a 5-year deal for a projected $217M during the 2019 summer.

Kevin Durant Projected Max Contracts - Re-Signing with Warriors by Offseason Signed
      Years    Dollars     Avg Annual Value
2017    4        $152M          $38.0M   
2018    4        $160M          $40.0M   
2019    5        $217M          $43.4M

- If Durant did decide to go the long-term route this offseason, there would be 3 potential outcomes, all of which would be a maximum of 4 years in length.
