OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Steve Kerr played golf with Stephen Curry, traveled to Australia to meet with Andrew Bogut and spoke with every other player on the Golden State Warriors in some form or fashion this summer.
The Scoop:Noticeably absent from that list is veteran Jermaine O'Neal, who has been mulling retirement this past offseason. This does not necessarily mean he is not returning to the Warriors, Myers could be simply counting the bodies he knows are already in the fold. Still, it is concerning that O'Neal is yet to commit to playing next season. Either way, O'Neal's days of fantasy relevance are long over.
The Scoop:Kerr said he also wants Bogut to be aggressive and called him one of the best passing centers in the league. Of course, the Warriors are going to want to keep his minutes in check if they want to keep him healthy for the post-season. If you want to spend a late-round pick on him, then make sure you're not going to be too attached to him when the injury bug starts biting him.
The Scoop:"My body feels great," said Bogut, who returned to working out in mid-June after his fractured rib healed. "All of my injuries have been of the high-impact variety. The only thing I can do to change that is to be a p*** and avoid contact at all costs.. I'll still take charges and go for blocked shots. Every now and then, I'll get a knock." Bogut was impressive while on the court last season, averaging 7.3 points, 10.0 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks per game, however he is a huge injury risk as he only made it through 67 games. The last (and only) time Bogut made it through a full season was in 2006, so he's only worth a gamble in the very late rounds of your draft.
