    Getty/Eric Espada Jonathan Kuminga of the Golden State Warriors embraces teammate Anthony Wiggins against the Miami Heat at FTX Arena in Miami. As the Memphis Grizzles wrapped up their series in Minnesota on April 29, it meant the Golden State Warriors have to make the quick flight into Memphis to prepare for Game 1 on May 1. That means the Dubs only managed to get three days off rest, despite closing out their first round series in five games. Nevertheless, the Dubs are facing a drastically different opponent in the Grizzles compared to the Denver Nuggets. Per NBA.com Stats, the Grizzles led the league in pace at 102.92—that’s about five points faster than both the Nuggets and Warriors at 96.70. Depending on how Steven Adams is employed by the Grizzles, Kevon Looney could see his role completely disappear. The Athletic’s Anthony Slater recently reported that someone within the Warriors thinks the series will eventually switch to small ball—similarly to how the Grizzles and Wolves series went. “But someone internally within the Warriors predicted recently that centers wouldn’t last...
    Rookie Jonathan Kuminga’s first taste of the playoffs came in garbage time. With the Warriors’ comfortably in the lead for Games 1 and 2 of this first-round series against Denver, Kuminga sopped up a collective seven minutes of playoff action with one point scored on a free throw. In Golden State’s eventual Game 4 loss to the Nuggets on Sunday, coach Steve Kerr had far more significant plans for the 19-year-old. The Warriors were in desperate need for an offensive spark off the bench when Kuminga entered the game at the 11:11 mark of the second quarter for Nemanja Bjelica and he earned his right to stay on the court the rest of the quarter. Kuminga scored nine points on 3-of-4 shooting, his one miss was from beyond the arc. His first field goal, a soaring dunk in transition on a heave from Steph Curry, stunned the crowd in Denver. And while Kuminga looked a little confused at times — some of teammates had to point him in the right direction on defense — his potential as a lethal scoring...
    Getty Kevon Looney goes to the basket in a game against the Dallas Mavericks. For the first time this season, Kevon Looney watched the start of a Golden State Warriors game from the bench. Head coach Steve Kerr removed the veteran big man from the starting lineup in Friday’s game against the Atlanta Hawks, inserting rookie Jonathan Kuminga instead. The move was one forecast by insiders as Kuminga took on a steadily bigger role and the Warriors struggled to score with Steph Curry out of the starting lineup. It’s also a move that some consider a forecast for the playoffs, when Kuminga may be trusted with an important role. The latest Warriors news straight to your inbox!

    Getty/Eric Espada Jonathan Kuminga of the Golden State Warriors embraces teammate Anthony Wiggins against the Miami Heat at FTX Arena in Miami. Not always do contending teams have youthful talent that not only is on the roster, but plays meaningful minutes in the rotation. Although James Wiseman has had a lost sophomore season marred by his knee injury, the Golden State Warriors managed to grab 7th overall pick Jonathan Kuminga in last year’s draft. The 19-year-old started his career off slow, only playing a total of 101 minutes in October and November combined. However, his numbers have climbed up with each passing month. The long absence of Draymond Green opened the door for more minutes for the young high flier—and the teenager seized the opportunity and ran with it. In February and March combined, Kuminga is averaging about 14.5 points and 4.75 rebounds in 25.2 minutes per game. What’s even scarier is that the rookie is just scratching the surface with his potential. Amongst his rookie class, Kuminga is ranked No. 1 in points per 36 minutes with...
    Bob Myers’ phone should be buzzing all week. With the NBA trade deadline rapidly approaching, the Warriors’ general manager has until Thursday at noon to decide which calls and texts he actually wants to answer. “We try to do our work early,” Myers said at a press conference last week. “Every team does. If you don’t have to make a move, it means you’ve maybe got some things right. It doesn’t mean we won’t. I don’t think we feel urgency, but we’re always listening and talking and seeing if something comes up.” Myers will undoubtedly pick up the phone when other executives dial, but this year, he’s clearly operating from a position of power. Following the Warriors’ 110-98 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday evening, Golden State is 41-13 and in second place in the Western Conference. Entering the season, the Warriors hoped to reestablish themselves in the upper echelon of the NBA. With nearly two-thirds of its games in the rearview mirror, Golden State is now seen as a legitimate championship contender. ...
    Getty Jerami Grant drives the ball in a game against the Milwaukee Bucks. The Golden State Warriors are largely expected to stay put at the upcoming NBA trade deadline, but one insider believes the team could keep an eye on a forward who has been called the “grand prize” of this year’s trade season. While much attention has been paid to the drama surrounding Ben Simmons and whether he can find a way out of Philadelphia, Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer noted that Detriot Pistons forward Jerami Grant is actually seen by league insiders as the best player with the highest likelihood to be traded before the February 10 deadline. With the Warriors looking to contend for a title, one insider believes they could keep a close eye on Grant’s selling price to see if he might fall in a more attractive price range.

    Getty Jonathan Kuminga goes up for a dunk in a game against the Chicago Bulls. Jonathan Kuminga made the most of his first opportunity to jump into the regular rotation for the Golden State Warriors, and one insider believes that the rookie’s breakout performance could help him stay there on a permanent basis. The No. 7 overall pick had a slow start to this season after suffering an injury during the preseason, but on Friday had the chance to play his most extensive minutes of the season. Kuminga entered during the first quarter against the Chicago Bulls and was on the court for the entirety of the fourth quarter, helping secure a 119-93 victory with the help of a pair of highlight-reel dunks. The performance earned some praise from his coach and teammates, and could now help vault Kuminga from the end of the bench and into a spot in the rotation.

    Getty Bradley Beal reacts to a play in a game against the Houston Rockets. The Golden State Warriors appear to have few holes in their roster and still have the added boost of Klay Thompson coming later this season, but one insider believes the team could still pull off a long-rumored trade for an All-NBA guard should the opportunity arise. The Athletic’s Tim Kawakami broke down the factors that have gone into the league-best 10-1 start for the Warriors, making note of the NBA-best defensive rating and MVP-caliber play from guard Steph Curry. But Kawakami also suggested that the roster could still improve, pointing to Bradley Beal as a potential addition. The latest Warriors news straight to your inbox!

    Getty Steph Curry guards LeBron James in a January game. The Golden State Warriors have one big priority this offseason, but LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers could be standing in the way. Golden State’s front office has made it clear that adding veteran players is a top priority this offseason, a goal that reportedly comes at the urging of the team’s trio of star players and has a greater sense of urgency after snagging two top 15 draft picks who could use some guidance. But finding the right players are the right price could be harder than the team first envisioned, a new report suggests.
