Warriors Rumors: Durant, Jones, New Arena

Kevin Durant has quickly assimilated himself into the Warriors’ offense and his production is comparable to his MVP season in 2013/14, Sam Amick of USA Today points out. Durant is on pace to have the most efficient season of all time for a player averaging at least 25 points a game, Amick notes. The perennial All-Star forward has posted a player efficiency rating of 30.7, higher than the 29.8 PER he had during that MVP season with the Thunder. Unlike the struggles of the Heat’s Big Three during their first season together, the Warriors are already maximizing the talents of Durant, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, as they are taking nearly the same amount of shots, Amick continues. The Warriors are averaging 117.6 points a game, which would make them the most prolific offense since the 1991-92 Warriors, Amick adds.

In other Warriors news:

  • First-round pick Damian Jones is unlikely to claim a rotation spot this season, GM Bob Myers said in a radio interview that was relayed on Jones has been shuttling between the Warriors and the team’s D-League affiliate the past two weeks after recovering from a pectoral injury. The 7-footer out of Vanderbilt has yet to make his NBA debut. He is averaging 2.7 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.3 blocks over 19.4 minutes per contest with the Santa Cruz Warriors. “It’s gonna be hard to crack our rotation,” Myers told radio station 95.7 The Game. “He hasn’t played basketball in seven months. He needs to play a lot more basketball. But we’re encouraged.
  • Rockets star guard James Harden wasn’t upset that Durant left the Rockets off his list of teams that he visited during free agency last summer, Calvin Watkins of writes“It would have been nice for a visit,” Harden told Watkins. “For himself and his family, he made the decision, and he’s very confident about it.”
  • Rick Welts, the team’s Chief Operating Officer, said in a statement the franchise plans to break ground soon on a new arena now that another legal hurdle has been cleared, according to Monte Poole of The California Appeals Court upheld a previous ruling that declared the Environmental Impact Report for the team’s site on San Francisco’s Mission Bay met all required standards. The ruling is likely to be appealed by the Mission Bay Alliance to the California Supreme Court, Poole continues. The Warriors plan to vacate Oracle Arena after the 2018/19 season and move into Chase Center in 2019, Poole adds.

    Durant is great player
    Warriors gave up too much players for him
    The center position is very weak and soft
    Final four and will be knock out
    I guarantee it

      Durant is well worth the players we gave up. We have some decent players in return for the 2nd unit. David West is finding his way… ZaZa passing is way better- n better FT shot than Bogut. McGee excellent rim D an spacing for lobs n put backs. Clark has stepped his game up. We are #5 in D and #1 on O if you haven’t noticed. Are def eff is actually a cpl points better than last season.

        Yea the numbers look good now but look how they have played so far this season against teams with really good offenses. They got blown out by 30 on opening night by the Spurs and the rockets just hung 132 points on them. Even in double overtime that’s a lot of points to be giving up. They haven’t played the Clippers or cavs yet either. So no 5 in defensive is a miss leading stat this far in the season.

      Are you kidding me we gave up too much for KD. ZA ZA is doing a great job as is Javale. I’m curious what game or games have you seen where the center position was so bad that it bringing in KD and dropping a 33 yr old Center with bad knees, back and a host of other problems looked like a bad decision. Also how does swapping Barnes out for a WAYYYYYY better Forward in KD look bad. OK we lost some guys off the bench but its the bench. Those guys come and go all the time. What is barbosa doing this year? Nothing close to what he was with the Warriors. I can honestly say i do miss MO Buckets. That being said our bench has not been bad either. Iggy and Clark are doing a hell of a job and when McCaw gets a couple of months of playing time hes gonna be pretty damn good. Shit hes been solid like the rest of the 2nd unit so keep loving KD and remember the Warriors are fine no GREAT and will continue to be for yrs to come.

    I assume Warriors don’t make trade for center
    also the bench are very weak

    I think an Ian Clark plus change (Varejao, picks, cash) for a Noel type deal would be nice for the Ws…

    Noah has been grinding, but he has never been much more than a nice passing energy guy. He loses every tip (dude, the guy next to you is 7’3″ – let him try?) bricks layups and screams his diaphragm out after every play. We get it dude, you’re intense, but there’s not a lot backing it up anymore. His heyday was guarding Varejao, Ilgauskas and Ben Wallace during the Cavs-Bulls rivalries of days past. Right now, he’d be great on the Warriors to form one third of a whole with Zaza and JAVALE… If they could just morph into one that’d be great

      Bro you are not getting Noah you don’t have the cap what are you going to do to free it up trade klay no even if you could get him he’s passed his prime he won’t do that much the warriors should try to get someone like cole Aldrich or j hill

      • Posey28

        u can’t afford Noah and he’s is undperfoming a lot
