Rumor: Warriors Still Flirting with Gary Payton

The Warriors already added a backup point guard to the roster in CJ Watson aka Quiet Storm aka KBLX aka 102.9 aka Mr. 100 after letting the DJ go to seek other gigs, but that doesn't necessarily mean the glove doesn't fit and they'll quit. Find out why after the jump!

From ESPN's Weekend Dime:

Golden State's decision to sign point guard CJ Watson to a 10-day contract this week and make him the 100th call-up in D-League history does not rule out the possibility of Gary Payton joining his hometown team in the season's second half, according to NBA front-office sources.

The Warriors are still flirting with the idea of bringing Payton in to ease the regular-season minutes burden on Baron Davis ... and you have to believe that GP, no matter what he has left at 39, would fit in personalitywise with Don Nelson's edgy crew.

Does the glove still fit?
