Summer vacation is almost over. Media day and training camp is almost here.
With the "Don Nelson as the head coach" question virtually behind us (Larry Riley still needs to make a formal announcement on Monday), the Golden State Warriors players, coaches, and their fiercely loyal fans gear up for another season of basketball action. We start first with the annual media day on Monday Sept 27th, and then we get right into the camp on Tuesday. You can see live coverage of Media Day from Warriors 2010 Training Camp Central (bookmark that!). We'll most likely have an open thread for it also.
Update1: Media Day will begin at 11am PDT on Monday.
Update2: A live press conference will begin at 10am PDT on Monday.
The Warriors signed 5 new guys to push the training camp roster to 19 players: Jeff Adrien, Vernon Goodridge, James Mays, Cheyne Gadson, Aaron Miles. Looks like nobody from our Summer League got signed for training camp. Some quick research showed that Aaron Miles signed with the Warriors in 2005-06 as an undrafted rookie, but was released midway through that season. If you guys know some background info on the these guys, please share!

- The general feeling among the Warriors insiders is that they are in a mildly happy wait-and-see mode about Riley, Smart, the starting lineup, and the bench.

- At the moment, the Warriors are likely to hang on to their current roster until the trade deadline, so they can see what they have.
