Free Agency Roundup: Close to Luke Walton, backup PGs, and latest on Love

New, comments

Lots of things in motion. Of the circular kind.

Jonathan Daniel

Day 1 of free agency brought us the scintillating signing of Jodie Meeks to a contract worth about $19 million through three years. Other than that, it's been a heaping mess of interview set-ups, live look-ins to LeBron James' dinner parties, and a whole bunch of conjecture. So let's start with things in Warriors Land that might happen, from most likely to the bleh.

Triangle. Stephen Curry = Kobe Bryant. Kevin Love = UGH. Never mind.

Shaun Livingston, Rodney Stuckey, Isaiah Thomas are some of the names thrown out of the Warriors' interest. Pau Gasol and Channing Frye remain forwards that would fit nicely into the rotation and Steve Kerr's theoretical offense. The Warriors have a massive trade exception that will expire on July 10th. They also have the mid-level exception to play with but will go over the luxury tax line if they use the entire space of both options. There are sign-and-trade options (one with Steve Blake's name thrown out) but not anything possible without some "cap gymnastics" as Zach Lowe would say.

/heads straight to toilet while combustibly dry heaving.

UPDATE:

DOES THIS MEAN THE LOVE TRADE IS FINALIZED?! SIGN ISO JORDAN CRAWFORD BACK I DON'T CARE JUST GET KEVIN LOVE. /BACK TO PUKING.
