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.
Luke Walton is finalizing an agreement with Golden State to become an assistant coach, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) July 1, 2014
Triangle. Stephen Curry = Kobe Bryant. Kevin Love = UGH. Never mind.
The Golden State Warriors are in the market for a back-up point guard. They are weighing several options, according to sources.— Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) July 1, 2014
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.
Wolves still focused on trying to land Klay Thompson from Warriors in Kevin Love deal, sources said, but Golden St still won't budge on Klay— Marc J. Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) July 1, 2014

Despite early interest in Spencer Hawes and Channing Frye, Warriors are turning their concentration toward signing a backup PG, per source.— David Aldridge (@daldridgetnt) July 2, 2014
