Bob Myers makes definitive statement about Klay's future with Warriors

Bob Myers makes definitive statement about Klay's future with Warriors

Brian Scalabrine's comments about Klay Thompson created quite the stir in the basketball world on Monday.

On Wednesday, Warriors GM Bob Myers was asked about what transpired.

"I think the hard thing is in this day and age of media, what I'd love to see, is if you're gonna say something like that, or for example write something like that ... and I know Scalabrine, I know him. I represented him. Just call me," Myers said on 95.7 The Game. "Call me and say, 'Hey man. I saw this. I'm gonna go on the radio. Is it true?' And then it's over.

"I wish there was a little bit more discipline because you know what it causes -- I gotta talk to Klay Thompson. I gotta talk to his agent. And I get it, it's part of the job. And there are times where rumors have weight to them and meaning, but I think it requires a little bit more diligence then just throwing stuff out there. 

"It does make for good talk radio and people picked up on it and then you get all these debates. If you look at where he got it, and I think people then dug a little deeper, there's lessons to be learned.

"We're not trading Klay, that's the short answer. I don't know what else you want to talk about."

Did Myers reach out to Klay to tell him what's going on?

"I told Klay, I called him and I said -- Klay doesn't listen to anything. He doesn't even know who we play most of the game (laughing) -- he's not a guy that's reading everything ... he hadn't even seen it. Then I talked to his agent ... the media is very, very powerful. And we're in a very public business.

"And I don't want to sit here and say every trade rumor is wrong because sometimes the media is right. But I think everybody would be better off if we all kind of looked a little closer at things before we said 'em. But that's me. That makes my life easier but I don't think people really care."

Source: Warriors, Curry aiming for Friday return

The Warriors have been without Stephen Curry for six full games and all but the first two minutes of a seventh. The last three were less out of medical necessity than an abundance of caution.

Curry could, however, return as soon as Friday when the Atlanta Hawks visit Oracle Arena, multiple sources disclosed to NBC Sports Bay Area on Monday night. ESPN, citing league sources, was first to report the team’s plan.

The two-time MVP’s right ankle is scheduled to be reevaluated Tuesday, after which time a firm return date is expected.

Curry was physically able to play -- and actually pushed to return -- last weekend, according to league sources. But the Warriors, looking ahead to the playoffs and seeing diminished value in the remaining regular-season games, opted to continue rehabilitation in hopes of maximizing support for the area around his ankle.

The Warriors have described Curry’s injury not as a sprain but a “tweak,” implying less severity.

Though the Warriors won the game in which Curry was hurt, 110-107 over the Spurs on March 8, they have since lost four of six, including 89-75 on Monday in San Antonio.

The Warriors arrived early Tuesday morning and won’t practice Tuesday afternoon and are contemplating skipping an official practice on Wednesday.

The Warriors, averaging a league-leading 115.5 points per game this season, saw that figure drop to 103.3 during Curry’s six-game absence.

Already down three All-Stars, the Warriors lost their fourth midway through the first half on Monday night.

With just over nine minutes remaining in the second quarter against the Spurs, Draymond Green took a knee from a driving Danny Green.

Draymond was in immediate pain and left the court for the locker room.

Just before the end of the first half, NBC Sports Bay Area's Kerith Burke reported that Green was ruled out for the rest of the game with a "midsection issue."

Early in the second half, the Warriors diagnosed that Green suffered a pelvic contusion and that x-rays were negative.

The Warriors are currently playing without Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant. All three are dealing with injuries that will keep them out several games.
