Bob Myers describes best part about Andrew Bogut returning to Warriors

Warriors center Damian Jones sustained a season-ending pectoral injury on Dec. 1 in Detroit.

Shortly thereafter, Golden State connected with Bogut about a possible return.

On Friday morning, Warriors GM Bob Myers shed light on the process of reuniting with Bogut during an appearance on 95.7 The Game.

"Andrew, because he's loyal and because it was partly his team in Australia, was saying, 'Look, I'm not gonna leave now. I can't do that to my teammates and my organization. But if you're still interested when my season is over...' 

"And Bogut didn't bail on his team. He waited until they were out of the playoffs. He said, 'Worst case, early March I'm done. If you're still interested, let me know.' So that's how that thing started.

"And it was quiet because so many things can change. If a wing had gotten hurt, maybe we would have had to go wing."

Well, no wings on the Warriors got hurt, Robin Lopez didn't reach a buyout with the Bulls by March 1 and Bogut is rocking a Warriors uniform again (and getting standing ovations from the fans at Oracle).

"The best part of the story is that Andrew wanted to come back," Myers explained. "In this business, there's so much opportunity for people to not get along.

"Relationships are often broken and not repaired. And so to sustain a relationship with a guy that we actually had to trade ... he could have not come back. If he had any negative feelings about us, he's just gonna say, 'Hey, I'm flattered. I'm not coming.' Or not even picked up the phone.

"The better part is he had a rapport with our players; with Steve (Kerr). It's a testament to our culture that a guy had a good enough time that he wanted to come back."

Or, the guy just really missed playing poker with Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

Warriors’ NBA draft lottery picks since 1990, ranked from worst to best

It's been a while since the Warriors had an NBA draft pick in the lottery.

But due to Kevin Durant's departure and injuries to Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, the Warriors own the worst record in the NBA and will have one of the top picks in the 2020 draft.

Before general manager Bob Myers and the Warriors' front office add a top talent to the roster, let's look back at all the lottery picks the franchise has made since 1990.

From Tyrone Hill in 1990 to Harrison Barnes in 2012, here are the Warriors' last 17 lottery picks ranked from worst to best.

Trae Young says he'll catch Steph Curry as NBA's best shooter in 1 year

Trae Young says he'll catch Steph Curry as NBA's best shooter in 1 year

In light of the coronavirus outbreak putting all American sports on an indefinite pause, hot takes have become the topic du jour for fans relegated to their homes.

While joining “The Big Podcast with Shaq,” Atlanta Hawks star Trae Young was pressed on the many comparisons the young point guard draws to Warriors star Steph Curry.

On the subject of taking over Curry’s title as the NBA’s most feared shooter, Young doesn’t think it will be long before he overtakes Steph.

It’s hard to take any stock in this statement given how much Shaq pressed the 21-year-old to answer.

But Young’s talent is unmistakable, and there’s a chance we’ll see Young resetting the record books one day the way Curry has throughout his 11 years in the NBA.

A year though? I’d imagine Curry and his teammates would disagree with that timeline.
