Report: Warriors 'in talks' with free-agent forward

The Warriors are reportedly targeting a former member of the Kings.

Golden State is "in talks" with free-agent forward Omri Casspi, according to USA Today Sports' Amick.

Casspi played for three teams last season.

Over 22 games with the Kings, he averaged 5.9 points and 4.1 rebounds in 18 minutes, while shooting 38 percent from 3-point territory.

Sacramento traded him to New Orleans in the DeMarcus Cousins deal.

In his first game with the Pelicans, the 6'9" forward scored 12 points on 5 for 9 shooting, and broke his thumb.

New Orleans waived him two days later.

Casspi, who just turned 29, signed with Minnesota about a month later.

He appeared in 13 games with the Timberwolves and averaged just 3.5 points over 17.1 minutes per night.

The Kings drafted Casspi with the 23rd pick in the 2009 draft.

On Dec. 28, 2015, Casspi scored 36 points at Oracle Arena, and went 9-for-12 from distance.

The Warriors -- based on reported agreements -- have 11 players under contract, which means they have four roster spots to fill.

Steph Curry, Dell Curry move up on NBA's father-son scoring list

OAKLAND -- In scoring a game-high 29 points Monday night, Stephen Curry lifted the Warriors to a 123-103 victory against the Phoenix Suns while simultaneously putting shine on the family name.

The Currys, Stephen and his father, Dell, moved past the duo of Dolph and Danny Schayes and into second place on the all-time list for father-son combos.

The Currys have combined for 27,226 points, passing the Schayeses (27,218) and trailing only Joe and Kobe Bryant (38,895) on the career combo scoring list.

“It’s pretty special,” Curry said. “I know what my dad in his career, for 16 years, so this is him passing the torch to me.

“And I’m going to try to talk to the rules committee to see if we can get Seth Curry’s numbers in there, too."

Dell Curry retired in 2002 with 12,670 points. Stephen Curry now has 14,556, and Seth Curry has 1,217.

“That's the power of strength in numbers right there. Let’s see if we can catch Kobe and his dad.”

Klay Thompson leaves Warriors-Suns out of caution, ankle sprain not serious

OAKLAND -- A sprained left ankle forced Klay Thompson to leave in the third quarter of the Warriors’ 123-103 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Monday night at Oracle Arena.

The sprain was described as mild and Thompson could return to the lineup Wednesday night, when the Washington Wizards come to Oakland.

“He just told me he was fine,” coach Steve Kerr said. “He said he could’ve gone back into the game. We’d taken him out for precautionary reasons.”

Thompson played 25 minutes, totaling 16 points (6-of-14 from the field, including 1-of-6 from deep), four assists, three rebounds and two blocks.
