DeMarcus Cousins to practice with team soon?

A day into Warriors training camp, DeMarcus Cousins is making solid progress in his rehab from a torn left Achilles tendon. "I don't think it will take too long before he takes part in practice," Golden State head coach Steve Kerr said Tuesday afternoon. "But for right now, it's important he gets his full workout with the training staff." The 6-foot-11 center, entering his eighth NBA season, will be re-evaluated by team trainers Oct. 22, which rules him out of the team's five preseason games and its first three regular-season games. Odds are, of course, that he'll miss more time.

The last few months I've been thinking he won't play until February. If he comes back by Christmas? Oh boy.

I just don't want him coming back too early and risk re-injuring it for a few extra regular season games.

Source: Patrick McCaw won't sign Warriors offer sheet, will miss start of camp

The Warriors' waiting game with Patrick McCaw will keep going.
"The restricted free agent guard will not accept the Warriors' qualifying offer and will miss the start of training camp, a source confirmed to NBC Sports Bay Area's Monte Poole.
The Warriors are holding their Media Day on Monday in Oakland and will begin camp Tuesday.
The Warriors extended a $1.74 million offer sheet to McCaw, a third-year pro, 12 weeks ago.

As NBC Sports Bay Area Warriors insider Monte Poole wrote Friday:
The lack of McCaw's signature on a contract was not a concern in July or August. But with summer coming to a close, his absence leaves the Warriors wondering if he still wants to explore other options while also forcing them to prepare to do the same.
This is not what the Warriors wanted, nor is it what McCaw needs.

McCaw has averaged 4 points per game in each of his two seasons with the Warriors, giving the two-time defending NBA champions depth at the guard spot.
The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears was first to report the news.

McCaw

Dude is a bum. There were consecutive games where he started when Steph was injured with 0, 0, 0 stats and getting beat constantly in defense. I think he is expecting a big contract for a below average year. He is lucky the Warriors offered him a contract even J. Crawford doesn't have a team yet and he is a lot better than McCaw. There are a lot more guys with the team that's much hungrier than he is.

I dont see how anyone who had a very good/promising rookie year, who had a down year 2, but never ever got consistent playing time due to how good the team is, should be considered a bum.

McCaw could be really good one day. He is still very young. If he was on any other team, he would have gotten a ton more experience than he has for us.
Klay Thompson on Warriors future: 'You just want to stay on the train as long as you can'
Nick Friedell ESPN Staff Writer
OAKLAND, Calif. -- All-Star swingman Klay Thompson again made it clear that he would like to stay with the Golden State Warriors for a long time and is cherishing the current run he and his teammates are on as they enter the collective prime of their careers.
"It's awesome," Thompson said after Thursday's practice. "Makes you want to win now, though, that's for sure. Makes you want to make the most of it. I think we have in the last two years.

"It's crazy because we are back-to-back champs, but at the same time I feel like we're all relatively young and we can still get to another level and keep winning. Not just this year, but years beyond. Not a lot of guys can do that with their team. So I love coming to work every day because I realize this is a special group and a special time to be a Warrior."
When asked if he would be weighing in that factor more heavily as he approaches free agency this summer, the 28-year-old didn't hesitate.
"Yeah, definitely," Thompson said. "I think it would be stupid not to be. It's hard to walk away from something -- you were here when it started and yeah, you just want to stay on the train as long as you can."

The topic of just how long the Warriors' run can continue has been a constant throughout the first few days of training camp. Having won three of the past four NBA championships, head coach Steve Kerr says he wants his players to understand just how special their run is, even as the uncertainty surrounding the futures of Thompson and All-Star Kevin Durant hovers over the organization.

"It's rare," Kerr said. "We know we have a bigger window than most teams do in this position. That's the benefit of winning in 2015 with a very young team and gaining that experience. Obviously adding Kevin. This has been an incredible run that's going to be very difficult to match. But we want to just keep it going for as long as we can. We don't spend a lot of time thinking about where we stand historically; we're just enjoying the process."
Since Monday's media day, the constant mantra from both players and coaches is to enjoy the moment and embrace the journey toward another potential crown this season.

"We've had some success and when you have some success in the NBA it's just always a great time," Durant said. "This stuff comes and goes so fast. Me and Steph [Curry]were talking, you look up and you're in double-digit seasons in the NBA after feeling like we just got drafted, so things happen so fast I think we're all just enjoying the moment, not really thinking about anything else. It's good that we're all young and experience this. It's only going to make us better in the future."

As far as his own future is concerned, Thompson says he is confident he will be able to stay with the team he loves. He knows he'll probably get asked about his future many times as the Warriors travel through the league, but it appears as if he'll have a similar response. He doesn't care about the chatter because he knows where he wants to be.
"It's just how I feel to be honest," Thompson said. "This place, it's home. I love living in the Bay Area."

He's not going to get anything better than the QO with the season less than 3 weeks away. That's being realistic.

Sitting on his butt at home isn't going to get him any security. He needs to swallow his pride, accept the OQ and play well so he can get paid next summer.

I dont see how he gets a better contract. The only thing he could possibly get is a more playing time with a weaker team. I am over the guy as I dont much of an impact anyway and I doubt he would be back in 2019-20 .

Maybe he just doesn't want to play anymore. Could be that injury has spooked him into not wanting play anymore.
