WARRIORS SUMMER LEAGUE ROSTER

The Warriors are in the thick of the free agent frenzy this off-season with the unexpected opt-out of Baron Davis. All of a sudden, they are the team with the most cap space and the ability to offer the most money to any of the top free agents. While all that drama plays out, the Warriors stil lhave to get ready for two summer leagues - Las Vegas and Salt Lake City, Utah. The Warriors announced the roster and schedule on Wednesday and it goes a little something like this:


Marco Belinelli - 6'5" G 192 03/25/86 Italy
Dion Dowell - 6'7" G/F 205 06/11/85 Houston
Richard Hendrix - 6'9" F 255 11/15/86 Alabama
Rob Kurz - 6'9" F 232 03/05/85 Notre Dame
Reggie Larry - 6'6" F 255 10/20/86 Boise State
Jamaal Moore - 6'6" G/F 195 07/06/85 Rice
Anthony Morrow - 6'5" G 210 09/27/85 Georgia Tech
DeMarcus Nelson - 6'4" G 200 11/02/85 Duke
Anthony Randolph - 6'10" F 205 07/15/89 LSU
Mykal Riley - 6'6" 185 07/14/85 Alabama
Tamar Slay - 6'8" 220 04/02/80 Marshall
C.J. Watson - 6'2" 175 04/17/84 Tennessee
Brandan Wright - 6'9" 205 10/05/87 North Carolina
Ian Young - 6'3" 200 09/27/81 Auburn

Louis Amundson is also rumored to be invited to join the team, but no official word has been given on his participation.

With the exception of DeMarcus Nelson and Reggie Larry, no one from my Summer League wish list was chosen to be on the squad. My #1 guy, Julius Hodge will play for the Nets; #2 Courtney Sims with the Pacers; #3 Pat Calathes with the Heat; #4 Jamont Gordon with the 76ers.
