The Warriors have to get the roster down to 15 by Monday at 3 p.m. They have 16 players in camp (including Monta, who, technically, isn’t in camp). That means one has to go. Who would you cut?
Or, do you waste some money and dump someone else, keeping the two young shooters around?
The Warriors could cut Marcus Williams (assuming they can’t find a trade partner) and eat the $1.2 million. If Nellie isn’t going to play him, it might be worth the money to sever ties and let him walk, ending that distraction and giving him a chance to sign elsewhere.
Or, they could cut Richard Hendrix, an even cheaper move.
I say cut Kurz. He’s played well, but he’s not going to play, and his upside isn’t strong enough to keep around. By all accounts a good guy, but I’d rather keep the other guys who may actually contribute. Kurz just costs too much to keep around.
