The Warriors have a few days to make a decision on Marco Belinelli, who they drafted No. 18 overall in 2007. The time to lock him up through next season is before this season starts (correction: Oct. 31). If the Warriors want to keep him for one more year, after this one, they need to pick up the option by … If they don’t, Belinelli will become a free agent at season’s end. (Ditto for Brandan Wright, but their is no question they will pick up his option. They also need to pick up the option on Marcus Williams to keep him from becoming a free agent at the end of this season)
So, if you’re the Warriors’ brain trust, do you pick-up Belinelli’s option, giving him a third year? Or do you cut your losses now and let him walk after this season?
