    Marcus, it’s amazing that your story was posted at 10:28 a.m., yet it’s 9:40 a.m. as I write this. This is truly scooping the world! What else can you tell us will happen?

    Now we just need to get Jeremy Tyler on the floor (seems like he needs a whole lot of work!) I love the way Klay shoots and handles the rock. I can’t wait until he puts on the bulk and strength required to guard and absorb the big strong 2’s and 3’s in this league.

    What about Tyler?

  • PerryB

    I understand now that Tyler is signing a deal too.

    That’s great that the Warriors held out their rookies out of precious practice time so that they could sign… Kwame Brown!

    Klay will displace Wright by the end of January at the 3 and will be runner-up in the Rookie of the Year balloting.
