Warriors, Celtics make Lee-for-Wallace swap official


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/27/2015) What was long reported became official Monday, as the Warriors finalized a deal with the Celtics to send center David Lee to Boston in exchange for forward Gerald Wallace and guard Chris Babb.

The trade was first reported on July 7, but the Celtics needed to make various roster moves in order to facilitate the trade. 

"On behalf of the entire Golden State Warriors organization, we thank David Lee for his contributions both on and off the court over the last five years," Warriors GM Bob Myers said.

Lee averaged 7.9 points and 5.2 rebounds last season in a reduced role, while Wallace was a non-factor for the Celtics, scoring just 1.1 points in nine minutes. 


Celtics send Gerald Wallace to Warriors for David Lee


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2015) The Celtics have agreed to send small forward Gerald Wallace to the Warriors for power forward David Lee.

There will be no picks or cash involved in the deal, per CBSSports.com NBA Insider Ken Berger, who has reported that it's a straight-up deal.

The 33-year-old Wallace bottomed out last year, scoring just 1.1 points in nine minutes per game.

Lee came off the bench to spark the Warriors in the NBA finals against Cleveland, but his 7.9 scoring average in the regular season was his lowest since his rookie year of 2005-06. He did average 5.2 rebounds in 18 minutes per game.


Warriors GM: David Lee's fate not yet determined


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/19/2015) Warriors general manager Bob Myers is making it clear that the team has not made a decision on center David Lee's future, per CSNBayArea.com.

It was reported earlier this week that the Warriors and Lee's camp came to an agreement that the team would look to find Lee a new team this offseason. Myers is suggesting that that move has not been made.

“I know it’s been reported, but we’re still trying to figure out everything with the roster,” Myers said at a season-ending news conference. “At this stage, we usually have more time before the draft or free agency.

“But I won’t sit here and say we’ve decided anything definitively. If I did, I’d probably end up changing my mind, or we would change our mind. Because what I’ll find out now and what we’ll find out is the next seven days prior to the draft and whatever it is until July 1, there’ll be a lot of different things that’ll be thrown at us that we’ll explore. So it’s not the right time to even say we’re absolutely going in one direction or the other.”

Lee played in just 38 minutes over six games during the NBA Finals.


Report: Warriors trying to find taker for David Lee


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2015) After a season of mostly sitting on the bench while being the team's highest paid player, the Warriors and forward David Lee have agreed to part ways, sources told ESPN.

Lee's representatives and the Warriors will work together to find Lee a new team in the offseason.

Lee played 38 minutes over six games in the NBA Finals and he received just 12 minutes in the Western Conference Finals against Houston.


Kerr vows to continue playing Warriors C David Lee


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2015) Steve Kerr has vowed to use Game 3 surprise David Lee more extensively going forward in the NBA Finals.

The center emerged from the bench to give the Warriors a spark. He scored 11 points on 4-for-4 shooting and added four rebounds, two assists and a steal in just 13 minutess. Kerry certainly took notice.

"Yeah, you'll see more of David Lee," Kerr told the New York Post. "He played really well."

Lee, who has been anticipating a trade from Golden State the last two years, had not played in the previous three playoff games and was given just 12 minutes in the Western Conference finals against Houston.


Warriors C David Lee thinks team will try to trade him in offseason


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/4/2015) Warriors center David Lee is about to play in the NBA Finals, but he has reason to think his run with the team might be up after this season, per NBA.com.

Lee, who's role has been dramatically decreased throughout the season, feels like the team will continue to try and move him -- like they've done for the last two years.

"I think they tried to trade me the last two years, didn't they?" Lee said. "That's nothing new, but once again, what's kind of predicted and what ends up happening is not always the same thing. We'll just see what happens. I love it here. We have accomplished a lot here. We'll see once the season's over. The most important thing, though, is getting this ring first and then worrying about that later."

The Warriors are in a position where priority will be to sign Draymond Green to a big-money extension this offseason, and Klay Thompson's extension kicks in next year so that can make Lee's contract expendable.

Lee has played just 7.6 minutes per game throughout the Warriors playoff run.


Warriors C David Lee working to adjust to limited role


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/4/2015) Warriors center David Lee has averaged 31.5 minutes per game throughout his career. During his team's playoff run this season, he's averaged just 7.6 minutes per game. 

The transition to part-time player has been difficult for Lee, per the New York Post.

“It’s a different mental approach,’’ Lee said. “You can’t play the same way in five minutes, can’t let the game come to you and settle in. You have to be more aggressive, can’t come in worrying about scoring, just rebounding and playing with max effort. You got to let it all hang out.’’

Lee's position is a difficult one. He was a featured player on the team until a hamstring injury sidelined him for a while and his role diminished.

“I sat out a significant amount of time [with a hamstring injury]. It’s no fun to sit out and my role changed as I came back,” Lee said. “But most importantly I’ve had a lot of individual success in past seasons, and I don’t think anyone doubts my ability to play this game at a high level.

“The biggest thing is finding a way to put this championship together. All season long, it’s sacrificing, not just me but other guys. That’s what it takes to win a championship. It’s not about me or the minutes at this point.… I’ll be ready to contribute if given the chance.”


Klay Thompson's dad: Warriors will 'go hard' for Kevin Durant


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2015) Former NBA player Mychal Thompson, the father of current Warriors' guard Klay Thompson, claimed to have inside information on how the team will approach the 2016 free agent market. 

Appearing on his Bay Area radio show, Thompson said he "heard it on good authority, ... that they're gonna go hard after Kevin Durant."

Durant's contract with the Thunder expires in 2016 and he'll be a free agent.

"The cap is gonna go up," Thompson said. "David Lee is gonna be off the books. So they are gonna have some salary cap room."


Warriors' David Lee (back) expects to play in second round


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) Warriors center David Lee is ready to return to action after missing the team's first-round sweep of the Pelicans due to a lower back strain, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Lee has seen a reduction in his role this season, as his averages of 7.9 points, 5.2 rebounds and 18.4 minutes per game all fall far short of his production in his first four seasons with the team.

"Although I haven't gotten the minutes sometimes that I've wanted, coach (Steve) Kerr and the rest of the staff has been really cool about being upfront and honest about it and saying that it's circumstance," Lee said. "As a pro, it's my job to stay ready. This isn't about me. It's about our team as a whole, so it's not a big deal at all."

Though Lee didn't play in the first-round series, he was available for Game 4 if needed.

Warriors' Kerr grateful that Iguodala, Lee accepted reserve roles


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Warriors coach Steve Kerr acknowledged Tuesday he's grateful that Andre Iguodala and David Lee each accepted a reserve role on the team, which has contributed to Golden State's 46-12 record this season -- only two wins behind the Hawks for the best record in the NBA.

Iguodala only accepted a role off the bench once in his career, and it wasn't even in the NBA. While winning an Olympic gold medal in 2012 as a member of Team USA, Iguodala took a back seat to LeBron James.

"It's one of the most gratifying parts of the season," Kerr said, per the Washington Post. "That's really what you hope for as a coach. That each guy is going to accept a role and understand that that role is designed to make the team better and that it may cost him some minutes and some points and all that stuff. But if everyone buys in, and believes, you've got a pretty strong, powerful force and I think we've achieved that to this point."

Lee also didn't have any objections to Kerr's plans this season when he was told that Draymond Green was a better fit in the starting lineup.

"I've had plenty of years putting up big numbers, being an All-Star and doing things like that. Now it's time to chase a ring and I love what our team is doing and our chemistry. And the character guys on our team, nobody cares who gets the credit," Lee said. "We know that we have two bona fide superstars in Steph and Klay and everybody else is really here to fill around those guys and to make them as successful as possible."


Warriors PF David Lee scores team-high 19 vs. Cavaliers

(2/26/2015) Warriors power forward David Lee scored a team-high 19 points on 8 of 11 shooting in his team's 110-99 loss to the Cavaliers Thursday.

Lee took more than 10 shots in a game for the first time in nearly a month and delivered his highest scoring total in that same span with his efficient performance, but it wasn't nearly enough to counter a massive effort by Cavaliers SF LeBron James, who scored more points by himself (42) than any two Warriors players combined.

Lee also racked up four rebounds, two assists and one block in 21 minutes off the bench in the loss, his team's second in its last three games. The Warriors will look to get back on track Friday against the Raptors in Toronto.
