Golden State Warriors
December 10, 2011 by staff
Because management is clinging to salary cap space reserved for signing free agents, Golden State opened training camp with just nine available players. And with just as many question marks facing Jackson and his new staff.
How can they remake this team into a defensive juggernaut, introduce a new system, shape a rotation and build chemistry all before the Christmas Night season opener?
How can they convince Monta Ellis that he’s still a part of the team’s plans despite the fact he was dangled to the New Orleans Hornets in a bid to land Chris Paul?
How do they rebuild the confidence of Andris Biedrins?
How do they account for the fact a new big man such as the Los Angeles Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan plus other rotational players still might join the roster?
There remain just 15 days to sort all these matters out, but somehow the rookie coach seems undaunted.
“It’s a lot of things that you have to put in in a short period of time,” Jackson said. “At the same time, it will not be an excuse. We’re going to find a way to get it done.”
Ellis, talking to the media for the first time in months, said he was paying little attention to the team’s willingness to trade him.
