  • So, Nick, you covered this team all season.

  • Do you think the fact that he opted out and basically what was on the table is if he adopted in, he would basically make the Warriors pay for rehabbing him for the year, and then he could become a free agent next summer?

  • That was one of the options, right?

  • That option is off the table now.

  • It's gonna be almost two years before you get back on the basketball court and you gotta have confidence to bounce back from this type of injury is gonna take some time for him to hell and I just don't see a team saying three years he'll be ready, right?
