According to @MikedupRadiocom: @SpearsNBAYahoo @EricPincus Lou amundson to sign with #gsw soon...Donnie Nelson OUT, Assistant Keith Smart taking over.
This kind of fills in the blanks for what Lou's agent was saying about waiting to see how "something" shook out before they signed. He said they would sign quickly once that thing they were waiting to develop was finalized. Guess its on to Barron. (I hope Topher doesnt mind me quoting him)
thats what I found out so far and had to say:
I checked those twitter accounts and there last messeges and couldnt find any indication that either spear or pincus tweeted or said anything about Luo and GSW closing the deal, or nellie being out.
spears tweeted: Warriors sign athletic swingman Rodney Carney, but not close to signing athletic big man Lou Amundson. (on sept. 8th and hasnt said anything else about that since then)
ericpincus actually only retweeted the tweet by mikeup, but had no tweet containing any info about Lou himself.
that doesnt mean it wont happen like this mike said, but there is no indication his "sources" said anything themselves. I think its weird situation and if Lou actually signs with GS, it would be a great loss for us.
What do you guys think?
Correction on my part:
Topher just informed me that I misunderstood the timeline and direction of information. He corrected me and said that this Mike guy informed Spears and Pincus and not the other way around. Still, the word seems to be Nellies is out and that was the only thing holding Lou from signing with GS. Lets see what happens.
