Update: Brandon Rush has agreed to a two-year deal with Golden State, league source tells Yahoo Sports.

The immediate speculation is that Rush, who in his first stint with the Warriors in 2011-12 averaged 9.8 points, 3.9 rebounds with 1.5 three-pointers in 26.4 minutes per game, is now in place to be a replacement for Klay Thompson and Golden State will soon consummate a deal with Minnesota for Kevin Love. The problem is that Rush is nowhere near as strong a player as Thompson, so it may also mean that he'll just be a bench player for the Warriors and Love will end up somewhere else.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr called Klay Thompson recently to reiterate how excited he is to coach him and added not worry about trade rumors.

With the Kevin Love rumors back in full swing, Kerr is trying to just reassure his star that he won;t be part of the package. So based on out last report here at Fantasy Alarm, it would appear the the T-Wolves have lowered their asking price.

The Warriors value Klay Thompson so much that they wouldn't trade him for Kevin Love (which is absurd). The tall shooting guard can shoot the lights out (averaged 18.4 points per game last season), but contributes little in other categories (averaged three rebounds, two assists, and just under one steal per game last season). He will be overrated in most fantasy leagues and be drafted way to high in fantasy drafts.

Ognjen Kuzmic, who played through illness Saturday, will play through a blood blister on his foot Monday.

Considering the way a medical staff can wrap a foot, we hardly thing a blood blister is worth worrying about. Kuzmic should be just fine moving forward.

David Lee had minor surgery to repair a core muscle (pelvic area) and won't be able to train with Team USA in Las Vegas.

Again, the procedure was deemed minor, so while it will take Lee out of the running for a spot on Team USA in the FIBA World Cup in Spain, he should be just fine for training camp.

Shaun Livingston has a sprained right big toe from the playoffs and will be in a cast for 3-4 weeks before being reevaluated.

It's probably nothing that will keep him out of training camp unless he does something stupid to prevent the injury from healing properly. But no NBA athlete would be that dumb, would they?

The Warriors have no plans to offer Klay Thompson to Minnesota, even if Cleveland comes in aggressively for Kevin Love.

To obtain a player of Love's status via trade, a huge prize is going to have to be offered. If Golden State truly wants Kevin Love, they will most certainly have to include Thompson. The important thing to read here is that the Warriors "have no plans" to offer Klay Thompson. Well, plans always change. Keep an eye on this situation.

Andre Iguodala continues to be sidelined after getting an injection for his knee tendinitis.

The Golden State Warriors have officially signed versatile guard Shaun Livingston to a three-year, $16 million deal Friday.

Last year, Livingston averaged 8.3 points, 3.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.2 steals in 26 minutes per game for the Nets but probably won't see as much regular action. He'll pair well with Stephen Curry on defense and stick his big 6-foot-7 body right in the middle, something the Warriors have missed. Fantasy-wise, he's probably just an average play.

Warriors showing that they are willing to help their free agent Jordan Crawford with sign-and-trade deal.

You mean that a team is willing to partner up with someone to take a me first player off their hands? Yeah, total surprise.

Warriors free agent C Jermaine O'Neal still undecided on playing 19th season. He'll reach a conclusion in "next week or so."

O'Neal has resigned himself to a reserve role over the past few season and still deciding whether he has enough gas left in the tank for one more season. If he continues to play, he come off the bench and serve as a mentor to younger players.
