DeMarcus Nelson waived, Jermareo Davidson signed
The Warriors’ best local story of the season has come to an abrupt end: DeMarcus Nelson, the Oakland native and former Vallejo High star, was cut today to make room for forward Jermareo Davidson — a 2007 second-round pick of Golden State who was traded on draft day as part of the Jason Richardson-Brandan Wright deal — to be signed to a 10-day contract.
The move could save the team approximately $200,000, since Nelson’s contract wasn’t set to fully vest until Jan. 10. It would actually be an increase in salary outlay if the Warriors choose to keep Davidson, who can be signed to a second 10-day and then must be released or given a minimum-level contract for the remainder of the season. Since Davidson is a second-year player, a minimum-level deal for him from Jan. 25 on would cost roughly $350,000.
The 6-10 Davidson is averaging 16.1 points and 10.8 rebounds for the Idaho Stampede of the D-League this season. His presence gives Don Nelson another option at power forward, which has been a problem spot all year, especially so now that rookie Anthony Randolph has been “put on ice,” in the coach’s words.

There’s hope for a Hendrix to the Warriors signing in 2 years! Yippee!
Well now Randolph and Wright are gonna lose what minutes they had.
Waive Williams and keep Nelson! Can someone please tell me why Williams is on this team?
Jamareo in the D-League: 16-11-2 with 1.5 bpg in 33min
Hendrix in the D-League: 14-11-2 with 1.2 bpg in 29min
Here’s the kicker, Jamareo has always sucked at rebounding, and really sucked with CHA as far as rebounding goes… Nellie hates the post… when will you beat writers finally call him out on omitting the most important part of the game?

Amazes me on how the Warriors wasted the first few weeks of the season on a guy that they now cut. At the very least they should have been looking at Williams to see what he could bring. Davidson will be used as another pawn in attempt to motivate Wright and Randolph.
I haven’t seen Davidson play- but snapshot judgment is that they should have put Hendrix in a game or two before cutting him.

I saw in the paper that Kurz injured his IT band and was unable to complete practice on Sunday. Didn’t Wright miss the last game with an injury, also? If they’re both out, we could be pretty low on available bigs.

I also wanted to reiterate from your 1st paragraph - he’s our former 2nd round pick. Of course, it’s quite possible it was at Charlotte’s request. It’s also possible that we wanted him then, and have been keeping an eye on his progress for the last couple of years.
Why did Nellie cut Hendrix and turn around and sign another D-leaguer? This is completely insane. What’s going on? Nellie is running amok and destroying the Warriors current and future prospects. Is he trying to get fired by turning the Warriors into a Groucho Marx movie plot? Are Rowell and Cohan resisting firing Nellie because they’d have to pay him, and they’d rather let him destroy the Warriors? This is utterly incomprehensible.
good grief, you people are drama queens.
99% chance this move of picking up Davidson or not picking up Hendrix makes ZERO DIFFERENCE TO ANYTHING.
letting go of DeMarcus instead of Marcus, another move likely to make LITTLE TO NO DIFFERENCE in the grand scheme of things. as smarter less panicky posters have presumed, the move to keep Marcus is probably contract related.
the state of the dubs is not changing with every little move or every single game or every minute played.
Nelson was a feel good story, was really hoping to see him stick around. GS is turning into a sad state of affairs.
I don’t like this move. I think Nelson has a lot of potential, and sometimes, money just isn’t worth losing talent. Anyone believe that Don Nelson just wants to be the only Nelson affiliated with this team? Seems like his personality doesn’t it?
