08:13 AM ET 01.04 | While Rodney Carney may wind up a roster casualty, Jeremy Lin, who isn't far removed from a stint in the D-League, and Acie Law have heard guaranteed great news. Warriors general manager Larry Riley confirmed on Monday that the team will guarantee the contracts of Lin and Law for the remainder of the season. But Riley said no decision has been made regarding Carney, the third player on the team who has a non-guaranteed contract. NBA contracts become guaranteed on Jan. 10, so if the Warriors are going to waive Carney, it would likely come as soon as Wednesday.

I thought Don Nelson's exodus will lead to better days in the bay state no.. they had to keep on with with the dumb moves. That's why they are the stupid warriors. A harvard grad needs to be confined in some lab working on cure for cancer and aids so I can live a carefree lifestyle. Why in world would you give someone that has a brain a guaranteed NBA contract?

...and we care about this because... Anything that remotely resembles a big man, the Warriors find reason to get rid of, but we're suppose to get excited about 2 D-League guards--next story please.

I would have thought so seeing as how last year they had 300+ missed games to injury.

Whether or not I agree with the decision, the Bricks at least make an effort. The Warriors haven't made an intelligent personnel decision in years.

Not everyone is a NYK fan. There tons and tons of Warrior fans here. Hello? Warrior fans?

Yupp... they got sold, drafted another guard as always and paid David Lee 80 million.... what the freak... then to add insult to injury they take a Harvard grad and give him a guaranteed contract while there's still no cure for epilepsy. NBA millions are for vagabonds from broken homes like Lebron and Eddy Curry.... what the hell Warriors? What basketball value do you see in Lin..

Attention brainiacs: Lin has major upside. He will be an NBA regualr rotation player. This was an easy decison for anyone who can judge young talent.

Wow Jeremy.

You mean.....the GM didn't even call you himself, you had to read about your contract extension on T&R?

Gotta be the Warriors......because we ALL know that if Isiah hadn't had his sex-harrassment case, he'd still be a part of the Knicks organization (LOLOLOL).
