Lee (stomach) is said to have an "automatic" starting spot under new Warriors coach Steve Kerr, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Lee was included in trade talks surrounding Kevin Love this summer, but with Love set to join the Cavaliers, Lee remains with the Warriors as the team's starting power forward this season. Although coach Kerr is thought to prefer a 'stretch four' at the position, Lee's production of 18.2 points and 9.3 rebounds last season is certainly welcomed. After overcoming a minor surgery to his pelvic area in July, the veteran big man will once again start next to center Andrew Bogut for Golden State this season. Nonetheless, it will be worthwhile to monitor how Kerr manages Lee's minutes with lineup combinations in the early going.

David Lee has withdrawn his name from the USA national team training camp roster after undergoing a "very minor" surgery to address a core muscle injury.

The Warriors expect Lee to fully recovered by early August, but he doesn't want to rush a return. Warriors coach Steve Kerr stated that Lee is "fine," and added that he's been working out. This seems like a very minor procedure, and Lee should be ready to go for the start of training camp next season.

Steve Kerr has talked with both David Lee and Klay Thompson regarding all the trade rumors that have come up lately involving Kevin Love.

"They both get it," Kerr said. "I told them, 'I know you get it. It doesn't make it any easier.' But this is why you really get paid... You get paid because you can get traded, and you have to uproot your family. You can get hurt, you can get booed, and people on the message board are crushing you. That's where you actually earn your money in this league, where it actually feels like work." Talks between the Warriors and Timberwolves have stalled with the Warriors refusing to include Thompson in a deal that would net them Love.

Steve Kerr said Friday that he envisions David Lee starting, but made comments that suggest his minutes could take a hit.

"That's where I think Draymond Green and Harrison Barnes can make a big difference if we go small," Kerr told KNBR on Friday. "Their ability to shoot threes is big." Kerr would also add, "I love Lee, and I think he's going to be our starter, and he's going to score a lot and be our slasher and our interior scorer. But we need to complement that with some perimeter shooting from that spot, too."

The Warriors are deciding whether they're prepared to include David Lee in a deal for Kevin Love and Kevin Martin.

It seems Klay Thompson is certainly going to be included and also the Wolves want to get rid of Martin's contract. They gave Martin a four-year, $28 million deal last summer, which seems like a steep price. It would appear giving up just Klay wouldn't be enough, but the loss of Lee wouldn't be too bad especially with the emergence of Draymond Green. This deal could have some legs.

The Warriors have reportedly "lowered the bar" for trading David Lee, in the hopes that they can unload the $30.5 million remaining on his contract.

Flipping D-Lee could give Golden State enough salary-cap space to pursue another star player, such as Kevin Love or Carmelo Anthony, and coach Steve Kerr has been open about his desire for a stretch-PF. Warriors beat writer Marcus Thompson has been told to "watch out for Orlando as a potential trade partner," but for now it's closer to being a rumor than a report.

As rumors continue to swirl around Kevin Love, the Warriors have emerged as potential suitors.

While the Warriors don't have draft picks to offer like the Celtics or Suns, they could put together an enticing package involving the likes of David Lee, Harrison Barnes, and Klay Thompson. Sources say that Love has stressed to management that he's desperate to get to a winning situation, and the constant losing over the past six years has worn on him. There's going to be a lot of rumors going around, and let's be clear that currently nothing is imminent.

David Lee fouled out in the fourth quarter with 10 minutes remaining, finishing with eight points, nine boards, three assists, one steal and one turnover.

This game was a fouling fest early on and it led to Lee getting an early exit. The Warriors will have to lean more on Marreese Speights and Draymond Green with Jermaine O'Neal (knee) also out for the night.

David Lee double-doubled in Tuesday's 113-103 loss to the Clippers with 18 points, 10 boards and four assists in 28 minutes.

The Warriors actually won the battles in points in the paint and rebounds tonight, but the Clippers have just been exploiting the Warriors due to a lack of a center. Lee had a tough time guarding DeAndre Jordan tonight and he's dealt with some struggles in low-post defense. He'll look to get it turned around in Game 6 on Thursday with his team down 3-2.
