Warriors, Payton Still Discussing Deal
"The Glove" would be a nice addition to the Warriors as well a nice back-up for Baron. Sure he's 39, but still effective with limited minutes I bet. :)

At age 39, he even imagines himself on coach Don Nelson's roster.

"I like Nellie, the kind of ball they play," Payton said during a recent phone interview.

The Warriors, meanwhile, are open to the idea.

"You know what he would bring," vice president of basketball operations Chris Mullin said. "So ... possibly. We're open-minded. There are some ifs on both sides."

Rumors have circulated for a couple of weeks that Payton, who has not played since last season in Miami, is pondering a return. Given the circumstances, the Warriors are a logical option.

"(Oakland) is my home," Payton said, "so I'm looking at it. We've talked back and forth a little bit. They're doing what they have to do, and I'm doing what I have to do. I have a some things to think about, and so do they."

As much as I'd rather him go to GS than Boston..i think he's a better fit in green with the slower pace and opportunity to mentor Rondo.
