    Kerr softens stance, will discuss White House visit with Warriors

    The Golden State Warriors were the last team standing when the NBA season closed in June. Thanks to a preseason trip to China, they are one of the first teams to get going this season as the league gets up and rolling again. The Warriors and Minnesota Timberwolves will hold their media days on Friday and open training camps Saturday, a few days ahead of the rest of the league as they prepare for an early October trip to China for games in Shanghai and Shenzhen as part of the league’s ongoing efforts to grow the game in the basketball-crazy nation.

    Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports / Action Images Fans of the Minnesota Timberwolves should hope Karl-Anthony Towns is a man of his word. The talented young center revealed he made a promise to his former coach Flip Saunders, who died from cancer two years ago. "I made a promise to Flip Saunders that we would win and end the playoff drought," Towns told The AP's Jon Krawczynski on Friday. "And I intend to keep that promise." The Timberwolves haven't qualified for the playoffs in 13 years - the longest drought in the NBA - nor had a winning record since 2004-05, when the late Saunders was still manning the sidelines. There's plenty of reason for optimism now given the internal development of the club's
