The announcement is a good sign that the the players are in top condition and that the 18-man roster is deep as it appears.
David Lee said he expects floor minutes to be more evenly distributed because of the depth to which Jackson agreed.
"I think with the great depth and the versatility, it will allow me to avoid putting a demand on these guys that I did in the past," Jackson said.
Part of that depth and versatility is first-round pick Nemanja Nedovic who plays both guard spots and made his training camp debut today. He's competing with Kent Bazemore for the fifth guard spot.
"We’re not asking him to come in and be lights out from Day 1," said Jackson "We’re a very good basketball team, and we’re going to be very patient with him.”
Rookie center Ognjen Kuzmic is also competing for a reserve role and it's possible he and Nedovic spend time on the Warriors bench while seeing action in D-League Santa Cruz this season.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported earlier that Bazemore received a bloody nose after running into a pick during the morning session. Bazemore is okay.
Training camp resumes on Thursday.
