Galloway, best known for his book recounting a pivotal battle in the Vietnam War that was made into a Hollywood movie, has died. He was 79. A native of Refugio, Texas, Galloway spent 22 years as a war correspondent and bureau chief for United Press International, including serving four tours in Vietnam. He then worked for U.S. News & World Report magazine and Knight Ridder newspapers in a series of overseas roles, including reporting from the Persian Gulf War in 1991.

Golden State’s training camp is going to be interesting.

The Warriors have an open 15th roster spot and are looking at two guards/wings to fill that spot (and potentially eat up some minutes until Klay Thompson returns). Steve Kerr has said the team plans a little training camp competition for the slot, if the Warriors choose to fill it. They are bringing Gary Payton II and Mychal Mulder to camp to compete for that spot, but those two are not alone, reports Shams Charania of The Athletic. Avery Bradley and Langston Galloway are getting shots.

Warriors to work out Isaiah Thomas, Quinn Cook, Avery Bradley and others, per report

  Warriors to work out Isaiah Thomas, Quinn Cook, Avery Bradley and others, per report The Warriors reportedly want to sign two guards and a big man for training campThe plan, according to Spears, is for the Warriors to work out a wide variety of free agents. They'll play 5-on-5 with the idea that they will ultimately sign two more guards and one more big man before training camp. Training camp contracts do not guarantee roster spots during the regular season. Teams are allowed to carry 20 players in the offseason but only 15 during the regular season.

Bradley worked out with the Warriors this week and impressed them enough to get invited to training camp. Bradley brings strong on-ball defense, but his offense slipped last season in Houston (less so in Miami earlier in the season), scoring 5.7 points a game in limited minutes and shooting 29% from 3.

Galloway might be the best of this group, having played 40 games for the Suns last season (but he was not part of the playoff rotation), averaging 4.8 points a game but shooting 42.3% from beyond the arc and looking like a rotation player.  Mychal Mulder filled this end-of-the-bench role for the Warriors last season and will be in training camp. Gary Payton II played for the Warriors in Summer League and has a contract guarantee that lands during training camp, but he didn’t play well enough in Las Vegas for the Warriors to give him the job.

Mychal Mulder had this same role for the Warriors last season and will be back in training camp. However, the Warriors are not done, working out veterans Avery Bradley, Quinn Cook, and Isaiah Thomas this week, and two of them could get invites to training camp to fight for that last spot. Marc Spears of ESPN’s The Undefeated breaks it down.

One player who will not be part of Warriors camp is point guard Isaiah Thomas.

NBA season preview: 5 big questions for Golden State Warriors .
The Golden State Warriors are a team with a lot of questions surrounding the team. Which ones weigh the most on the team heading into the season? It seems like forever ago that the Golden State Warriors were the quintessential star of the NBA. However, we've only had two seasons since the Wa rriors were in five straight NBA Finals. This was a team that basically acted as a "final boss" of the entire league. If you don't beat the Warriors, the championship just doesn't hold the same weight. The past two seasons, not only has the NBA been playing through a pandemic, but they also saw the Warriors lose star players and get decimated by injuries.
