Jordan Bell and Steve Kerr argued during a game a couple months ago. The incident called attention to greater questions about Bell’s commitment and habits.

Those questions aren’t going away now.

Warriors:

It was telling Golden State signed Andrew Bogut despite already having DeMarcus Cousins, Draymond Green, Kevon Looney and Bell to play center.

Bell has regressed after a promising rookie year. He’s capable of playing versatile defense, finishing above the rim, rebounding and even passing some. He should find a solid role on a team like the Warriors. But he too often drifts into jumpers and doesn’t appear as sharp defensively.

He’ll be a free agent this summer. There’s still time for him to improve his image before then, but this won’t help.
