(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. AP Photo Planned.) By JANIE McCAULEY AP Sports Writer Andris Biedrins received a specific assignment from his new coach: rebound every ball possible and block shots.
Sounds simple enough, though Biedrins struggled to handle even his most basic of tasks the past two seasons.
Coach Mark Jackson isn't worried about getting much more than that from his 7-foot Latvian center. The Golden State Warriors have plenty of other go-to guys who can take care of the scoring load.
They might even have finally found a player to take some of the pressure off Biedrins, signing Clippers center DeAndre Jordan to a four-year offer sheet Sunday that Los Angeles can still match in the coming days.
