In a two-hour chat with Andris Biedrins and his agent, Bill Duffy, Warriors general manager Larry Riley outlined a complete physical and mental training program for Biedrins to follow this summer.
"It's time to take actions that will get him moving in the right direction," Riley said. "Basically, we're going to rebuild his confidence."
Already a hyper sensitive guy, Biedrins has had plenty of reasons to lose confidence.
Biedrins averaged 190 free-throw attempts a season from 2006-09, but, after shooting a historically low 16 percent from the foul line in 2009-10, Biedrins has shied away from the ball - getting to the line just 56 times in the past two seasons combined.
"Our plan doesn't deal with just the physical aspects. It encompasses the complete rebuilding of his confidence," Riley said. "He's embarrassed, and I put the onus on him. He has to dig in on this, and we're going to support him in every way that we can."
