Matt Barnes will host a charity game featuring the current Golden State Warriors against the 2007 teamThe first sign of whether the Golden State Warriors will thrive under a new coach and a new ownership won't arise in training camp or even next season.

It will happen at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 5 at the San Jose State Event Center, where the current team will match up with the 2007 squad -- a fan favorite because of its first-round playoffs upset as an eighth seed against the top-ranked Dallas Mavericks.

Lakers forward Matt Barnes, who played for the 2007 team, will be putting together a list of players until Monday, but there are already a handful who have committed.

That includes current Warriors Monta Ellis, Stephen Curry, David Lee, Dorrell Wright, Lou Amundson, Charlie Bell and Jeremy Bell. Participants from the the 2007 squad include Jason Richardson, Ike Diogu and Al Harrington.

The list also includes some other former Golden State players, such as Gilbert Arenas, Antawn Jamison and C.J. Watson.

And, of course, it includes Barnes himself, who plans to donate the proceeds to his foundation, Athletes vs. Cancer, which raises funds for local health screenings.
