Free-agent center JaVale McGee told ESPN he wishes to return to the Warriors and has no desire to relocate.
"I haven't thought about another team mainly because, hopefully, in my mind, I'm a Warrior for the rest of my career," he said to on Monday, six days before the free-agency period begins on July 1. "If that happens, it would be a blessing." Steve Kerr stayed with McGee as his starting center in the opening round of the playoffs against the Spurs, then changed course in the next two rounds, but in the Finals, after surviving Game 1, he went back to him. His run in the last four games might have earned him a spot on next year's team but it's not a guarantee and the Warriors might try to become younger this offseason.
