The deal is for the veteran’s minimum, bringing the reignining NBA champs’ roster to 15 guaranteed contracts.

The 7-footer ended up appearing in 77 games, averaging 6.1 points, 3.1 rebounds and close to 1.0 blocks per game.
Prior to Golden State, the 29-year-old McGee enjoyed stints in Washington, Denver, Philadelphia and Dallas. He holds career averages of 7.8 points 5.0 rebounds and 1.6 blocks.
