James McAdoo, whose 10-day contract with the Warriors expired Wednesday night, will head back to Golden State’s D-League affiliate, a source tells Diamond Leung of the Bay Area News Group (Twitter link). The power forward had been with the Warriors affiliate prior to signing his 10-day deal. He remains eligible to sign another 10-day contract with Golden State later this season.
The Grizzlies reportedly had contact with the Jim Tanner client before he inked his 10-day deal, and they, too, are still eligible to sign him, just like any NBA team, even as he heads back to Golden State’s affiliate. McAdoo appeared in three games during his 10-day stint with Golden State, totaling 14 points and five rebounds. He’s averaged 17.6 points and 9.3 rebounds in 32.6 minutes per game in the D-League.
The end of McAdoo’s tenure with the Warriors leaves the team with an open roster spot. GM Bob Myers has touted roster stability, and the team seems to have abandoned its pursuit of Ray Allen, at least for the time being.
