The Golden State Warriors have two open roster spots and according to The Oakland Tribune, co-owner Joe Lacob said the team might fill the 14th position before the end of the regular season.
That spot might go to a former member of the team -- Dominic McGuire.
"He was great for us, and I have a lot of love for him," said head coach Mark Jackson on Wednesday night. "I appreciate his professionalism, the way he battled, the way he competed. ... I'm very comfortable and confident in our guys. But we will talk, ownership and management, and make a decision which way we will go. Dominic McGuire is a guy who's out there."
McGuire played well for the Warriors last season, especially on the defensive end of the floor. The Warriors are not strong defensively, so bringing McGuire back makes sense.
The Warriors are currently about $295,000 below the luxury tax and they can sign McGuire and still stay below the threshold by giving him a rest-of-season contract for the veteran minimum. McGuire has already played this season with Indiana, New Orleans and Toronto.

I would LOVE McGuire.
PLEASE, Joe... Bob... Logo... WHOEVER is mulling this around, MAKE it HAPPEN.
I've been clamoring for a shut-down perimeter defender for months; was willing to deal Barnes or Klay to get one. If McGuire is an option and there are two open roster spots, there is NO reason not to go out and get him. For real.
At this point, they don't need another front court player. They need a guard. Preferably a point guard, especially if Jack plans to keep taking the second most shots in the game. He's basically a shooting guard for the Warriors.

Game 5 vs the Spurs Richard Jefferson checking in, was on the spurs side. Manu and Duncan did not take kindly to it, and Jefferson did not really react (which I did not like), strange stare down though by Duncan near the end.
