James Michael McAdoo agrees to 10-day contract with Warriors
James Michael McAdoo chooses 10-day contract with Warriors over Memphis, a source said— Marc J. Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) January 18, 2015
"(McAdoo) ultimately chose Golden State because of their initial investment in his development and career," his agent Jim Tanner said.— Marc J. Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) January 18, 2015
The former collegiate star at North Carolina has had a sinuous road to the big show. Undrafted in 2014, he was signed by the Warriors in September to undisclosed terms after a successful NBA Summer League season.
Golden State then waived McAdoo, along with four other players, on the eve of the regular season. He spent the remainder of 2014 and the beginning of January playing for the Warriors' D-League affiliate Santa Cruz.
The 6-foot-9, 22-year-old forward has averaged 17.6 points and 9.3 rebounds per game so far this season with Santa Cruz.
McAdoo will add even more depth to Golden State, which has the NBA's best record at 32-6.
