1. JaVale McGee

The biggest and most likely free agent target that’s next for the Golden State Warriors is JaVale McGee. After the addition of Zaza Pachulia for a second season, McGee’s future with the Warriors is up in the air.

At the most he’s going to get the minimum now and that’s where things might get difficult for Golden State. He really proved his worth after the team brought him in last season and it’s likely he’s going to get a bigger offer from somewhere else.

He brought the highlights on both ends of the floor and was productive despite limited minutes. After bouncing around the league for his entire career, McGee could be ready to finally really settle in a place that embraces him.

Still, this is his chance to get every penny he can get and no one would blame him for going out and getting a bigger offer elsewhere. With the market value of big men, it’s going to be a lot more as mentioned above.

If he does indeed return to Golden State, then this Warriors’ free agency will go down as one of the best they have ever had. That’s impressive to say after the ones they have been able to pull off in recent years.
