JaVale McGee, one of seven Warrior free agents, doesn’t want to leave Golden State anytime soon, as he detailed to ESPN’s Chris Haynes.

"I haven't thought about (another team) mainly because, hopefully, in my mind, I'm a Warrior for the rest of my career," McGee said. "If that happens, it would be a blessing."

The center, who doesn't turn 31 until January, will be heading into his 11th NBA campaign. McGee just went through a roller-coaster season, landing on the trade block at the midpoint of the regular season then shifting in and out of the playoff linuep. McGee started in the opening round, vanished from the rotation during the middle two rounds, then started the last three games of the Finals.

Playing on the veteran’s minimum ($2.1 million), McGee was 16-for-20 from the field against the Cavs. Free agency officially begins on July 1.

"I don't know how (free agency) is going to turn out, but it's going to obviously be a long one, especially with everybody waiting for LeBron (James) and Kawhi (Leonard)," McGee said. "So, you never know what pieces will fall and who needs who. But I want to be back with the Warriors. This is where I want to be."
