Report: McGee scheduled to meet with Kings

JaVale McGee is an unrestricted free agent.

And the NBA champion is scheduled to meet with the Kings on Thursday, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.

McGee reportedly met with the the Clippers on Wednesday.

With two remaining roster spots available, is it possible that the Warriors bring back McGee and Zaza Pachulia?

"They want to get JaVale back if possible, but it doesn't look like that's gonna happen," NBC Sports Bay Area's Monte Poole said on Wednesday night.

As for Pachulia:

"He wants to come back," Poole declared. "They like what he did for them last year. So I would say that there's a really good chance he'll be back."

Pachulia made $2.9 million with Golden State last year.

The Warriors could use non-bird rights to give Pachulia up to a 20 percent raise -- about $3.5 million.

Or, he could return on the veteran minimum -- $2.3 million.

McGee averaged 6.1 points and 3.2 rebounds over just 9.6 minutes per game with Golden State last season.

If he ends up in Sacramento, he would join a frontcourt that includes Zach Randolph, Skal Labissiere, Willie Cauley-Stein, Kosta Koufos, Georgios Papagiannis and rookie Harry Giles.

Curry takes small step in recovery

OAKLAND -- Stephen Curry stepped onto the Warriors practice floor Sunday with only his attire and a slight limp giving away his injury status.

Though the Warriors are not yet able to deliver a timeline for his return, Curry will miss at least another 12 days and, realistically, probably closer to four weeks.

The good news for the Warriors is that Curry’s sprained right ankle was not in the walking boot he had worn since sustaining the injury Monday in New Orleans. He was wearing gray sweats over a black pair of his signature shoes.

“He’s doing fine,” coach Steve Kerr said. “No work on the court or anything. Just getting treatment. He seems to be doing well.”

Kerr also provided updates on the other injured players, center Zaza Pachulia and guard Pat McCaw. Pachulia has missed two of the past three games with left shoulder soreness and McCaw has missed the last two games after sustaining a concussion last Monday.

Both, however participated in light, non-contact drills on Sunday.

“We’ll see tomorrow how everybody is (Monday),” Kerr said.

McCaw is listed as questionable and Pachulia as doubtful. Draymond Green, who played 38 minutes on Friday, is listed as probable with the soreness that his nagged his right shoulder over at least the past week.

Steph Curry's game-used 2016 NBA Finals jersey sells at auction for...a lot

Everything Steph Curry touches...turns to cash, apparently.

The jersey that Curry wore during Games 4 and 6 of the 2016 NBA Finals against the Cavs sold at an auction over the weekend, and the winning bidder paid a lot for it.

According to GoldinAuctions.com, the Curry jersey, which he autographed and and inscribed with '2016 NBA Finals Game Used," sold for $58,920. The listing received 28 bids.

Curry wore that jersey in two memorable games. In Game 4, he scored 38 points to help give the 73-win Warriors a 3-1 lead over the Cavs. But the Warriors couldn't close out the Cavs in Game back in Oakland, so they were forced to make a return trip to Cleveland. In Game 6, Curry famously snapped when he was called for his sixth foul. He yelled at the refs and threw his mouthpiece into a fan sitting in a courtside seat. The Warriors would lose that game and go on to drop Game 7 in Oakland, becoming the first team to play a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals.

Curry's jersey was part of Goldin's 2017 Holiday auction and only one item sold for a higher price: 1999 Pokemon 1st Edition PSA GEM MT 10 Complete Set, which sold for $100,655.
