Is JaVale McGee coming back to Warriors? 'I hope so'

Is JaVale McGee coming back to Warriors? 'I hope so'

JaVale McGee spent the first eight years of his NBA career bouncing between four different teams.

Then the Warriors came along and took a flier on him prior to the 2016-17 season, signing him to a one-year contract.

He played a career-low in minutes per game, but he made the most of his time on the court, as he recorded the highest field goal percentage of his career.

And he became a cult hero with Warriors fans due to his numerous high-flying alley-oop dunks, garnering some of the loudest cheers among fans.

Now the free agent center hopes that he's found a home in Oakland.

Prior to his JugLife Celebrity Softball Game at the Oakland Coliseum on Saturday, McGee was asked if he think he's coming back to the Warriors for the 2017-18 season.

"I hope so, I hope I'm coming back," McGee said, according to KTVU.

Free agency begins July 1.

WATCH: Klay Thompson stuffed by rim on 360 degree dunk in China

Maybe Klay Thompson should stick to 3-point shooting and defense.

Riding the high of winning his second NBA title, Thompson is touring China and tried to execute a 360 degree dunk on an outdoor court.

It didn't go well at all.

Thompson got stuffed on the front of the rim and went crashing to the asphalt. He was sprawled out along the baseline for a few seconds before returning to his feet.

No word on the health of the rim.
