“I could’ve went to vet camps but it’s not what I was looking for,” the 28-year-old McGuire added. “The main thing for me is security — if I have to get that overseas — I have no problem doing so.”
However, the Fresno State graduate revealed that his goal this season was to showcase his talents in attempt to pursue an NBA comeback next season. “I’m definitely trying to get back into the NBA. I’m not done with that. I came to Israel to see how (life and basketball) is overseas, but the goal is to get back to the league. I have a guaranteed contract with no outs, so I’m gonna stay here for the year and hope for the best,” Dominic McGuire said.

McGuire’s plan for trying to stick with Utah? “Just continue playing my game,” he said. “Being aggressive, talking on defense, being a quarterback out there. And continue taking open jumpers. I’ve been working on that so hard.”
Make no mistake, this is Mark Jackson’s call. Management gave Jackson (who coached McGuire last season) veto power since he will have to blend in whoever they sign. And he is not a fan of McGuire taking minutes away from his rookie.
Warriors fans, Dominic McGuire is not coming through that door. And guess who you should blame? GSW did not sign McGuire, the defensive specialist who became a fan favorite with the Warriors last season, because he would probably end up taking minutes from Draymond Green, a source said.
General manager Bob Myers said he had cordial talks with Jackson daily about who might fit and reiterated that it didn’t make any sense to bring in a player to sit on the bench. There was some talk about guards Maalik Wayns and Chris Douglas-Roberts, forwards Josh Childress, Dominic McGuire and Chris Wright and center Mickell Gladness. But the Warriors agreed that Thomas was the right guy, because he’s a defense-first wing who is athletic enough to finish in transition – some of the very attributes the Warriors lost when Brandon Rush tore his anterior cruciate ligment in the season’s second game.
If they brought in McGuire, he’d be the guy to go guard a great perimeter player for a few minutes at a time, and maybe to close the game. Earlier, I asked Mark Jackson about the possibility of adding McGuire, who was such a strong defensive presence for the Warriors last season and often was Jackson’s defender-of-choice down the stretch of tight games. “Well, he was great for us,” Jackson said of McGuire. “I’ve got a lot of love for him. I appreciate his professionalism, the way he battled, the way he competed, the way he defended 1 through 4 and sometimes 5. He closed out ballgames for us when we needed a stop.
The Warriors have two open roster spots and are discussing whether to add a veteran player for the stretch run–and probably will add somebody soon, co-owner Joe Lacob said before tonight’s game. When I asked Lacob if former Warrior Dominic McGuire, currently a free agent, was under consideration, Lacob said that McGuire’s name hadn’t come up yet but that he might be an option. Lacob said that adding a veteran at a minimum salary wouldn’t put the Warriors over the luxury-tax line since these deals are now pro-rated against the tax-line, and they’re just enough under to add somebody. (I didn’t know about the pro-rated part.)
The Indiana Pacers announced Thursday that they have signed 6-9, 235-pound forward Dominic McGuire to a second 10-day contract. McGuire has played in two games for the Pacers, starting one.
Dominic McGuire has been signed to a 10-day contract to play for the Indiana Pacers, the team announced just after noon today. “McGuire, a 6-9, 235-pound forward, has been with six different teams in his six-year NBA career, most recently the New Orleans Hornets,” said a news release from the Pacers. “He played nine games with the Hornets this season, averaging 2.1 points and 3.1 rebounds per game.
The New Orleans Hornets waived backup forward Dominic McGuire on Friday after he played in nine games. McGuire, 6 feet 9, 235 pounds, averaged 2.1 points, 3.1 rebounds in 16 minutes per game.

As he searches for the best landing spot, free agent forward Dominic McGuire is receiving interest from several NBA teams, his agent told RealGM. McGuire, 27, averaged 2.1 points and 3.2 rebounds for the Raptors this season. He was released on Nov. 30 despite starting in nine of 15 games. “He’s proven that he’s a very good NBA player and we’re evaluating the right situation for him,” agent Mark Bartelstein said.
After a prolonged offseason, free agent guard/forward Mickael Pietrus and the Toronto Raptors have agreed upon a one year deal worth the veteran’s minimum, CSNNW.com has learned. The deal will be finalized Friday morning and Pietrus is expected to suit up Friday night when the Raptors host the Phoenix Suns. Bill McCandless, the agent who represents Pietrus, confirmed this agreement to CSNNW.com via text message. “It has been a long journey and a long summer,” McCandless told CSNNW.com. “We started this process first off with high expectations in July and had a bunch of phone calls. We spoke with Chicago and Houston early on. As we got deeper in the year, we had conversations with Atlanta, Minnesota, and Toronto.
Mickael Pietrus has reached agreement on a one-year, veteran-minimum contract with the Toronto Raptors, agent Bill McCandless confirmed to RealGM on Thursday night. The deal will be made official Friday, McCandless confirmed. “It came down, in the end, to choosing the team who liked him best,” said McCandless.
Dominic McGuire will be waived by the Raptors to make room on the roster, agent Mark Bartelstein told RealGM. Pietrus, 30, has averaged 8.4 points and 3.1 rebounds in his nine-year NBA career with four different teams. Pietrus, who has been training in France for months, has established himself as a solid outside shooter and a top-tier wing defender when healthy.
