“I’ve had this same stigma on me as a player that has had cases in court,” McGee said. “I have the perception of being a distraction on and off the court for some reason. I haven’t done [anything]. Nothing at all. I have the same perception of guys doing bad stuff, getting DUIs and things like that. I have nothing like that. “It’s frustrating knowing how hard you work. That is just the misconception of what people see. It’s just a testimony to keep working hard, stay positive and eventually things will work out for you.”
McGee said he received contract offers from two of the 30 NBA teams and an offer to play in China that he seriously considered. A non-playoff NBA team that McGee didn’t identify offered a guaranteed contract. The other NBA offer was from the Warriors, who offered a non-guaranteed contract paying a veteran’s minimum salary of $1.4 million. Warriors general manager Bob Myers heard nothing but positive news when he did his background work on McGee, which included talking to Warriors forward Andre Iguodala, McGee’s ex-Nuggets teammate. Armstrong said Warriors coach Steve Kerr was a fan of McGee’s and had a vision of how his rim protection and athleticism could help ease the loss of Bogut.
