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." Salt Lake Tribune

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. Sulia

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.

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.) San Jose Mercury-News

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.
