Alfonzo McKinnie served as Kevin Durant’s backup in Golden State. Could he do the same thing in Brooklyn? With the Warriors planning to waive McKinnie on Saturday, former Nets assistant general manager Bobby Marks — now with ESPN — said his former team would be “at the front of the line” to add the 6-foot-8, 215-pound forward should he clear waivers.
Bobby Marks: Alfonzo McKinnie has hit the waiver wire and is now eligible to be claimed up until 5PM on Monday. McKinnie has a $1.58M non-guaranteed contract with no trigger dates.
Chris Fedor: #Cavs have, indeed, discussed the possibility of claiming Alfonzo McKinnie, sources tell @clevelanddotcom. But there are many things for them to consider, including how much they need a big for that 14th roster spot with injuries to John Henson and Ante Zizic.
Anthony Slater: Source: Alfonzo McKinnie's deal with the Warriors is non-guaranteed. Won't become fully guaranteed for the season until Jan. 10th. He enters season as 14th man, but Warriors maintain extra flexibility (for McCaw or otherwise).
Anthony Slater: Alfonzo McKinnie sealed up this Warriors roster spot the past two games: 21 pts, 10 rebs in 38 mins. He's a long wing, active but patient, defends multiple spots. Seems to time rebounds well. Question, as with many fringe wings, will be whether he can consistently hit the 3.
Shams Charania: Sources on @TheAthleticNBA @WatchStadum: The Warriors and forward Alfonzo McKinnie have agreed to a two-year minimum deal, clearing way for him to be 14th spot on regular-season roster.
Eric Koreen: Raps officially waive Alfonzo McKinnie, as was reported yesterday. Raps have about $134.8-million committed to 12 players.
