Warriors general manager Bob Myers, whose club lost big men Andrew Bogut, Festus Ezeli and Marreese Speights in the purge to make room for free agent Kevin Durant, said he had "a conversation" with Okafor a couple of months ago and will monitor the big man's progress.
In the meantime, the Warriors have signed veterans David West and Zaza Pachulia to fill the void.
"We have 14 players right now, but you learn every year that someone you didn't expect to be available becomes an option,'' Myers said. "Ideally, you try to have the flexibility to keep a spot open in case that happens.''Emeka Okafor working out in hopes of returning to NBA, agent says
