As Brady Klopfer tweeted earlier, the Golden State Warriors had a busy Friday, punctuated by the signing of Alfonzo McKinnie.

McKinnie signed a two-year non-guaranteed deal with the Warriors earlier today — for those concerned about Patrick McCaw’s fate (AND WHO ISN’T?!?!?!?), McKinnie’s non-guaranteed status means that it’s still possible for McCaw to re-sign, as Brady described here earlier. Prior to the McKinnie signing, the Warriors waived Deyonta Davis, Kendrick Nunn, Danuel House Jr., and Tyler Ulis. They also signed Jaleel Cousins, brother of DeMarcus, to Exhibit 10 contract.

But let’s learn a bit more about McKinnie, who really seemed to solidify himself as the front-runner to claim McCaw’s potentially-vacated roster spot in the last preseason game against the L.A. Lakers.

And Anthony Slater summed up some of his strengths in a tweet earlier today, including an aspect of his game that we might want to watch for tonight.

As announced by Warriors PR just a few minutes ago, McKinnie will be part of the starting lineup tonight in place of Kevin Durant, who is taking a rest.

So let’s see what we think of our possible McCaw replacement — watch along with us and share your thoughts in the comments below.
