OAKLAND (KRON) — Warriors fans can finally be at ease as the champs have officially re-signed center Javale McGee, according to ESPN’s Chris Haynes.

McGee returns on a one-year, veteran’s minimum deal.

The Warriors now have a complete 15-man roster with players having a guaranteed contract.

In his first Golden State campaign, McGee saw less than 10 minutes of court time in his 77 regular season appearances.

The nine-year veteran averaged 6.1 points, 3.2 rebounds and nearly one block in his short stints and put up similar numbers in 16 playoff games on his way to a championship ring.

But despite the minimal action, McGee’s impact was certainly felt with his energy, high-flying dunks and defensive rejections at the rim.

By bringing McGee back, the Warriors now return 12 players from their 2017 title run.

Other players that re-signed prior to McGee include Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Shaun Livingston, Andre Iguodala and David West.

Curry received his $201 million max-deal while Durant took a pay-cut to help the Dubs retain veteran two-way stud Iguodala.

The Warriors also signed wings Omri Casspi and Nick Young, whose three-point shooting gives Golden State more firepower and depth on its bench.

As for McGee, a second go-around in the Bay Area could end the same way it did this year — with the Larry O’Brien trophy.
