David West gave up a lot of money to chase a ring. He tried it in San Antonio, but he got what he wanted in Golden State last season, playing a key role as front-line depth for the juggernaut in the Bay Area.
Now he’s going to stay with the Warriors and give it one more run, reports David Aldridge of TNT and NBA.com.
The deal is reportedly for the veteran minimum, which in his case is for $2.3 million. West played just under 13 minutes a game for the Warriors last season, but his role increased in key playoff matchups where his shooting helped space the floor and his physical defense was welcomed.
Why come back? It’s all about the winning. As Aldridge noted, watch his speech from the night the Warriors won the title.
