Chris Webber Set to Return to Warriors (Associated Press Jan. 28, 2008)

BS Ranch Perspective

There was a good reason that the Pistons got rid of Webber, and that was that he cannot run up and down the court and do what he used to do any more, he is another Shack, he doesn't know that he is finished in Basketball.

Chris Webber set to return to Warriors

29 minutes ago

Free-agent forward Chris Webber is set to rejoin the Golden State Warriors. Webber sent an e-mail to The Associated Press on Monday night confirming he will sign with the Warriors. The team said it has no announcements planned for Monday night.

Webber was acquired by the Warriors in a draft-day trade with Orlando in 1993 after becoming just the second sophomore ever to be the top pick in the NBA draft. He won the Rookie of the Year award and made the playoffs in his only season in Golden State.

But Webber clashed with coach Don Nelson and demanded a trade before his second season, and was eventually dealt to Washington in November 1994 for Tom Gugliotta and three first-round picks. At the time, Webber cited unhappiness over Nelson's sometimes abrasive coaching style as a main reason for his wanting out of Golden State.

Webber has not played in an NBA game since the Detroit Pistons lost to Cleveland in last season's Eastern Conference finals. The Pistons did not bring Webber back this season and he has been looking for a team to join.
