And while the rest of the NBA is caught by surprise with the Kyrie Irving trade request, the Golden State Warriors are doing their best to keep their championship roster together. The Warriors won the title convincingly last season, losing only one game throughout the entire postseason. They dominated the Cavaliers in five games in the Finals, and Kevin Durant won the Finals MVP award.

Durant then proceeded to re-sign with the Warriors this summer and Golden State also locked up Stephen Curry on a new, five-year contract. Some key bench players from last season, such as David West and Shaun Livingston, will also be on the roster for the next season and it seems like the Warriors will be the heavy favorites to win the championship again.

McGee back in Oakland

ESPN's Chris Haynes reported on Friday that Javale Mcgee and the Golden State Warriors have agreed to a one-year deal that will bring the 29-year old center back to Oakland. Haynes reported that McGee will sign for veteran's minimum as he looks to make an impact with the Warriors again, especially on the defensive end.

McGee entered the league in 2008 and was the 18th overall pick, drafted by the Washington Wizards. He played his best basketball with the Wizards during the 2011/2012 season as he averaged 11.9 points and 8.8 rebounds per game that year.

He played 77 games for the Warriors last season and averaged 6.1 points and 3.2 rebounds per game. Golden State will look for him to rebound the ball and play defense next season. He is a seven-footer with great length and solid athletic abilities, and he showed last season he knows his role with the Warriors.

The Knicks get their veteran point guard

The New York Knicks have been looking for a veteran point guard this offseason, and it seems like they finally got one. Ian Begley of ESPN reported on Friday night that the Knicks have agreed to sign a one-year deal with Ramon Sessions. Sessions is a 6-foot-3, veteran point guard with playoff experience.

He is a 10-year NBA veteran and no doubt the Knicks will benefit from having him on the roster next season.

Sessions played 50 games for the Charlotte Hornets last season and averaged 6.2 points and 2.6 assists per game. His 2016/2017 season ended earlier because of a meniscus injury but it seems like he's ready for the challenge that's ahead of him in New York. It is still unclear whether or not Sessions will be the starting point guard for the Knicks next season, but surely he has all the tools necessary. He holds career averages of 10.6 points, 2.7 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game.
