James Michael Mcadoo is going to start a new chapter in his young NBA career. McAdoo reportedly reached an agreement with the Philadelphia 76ers for a two-way contract. Once the deal becomes official, the 24-year-old is parting ways with the Golden State Warriors.

McAdoo's NBA career started with him playing for Golden State in the 2014 Summer League. He went undrafted during that year but the Warriors gave him a chance. Following this, he had the opportunity to suit up for both the Dubs and their NBA G-League affiliate, the Santa Cruz Warriors.

In 2015, he won a championship with Santa Cruz and Golden State. In three seasons with the reigning champions, the former North Carolina Tar Heel played in 108 regular season games. He averaged three points and 1.7 rebounds per contest.

The 2016-17 season is so far the best year for McAdoo in the NBA and with the Warriors. During this stretch, he saw action in 52 games (two starts), the most in his career. He also had 13 appearances in the playoffs. It is uncertain what will be his role in Philadelphia, though it is likely that similar in Golden State, he is going to have assignments in the G-League.

Battle for minutes

As mentioned, it is unknown what will McAdoo be doing with the 76ers.

If they let him stay in the lineup, he needs to outplay three or four guys to earn minutes. The teammates he will be competing with at the small forward position are Ben Simmons, Robert Covington, and Justin Anderson. It is possible that Simmons is not in the running since there are plans for him to be a power forward. However, that does not make it easier for McAdoo.

Covington is one of Philadelphia's best scorers. Meanwhile, Anderson immediately had an impact on the team as soon as he became a part of it back in February. The Sixers acquired him in a trade with the Dallas Mavericks.

Warriors fine without McAdoo

McAdoo's departure will unlikely affect the Warriors. Before he even left, they already found a potential replacement in Omri Casspi.

The 29-year-old from Israel has more experience and at one point in his career was a double-digit scorer. Casspi is also an excellent outside shooter, making him a better fit in Golden State. He is going to be one of the threats from long range joining the likes of the Splash Brothers, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, together with Kevin Durant, Andre Iguodala, Nick Young, Patrick McCaw, Shaun Livingston, and Draymond Green.
