Boris had two main suitors in this FA period. Truly, there was one that was interested in him for a long time, and another (the Thunder) that attempted to swoop in later in the process and sway Mr. Diaw away.
Ultimately, we decided to go with the team that is more complete right now, and has a better chance at a ring due to their superior depth and assets. There is long-term stability in Golden State, and we are rather accustomed to a backup role on a championship contender.
Chris Mullin's consistent effort to pull Boris away from his competitor were quite admirable, but the main reason Boris chose the Warriors was that the team is already set, more pieces are still being added this offseason, and he believes the Warriors have a great chance at a ring, and he'd like to add to his collection.
Boris is excited to join the Warriors!
