ESPN's Chris Broussard reported Tuesday that the league-leading Warriors could also bid for McGee:

The 76ers waived McGee on Sunday so he could sign with a team and be eligible for the postseason. He's expected to clear waivers by Wednesday, and then teams will begin their scramble to sign him.

With Tyson Chandler and Chandler Parsons out injured, Dallas is 3-3 since the All-Star break. The Mavericks (40-22) are sixth in the Western Conference.

McGee has been a minor presence on the court this season; he is averaging 4.6 points and 2.7 rebounds in 23 games.
