07:17 AM ET 07.22 | After significant personnel moves, the Warriors are in need of filling out their roster. In an interview with FanHouse on Wednesday at Team USA training camp, general manager Larry Riley confirmed Golden State is looking into the possibility of bringing back [Anthony] Tolliver and forward Devean George, also an unrestricted free agent who averaged 5.4 points last season with the Warriors. Riley said it's not out of the question both could be re-signed. "We have some decisions to make," said Riley, who said he hopes to sort matters out in the next 10 days. ... George told FanHouse last week he wants to return to the Warriors. While nothing is certain, Riley does like George. "The whole package on Devean is a good one," Riley said.

(seriously admitting) I didn't know he was still in the league

This guy still plays football, I thought he retired a while back playing for the Cowboys.

Sucks that Lee messed up his finger........

And he did that going for block. Tells me he didn't learn anything from D'Antoni. Thank you Golden State - he's the 80 million dollar man! On the real though the Warriors have picked up some odd mix. First they get David Lee, then the Harvard grad, let Morrow walk... then go after old Devean George... what are they trying to accomplish?

Its just his finger he will be alright, I have hurt mine and it help me develop my left hand in shooting and other things so when my right hand healed my game opened up more, for some players its a good thing, like Kobe

The Warriors!!! - Looks like going somewhere but actually heading nowhere!

What a waste of a premium fan base.

They are trying to improve their chance to win the draft lottery.

Maybe the warriors should just pick a couple fans from the stands to fill out the last 2 bench spots.

July 22, 2010  10:13 AM ET

Wanna try again, Bro?

July 22, 2010  10:34 AM ET

Athletic, but not too bright.

5 points gain, 10 point loss due to stupid mistakes, it was a great day when the Lakers traded him.

I should tryout for GS - I'm 5'9 and have a wicked J.

July 22, 2010  11:32 AM ET

Devean George? Really? I thought he would be out of the league by now.

Exhibit A of Kupcake's stupid contracts. Can't wait to get rid of Exhibit B (Walton) and C (Vujacic).

Warriors look at bringing back George

For what? Do they need someone to do the laundry?

First it look like GSW was cutting long term payroll by trading Maggette to the Bucks for two Nobodys in Danny G & Charlie Bell....then took on payroll getting Lee...the Harvard grad Lin...could turn out to be the next undrafted player Wesley Matthews

I like the Lee and Lin signings. Also like running off magette. They should have held on to Morrow, he is still improving.
As far as George, they are just trying to fill roster spots at this point. Nothing much to accomplish.

But a healthy Lee, Ellis can make them exciting. Fight for the 9th-10th spot in West

If Brian Cook (1.5 ppg avg 2009) can get a $3.5 million p/y contract with Clippers, well Devan George is worth more than Cook.
