Webber set to return to Golden State
OAKLAND, Calif. - More than 13 years after Chris Webber demanded to leave the Golden State Warriors, the free-agent forward is all set to return.
Webber sent an e-mail to The Associated Press on Monday night confirming he will rejoin the Warriors and coach Don Nelson, who won a power struggle with the former No. 1 draft pick in their messy first stint with the franchise.
The five-time All-Star is expected to be with the Warriors when they visit Houston today, though it's uncertain whether he'll play.
