Chris Webber Getting Closer to Golden State Warriors?

The once absurd prospect of Chris Webber reuniting with the Warriors and Don Nelson is moving toward reality.

With one team official putting the odds at "50-50" and another source saying that an announcement could be made by the end of the week, Webber’s possible arrival as a free agent is being met with approval by players.

"That’d be awesome," Baron Davis said Saturday. "We just want to become a better team. If management feels like they can bring in somebody who can help us do that, we’re all for it."

According to league sources, the idea of Webber returning was hatched more than a month ago with the Warriors looking for frontline help. [Click here for more from the San Francisco Chronicle.]
