Webber will likely become a Warrior tommorow

From Marc Stein of

Chris Webber's unlikely but fast-moving return to the Golden State Warriors is on course to be completed by Tuesday, according to sources close to the negotiations.

Barring an unexpected change of heart, sources said, Webber will accept the invitation from former coach Don Nelson and former teammate Chris Mullin to come back to the team with whom he won NBA Rookie of the Year honors in 1994, only for Webber to force a trade to Washington some six months later when his prickly relationship with Nelson collapsed.

Yahoo provide a further twist to the tale

I hope that it happens to be quite honest with you," Nelson said Sunday before the Warriors hosted the New York Knicks. "I think our team needs it."

In other words Nelson thinks the team needs Webber. To put this in perspective if you had tolkd me during the Mike Montgomery era that a few years later Monty would be fired, Nellie and Chris Webber would be reunited and Foyle, Dunleavy Murphy and Fisher would be gone I would have laughed but thats exaclty what happenned. It's still interesting to see Nellie thinks Webber would be an essential part of this team when he doesn't even give Brandon Wright some PT buts that another story.
