Former Warrior Center Chris Hunter Back In Midwest

One of the Golden State D-Leaguers Chris Hunter is back on the rader, returning to his old stomping grounds of the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, an NBA d-league team.

Hunter caught the injury bug towards the end of last season with tendinitis in his knee, which most Warriors fans will remember him limping like a mummy just so the Warriors could have 5 players on the floor in their final game against the Portland Trailblazers. But Hunter, a gentle big man who quietly did his work, is staying optimistic about his chances to return to the NBA:

In limited minutes, Hunter was inconsistent but you could see he had the interior presence and the offensive tools to be in the league. I remembered being wowed by his offensive grace and ability to step out and shoot jumpers. He could step out at hit jumpers but for some reason couldn't hit a 1-foot shot to save his life. Lets hope Hunter gets picked up again, though he probably worries that it will be the Warriors given their injury situations.
