David Lee has played his last game for the Golden State Warriors

Golden State Warriors power forward, David Lee, will be moving on to a different team this offseason.

This comes after his agent, Mark Bartelstein announced the agreement with the organization to "come up with a good solution" for both the player and the newly crowned NBA Champions. 

Lee lost his starting spot to Draymond Green early in the season, and after the Warriors fantastic start, Steve Kerr decided to keep Lee on the bench for the remainder of the season.

Lee played a roll for the Warriors that he certainly wasn't used to by any means, and it was one he will be hoping he doesn't play again next season for a different team.

Finals impact

However, after playing limited minutes throughout the season, Kerr put his faith into Lee in Game 3 of the NBA Finals as he was the first big man off the bench and contributed with 11 points, four rebounds, and two assists in 13 minutes.

The Golden State Coach kept his faith in the following Game 4 victory over the Cavaliers, bringing David Lee off the bench as the forward chipped in with nine points, five rebounds, and three assists.

While these numbers are a shadow of the ones Lee was putting up two seasons ago, his performances in the Finals showed that he still has a lot to offer for any other teams in the NBA who are looking for a new power forward.

Despite playing a limited role throughout the season, David Lee will inevitably be satisfied with the fact that he contributed to an NBA Championship win, and that he will be leaving the Golden State Warriors on a high note.
