I just went over to RealGM, and saw two posts from Warrior fans offering insight. I am going to re-post them here.

Warriors fan (and Raps fan) here. McGuirre is effing AWESOME. He can guard 4 positions... last year we had him on guys like Deron and Rose at clutch moments. He's still very incapable offensively, but he's an incredible specialist defender. We were super disappointed at losing him, but we didn't have space on our roster to keep him. He was starting for us at the end, which isn't saying much, but we were playing him above guys like Dorell Wright and even Brandon Rush.

Casey is going to fall in love with him. I guess he's kind of like James Johnson though.
Warriors fan insight here:

Dude is a damn good defender. That's what he was here, a hustle player that was put into rotations to shut down players 1 on 1 defensively. Kinda sucks how much you guys are making him seem out to be a horrible player without reasoning. He does the things that don't show up on the stat sheets. I remember one game, against the Nets, it was tied.. Nets had the last possession, clock winding down, and we put Dom on Deron Williams.. and as Deron went for the kill, D-Mac blocked the hell out of his shot.

He's a role-player. He's not gonna score a bunch, but everything else he does will have noticeable impact if he is utilized right. I'll miss this guy. Wish we could have resigned him. Great great great defender for how much he's paid. Defender, rebounder, hustle player. Every team needs that guy.
