I agree with your comments. It definitely seems like it was Gilly's decision. I wonder how the process works of switching teams? If the Warriors found out he was looking at switching, while still on the team, it probably would have hurt his playing time.With Kuminga back and Wiseman and Baldwin potentially getting cleared, Gilly may feel like floor time will be tough to come by. And he's already made his impression on the Warriors, so if the TWolves want to have a look at him, seems like a smart move.
They get a per diem to cover travel, meals, hotel PLUS $1500 for the 12-day period. It ain’t much but they’re getting the chance to showcase which is what the UDA guys all care about.Interesting. Article says per diem, I’ve always known that as per day in my work lol. Guess summer league is different
Some but not all meals are provided as a team, and anything outside of that has to come out of the $125/day per diem. But yes, travel and hotel are covered separately by the team.They get a per diem to cover travel, meals, hotel PLUS $1500 for the 12-day period.

Players receive a total of $1,500 in per diem during the 12-day league. Teams can distribute that cash in one complete payment upon arriving in Sin City. Some choose to provide the funds on a daily $125 or bi-daily $250 basis. Many players will eat their private meals at cheaper fast-food chains like the In-N-Out on UNLV’s campus in order to pocket more cash. As Cooley mentions, each team is housed within luxurious hotels and every player is granted his own room, typically priced at $115 per weeknight and $210 on weekend evenings. The Rockets have often stayed at the Golden Nugget, which is conveniently a property of their new owner Tilman Fertitta. It’s standard practice to provide two team meals per day, breakfast and lunch can bookend morning practices and shootarounds.
He has, but his best thing going for him is his crazy vertical leap. Not sure at 6'2, how much that really matters in the NBA, especially when he is not a PG at that size. I won't count him out, and good luck to him, but it will be tough for him to stick around. He has improved his 3 point shooting, which is a must for him to have a chance.McClung has always been a full-time highlight reel.
