JaVale McGee is on the radar of many NBA teams.
It’s no secret that JaVale McGee can be an impactful roster on the right NBA team and with the right head coach. McGee has a history of making dumb decisions, but as a backup big man, he could most definitely be a nice player for a playoff team. With McGee waived last week by the Philadelphia 76ers, he’s on the open market and many teams are interested in him. It’s no surprise that the teams that are interested in him are all teams that have aspirations of making a deep run in the playoffs.
According to Bleacher Report, multiple teams are interested in McGee and the services he can bring. Considering talks are getting hot, McGee will more than likely be on a new team in the next week. Marc Stein of ESPN reported that the Dallas Mavericks are interested in McGee.
Stein also reported that the Miami Heat have interest in the Nevada product.
Chris Broussard, also of ESPN, reported that the league-leading Golden State Warriors also have interest in McGee, as they see him as insurance in case Andrew Bogut gets injured, which given his history is more than likely to happen.
Jumping into the fun is the Toronto Raptors, who also have interest in McGee.
In the NBA Playoffs, having a deep bench is vital and a key ingredient in the recipe for postseason success. Whoever brings in McGee will be getting a player that can still make his impact felt on a game.
