Denver wanted JaVale McGee off their roster so badly last season they attached a first rounder to his trade package just to move him. Of course, Philadelphia jumped in to get that pick, but the Sixers were not going to inject McGee into their young locker room, so they bought him out. McGee could sign anywhere he wanted yet he couldn’t reach a deal with anyone.
So who wants him now? How about the Sacramento Kings.
The team already in the middle of the DeMarcus Cousins struggle -- the owner loves Cousins and wants to build around him, the coach George Karl is trying to push him out the door -- may be in the running to bring in McGee. Because things aren’t crazy enough.
