76ers Trade for JaVale McGee

The Philadelphia 76ers will stop at nothing to continue to add draft picks.

The Sixers let the Denver Nuggets unload JaVale McGee and his contract on them, while also acquiring a first-round pick in the process.

The Nuggets were looking to rid themselves of McGee’s contract, in which he makes $12 million next season and $11.2 million this year. It cost them a first-round pick to do so.

The 76ers may keep McGee, but it might be more likely that they agree to a buy-out. The draft pick is a first round pick via the Oklahoma City Thunder. It’s top-18 protected this season and lottery protected next season.

The Nuggets had acquired three-first round picks already–two via the Timofey Mozgov trade and one from the earlier Afflalo trade.
