Nuggets Offer JaVale McGee Five-Year Deal

We haven't heard many JaVale McGee rumors this summer, but that doesn't mean that the seven-footer hasn't received any interest. According to Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post, the Nuggets have a five-year offer worth $50MM on the table for McGee. However, the center's representatives don't appear to be in a hurry to finalize a deal, and will continue to negotiate.

The Trail Blazers and Rockets are a couple teams that could provide Denver some competition for McGee's services. Houston seems focused on landing Dwight Howard though, so it's unclear if McGee would wait long enough for the Rockets to circle back to him as a Plan B. The Blazers, meanwhile, aren't expected to seek another top free agent center after losing out on Roy Hibbert, though I wouldn't rule them out entirely.

The Nuggets are the only team that could offer McGee a fifth year on a contract, though a rival suitor could easily top the annual salary Denver is offering. A max contract for the 24-year-old would mean four years and about $58MM from another team, or five years and $78MM from the Nuggets.
