Rockets To Meet With JaVale McGee

The Rockets’ search for a new big man will include Lakers center JaVale McGee, tweets Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports. Houston officials will meet with McGee today in Los Angeles, along with Warriors center Kevon Looney, as we relayed yesterday.

McGee, 31, averaged a career-best 12.0 PPG for L.A. this season, along with 7.5 rebounds in 75 games. He has also played for the Wizards, Nuggets, Sixers, Mavericks and Warriors.

The Rockets will reportedly move starting center Clint Capela if they can work out a sign-and-trade deal for Sixers free agent Jimmy Butler. Backup Nene opted out of next year’s contract yesterday, leaving no other experienced center on the roster.

    Capela was the hero & got paid; Paul & The Beard bitch about each other and he gets the boot , now granted he was over paid but not the issue there … Houston put too much into old ass CP , Harden is stuck to deal w him as is Houston … unless LeBronnny’s LA Lakers can fingure out a way to get him back to the sunshine state , I’m sure his banana boat buddies D-Wade and Melo will be there too ..
