Title: JaVale McGee Joins Sacramento Kings on One-Year Contract
Sacramento, CA – In a surprising move, the Sacramento Kings have signed free agent center JaVale McGee to a one-year guaranteed minimum contract. The 35-year-old player recently became available after being waived by the Dallas Mavericks, despite signing a three-year deal with the team.
McGee started the 2020-2021 season strong, earning a starting role in seven of the first nine games. However, as the season progressed, McGee fell out of the rotation and saw limited playing time. He ended the season with an average of 4.4 points and 2.5 rebounds per game in 42 appearances.
Throughout his career, McGee has been known for his athleticism and shot-blocking abilities. He has averaged 7.8 points and 5.2 rebounds per game in his previous seasons. Despite his limited playing time, McGee boasts an impressive resume, having won three NBA championships. He was a key contributor for the Golden State Warriors, winning two titles with the team. In the 2019-2020 season, he started in 68 regular-season games for the Los Angeles Lakers.
However, it came as a surprise when McGee did not play in the NBA Finals as the Lakers clinched the championship against the Miami Heat in the playoff bubble. This decision raised eyebrows among fans and experts alike.
Sources close to the situation revealed that the news about McGee’s signing with the Sacramento Kings was first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and confirmed by The Associated Press. The addition of McGee is expected to bolster the Kings’ frontcourt depth and provide veteran leadership to the team’s younger players.
As the Kings prepare for the upcoming season, McGee’s arrival brings both experience and the potential for an improvement in their performances. With his shot-blocking prowess and championship experience, the center could prove to be a valuable asset for the team.
Only time will tell how McGee fits into the Kings’ system and whether he can regain his previous form. Fans eagerly anticipate seeing him in action wearing the purple and black as the new NBA season approaches.
