Reports: Los Angeles Lakers adding JaVale McGee

From NBA Twitter and media reports

Veteran center JaVale McGee is moving on from the Golden State Warriors and reportedly joining the Los Angeles Lakers. According to multiple reports, McGee has a one-year, minimum deal with the Lakers for the 2018-19 season.

McGee’s agreement was part of a furious evening of activity with the Lakers, who previously came to terms with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Lance Stephenson and, of course, LeBron James.

McGee is coming off two productive seasons with the Warriors, averaging 6.1 and 4.8 points per game while helping them win successive championships.

Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times has more on McGee’s reported move to Los Angeles:

McGee joins the Lakers from the Golden State Warriors, with whom he won two championships and guarded James fiercely in the Finals. The 7-footer played in 65 games for the Warriors last season, starting 17, including three games in the Finals. He averaged 9.5 minutes and 4.8 points a game last season.
