The Denver Nuggets have finalized a deal to acquire center JaVale McGee from the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Cavaliers reportedly will add center Isaiah Hartenstein and two future protected second-round picks.
McGee, who started his career with the Washington Wizards, played for the Nuggets from 2011-15 before stops with the Philadelphia 76ers, Dallas Mavericks, Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Lakers and Cleveland.
McGee is averaging 8.0 ppg, 5.2 rpg and 1.2 bpg in 33 games as a reserve for the Cavs this season. He will join a Nuggets team that’s currently No. 5 in the West with a record of 26-18. In Denver, McGee will be a backup to All-Star big man Nikola Jokic.
