Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge attempted to negotiate a deal with McGee after he was waived by the 76ers in March. The Celtics wanted to sign him to a multiyear deal, potentially to become their starting center. But McGee wanted a rest-of-the-season deal so he could cash in on free agency in the summer. As it turned out, he didn’t cash in because the injury lingered. “I was real close,” he said. “I came [to Boston] for a day and went back [home]. It just didn’t work out. It just didn’t fit right, but it all worked out for me.”
